Getting funding for innovation can be tricky
Jennifer & Jean Spencer, CoFounders, Agloves a Colorado Companies to Watch Winner 2012 enclosure-voice 1301_ 10/22/12 - Despite the fact that there are few women entrepreneurs and even fewer women entrepreneurs in technology fields, Jennifer and Jean Spencer are finding success doing just that. The mother-daughter team has invented, branded and marketed technology-enhanced winter gloves that work on all touch screen devices. The gloves are called Agloves and have been a major hit in both domestic and international markets. The reason for gloves’ year-in-year-out success? “It’s a simple solution to a very common problem with technology,” said Jennifer Spencer, the company’s vice president of communications. The gloves are knit with real silver thread. Silver is, in fact, the secret ingredient to the gloves functionality, and are also how the company gets its name. 'Ag' is the chemical symbol for silver on the Periodic Table of the Elements. The gloves work well on all touchscreen devices like smartphones, tablets and e-readers. Agloves are winter gloves that work on touchscreen devices. Why? Because normal winter gloves don’t work on our favorite devices like iPhones or Androids. So when it’s cold out you have to take off your gloves and freeze your fingertips just to answer a call or write a text message. Agloves integrates patent-pending technology to deliver the most functional touchscreen gloves on the market. Jennifer also offered some great advice for entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes. "If you believe in yourself and your product move beyond the entrepreneur stage. Growth, collaboration and teamwork with help bring your idea or innovation to a bigger and more impactful state." ...Listen for much more...

Serial entrepreneur and strategic workforce development
Melodie Reagan,Founder/Partner,  i2iWorkforce, Crazy Good Marketing, Boulder/Denver Moxie - Serial Entrepreneurenclosure-voice 1303_ 10/22/12 - We are speaking with a serial entrepreneur... Of course, we've talked with Melodie Reagan before - so we've asked her to give us a rundown of what she's doing now. She tells us, i2iWorkforce is a strategic workforce development firm. We do recruiting, contract staffing, training and coaching. We have over 20 workshops that are soft skills development. But, we are also moving all of our content online. Crazy Good Marketing is a marketing agency with a twist. We use freelance talent throughout the U.S. And, we do everything from deploying individuals, like someone to help with the website, all the way through to doing turnkey marketing themes that are on-demand for our clients. Melodie deals with entrepreneurs all the time. We asked, what are the biggest challenges facing them today? She replied, "I'm going to sum it up in one word, money. Money is the biggest challenge. I know entrepreneurs that are looking for money to fund their businesses and grow it, and it's hard to get. Even for yourself, if you're getting second mortgages, all the way through private equity and venture capital. Everything about money - so business is about money, and getting other businesses to buy their services - and when they do buy it, they're looking to get more for less. So very simply, money." We also discussed with Melodie what were the greatest opportunities today and asked her, "what advice would you give to a wannabe entrepreneur?" Listen for great insights into today's business environment...

Nikaela Nelson, Stepping Out to Stomp Out Diabetes 10/20/12  Team #@%! Diabetes Step Out to Stop Diabetes - Denver
October 20, 2012
Kirsten Nelson, RN, Teacher,
enclosure-voice 1295_ 10/15/12 - Nikaela Nelson and her Team, '#@%! Diabetes', are Stepping Out because they want to make a difference in the lives of all those affected by diabetes. Niko said, "We want to stop diabetes in its tracks. We are Stepping Out because we know, first hand, what it takes to live with diabetes. More than 3650 finger pricks in a year, at least 182 infusion site changes or 2190+ injections per year." Convoluted (yet life saving) mathematical gymnastics at every meal. (That's barely even a beginning...) We choose to Step Out in order to Stomp Out Diabetes. And, we want You to join us. Please, make a donation to a team member, or join our team . You can walk with us, run for us, or cheer us on virtually. We know that when we bring together dedicated team members and kind donors, the power we have as a group far outweighs what any of us could do alone.
    Listen to Nikaela, in 7 minutes she will tell you, there are several types of diabetes and that by 2050 it is estimated that 1 in 3 people will suffer from some form of diabetes. It's a very expensive disease, costing her family $1,000 + each month. Nikaela says in 2050 that might significantly impact our economy. Listen as this 12 year old has more to tell you about this fight....

An entrepreneur and high profile venture capitalist, Feld details the ingredients necessary to catalyze locations where high growth ventures can flourish.

Social Entrepreneurism focused on women
Connie Duckworth, Founder/CEO, ARZU - Keynote Speaker at Annual Social Entrepreneurship ACG Denver & CIMCO Denver enclosure-voice 1295_ 10/15/12 - Social entrepreneur Connie Duckworth founded ARZU, (which means “hope” in Dari), in 2004, to empower destitute women weavers in rural Afghanistan. Connie serves pro bono as Chairman and CEO. Starting with 30 weavers, ARZU has transformed into a learning laboratory for holistic grassroots economic development —today employing some 700 women, providing access to education and basic healthcare, seeding multiple micro-business start-ups, building community centers, pre-schools and parks, and creating award-winning fair-labor rugs—all in a country ranked as “the world’s worst place to be a woman.” Ms. Duckworth retired in 2001 as a Partner and Managing Director of Goldman Sachs, the first woman to be named a sales and trading partner in the firm’s history. She tells us she really wanted to rebalance how she spent her time. So she envisioned 1/3 business activities, 1/3 philanthropic activities and 1/3 family oriented activities. ARZU became the focus of her philanthropy. ARZU is an example of a 'for benefit corporation'. It uses private sector practices to create jobs in very remote rural villages in Afghanistan, and produces export quality products. Because of her business lens, Connie sees a social business as the way to empower people through employment. It seemed like a natural fit as Connie's passion has always been women's rights. To Connie, the shortest path is through economic advancement. The women in Afghanistan are truly among the most disadvantaged women in the world. Connie Duckworth is the Keynote Speaker at the CIMCO Annual Social Enterprise event at ACG Denver! Listen for more...

The world is a very big market these days
Avram Saunders, President & CEO, Lightning Eliminators & Consultants - Colorado Companies to Watch winner!enclosure-voice 1295_ 10/15/12 - Like a bolt of lightning, Larry struck a Colorado Companies to Watch 2012 winner. Here's the background. The traditional lightening rod has been around since Ben Franklin. Forty-one years ago, Lightening Eliminators was founded by Roy Carpenter, an engineer at Rockwell working on a NASA project. NASA's equipment was getting hit by lightening, routinely, creating havoc. They tasked Roy with coming up with the solution. He did! But it was an out of the box, unique, highly creative solution. It's called the 'Charge Transfer System'. Avram Saunders, president and CEO of LEC Global, tells us that fundamentally what it does is provide a zone of protection around the facility so that the lightening does not hit at all. It goes somewhere else, literally. Lightning rods attract lightening and send them into the ground - but that has all kinds of problems associated with it such as electrical surges. If you have a billion dollars invested in a facility which would you prefer? Lightning to go somewhere else or to be attracted to your facility? So, Avram tells us that is how they began 41 years ago - now they are in 69 countries with 3000+ installations around the world. LEC Global works with clients from the beginning to the end of the spectrum of need. To the entrepreneur, Avram says the best piece of advice he can give is FOCUS. You have to be very clear on what you're doing, why you're doing it, and how you're doing it. Avram is a serial entrepreneur having started and run many businesses over the years...listen for more...
