Heroes talking about the actions of other heroes
Chris Pelley, Creator of the  Social Enterprise Event, Managing Director, CIMCO Private Wealthenclosure-voice 1336_ 1/14/13 - HP Chris Pelley has been on the board of ACG Denver for the past eight years and they've been kind enough to help Chris and CIMCO Private Wealth, sponsor the whole notion around Social Enterprise, this year was our sixth annual event. Bud Ahearn helped with that two day event featuring Connie Duckworth, CEO of ARZU Carpets, held Monday, at CU, CSU, and DU Women's College Tuesday morning and then the ACG 6th Annual lunch. General Joseph A 'Bud' Ahearn has worked with Chris for six years to help promote the notion around social enterprise. Bud said, "To start let me tell you about the sponsor of the program, Chris Pelley. Actually his mission in life is to transform private wealth into community wealth, to global wealth. We see that at Connie Duckworth and Bud Ahearn, Social Enterprise 6th Annual Eventwork in his day-to-day actions and constant sponsorship of social entrepreneurship. One must have the prerequisites in place with wealth that then this notion of making it multiply is the humanity that brings us together. Connie Duckworth, the former managing partner of Goldman Sachs was here. She's taken on a powerful leadership role for women in the U.S. to deploy to the developing world, which makes up 99% of our globe, to get out and show women of the world how to create real value for their families, communities and their country. Connie is an authentic leader who grew up in a very tough, male dominated financial world. Connie is slight in stature but extremely strong in character." Bud tells us that Connie is committed to a sense of service to her family, her community and to women. This isn't a dream but an experiential hands-on the creation and fulfillment of hope for women. Today she's got 700 women in Afghanistan out of huddled masses and out weaving today and leveraging a remarkable brand of Afghani carpet making. Listen for more about this fascinating interview....

John Condon, QFO Labs Games on, and the helicopters are up
enclosure-voice 1335_ 1/14/13 - Games on, and the copters are up! At Blur 2012 we were dodging palm sized helicopters as well as the crowds of folks. We stopped to talk with John Condon, CTO and Jim Fairman, COO at QFO Labs to see what all the commotion was about. So what they've done is design a tilt-a-fly, nano sized, quad-rotor helicopter. Here we are witnessing QFO Labs first product in their Real-LIfe, 3-D Gaming Series. Launching on Kickstarter, the NanoQ Copter with Mimix Tilt-to-Fly Controller is an innovative system that takes the gaming experience off a flat video screen and into the physical world. NanoQ - a palm-sized, quad-rotor helicopter is flown wirelessly with the Mimix controller by simply tilting your wrist. The experience is so intuitive and engaging that users fly by feeling, allowing them to control the craft while competing with others in team-based aerial games.The Kickstarter project for the Mimix controller and NanoQ copter can be found at Supporters on the crowdfunding site can be the first to obtain the products. On the second afternoon of Defrag (November 15, 2012), they kicked off Blur. Blur (which ran the 15th and 16th) is the event that focuses on next-generation human computer interaction (think robots, augmented reality, “minority report” interfaces, etc). In other words, for several hours at the end of day 2 of Defrag, the events did overlap, as Blur keynoters took the stage. Blur continued on for the rest of that evening and the following day...There's more...

Reducing the URL length makes sharing easier
Hilary Mason, Chief Scientist, bitlyenclosure-voice 1332_ 1/7/13 - Lucy Sanders, CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network interviewed Hilary Mason, for NCWIT's Hero Series with inspirational women leaders in technology and IT sector. Hilary has a great job, she is the chief scientist at bitly. Through its URL shortening and bookmarking services bitly provides a fun and easy way to save, share, and discover links from the web by using links called "bitmarks". Reducing the URL length makes sharing easier - pretty important to services like Twitter, for example. As Chief Scientist, Hilary's work crosses pure research, math, and development of product-focused systems. Hilary loves New York and she loves NY entrepreneurs - she is the Co-Organizer for DataGotham, Co-Founder of HackNY, as well as a member of the NYC Resistor. She is also involved with the NY TechStars effort, something near and dear to our hearts. How did Hilary become interested in technology? Hilary said, it started when she was a little girl. She was fascinated by computers and she taught herself to write code from the back of magazines when she was still in elementary school. Her fascination continued and she went on and majored in computer sciences. Her love for technology continues and she thinks it is amazing that the computer she carries in her pocket is more powerful than the one she used in elementary school. Hilary has mixed feeling about the word entrepreneur because it's so overloaded in our culture, and it's become trendy in a way that she's not sure is healthy. The way Hilary describes her work is she tends to find problems and then try to make things that solve the problems. It's engineering the right thing to solve the problem - no so much about starting a business just for the sake of being an entrepreneur...Listen for more...

Learning how to build healthier brain habits
Ariel Garten with Kirsten Nelson using the 'Muse' the brain wave sensor and computer interface...enclosure-voice 1334_ 1/7/13 - We've enlisted Kirsten Nelson to help us cover the blur conference with so much cutting edge technology and business to check out here. We're talking with Ariel Garten, CEO and cofounder of InteraXon, specializing in non-invasive brain-computer interfaces - thought controlled computing products and applications... It's just what it sounds like, it is the ability to interact with content directly with your mind. The 'Muse' is a sensor that sits on your forehead and uses your brain waves and then lets you play games with your brain, interact with lighting systems, control music, or allow you to see inside your own mind, and see your own brain activity. You can use that information to improve your cognitive fitness, improve your emotional regulation and see what your brain is doing at different times of the day. Kirsten asked Ariel if there were specific groups that could benefit from this kind of technology. Ariel said, "...everyone can benefit from learning how to build healthier brain habits, how to improve their own mental functioning and, the way they interact in the world. In particular kids with ADD can benefit from it. Kids with ADD have lowered levels of beta waves and actually playing games with their brain - specifically with their beta waves can decrease their ADD symptoms as effectively as Ritalin." Where is this technology going in the future? Ariel explains, "In the far future it will be as ubiquitous as voice or gesture technology is now. Using your mind to interact with technology is going to be a really basic way to interact with the world." InteraXon was formed in 2007 when Ariel Garten decided to commercialize the thought controlled computing technology initially developed by world-renowned cyberneticist Dr. Steve Mann and his colleague, Dr. James Fung...There's more...

Sam is also the new program director for Colorado Companies to Watch, which is now four years into the program with 200 companies highlighted and close to, if not over a thousand finalists. Sam said, "We have really seen a lot of companies and communities come out and support these businesses - highlight them, recognize them - so the program has grown to quite a prestigious honor. This year alone we had a wonderful geographical diversity across the state of Colorado. We had companies from rural and urban communities - communities that we haven't seen on stage before.

Economic predictions for 2013, 2014 and beyond
Alan Beaulieu, Economist, Institute Trend Researchenclosure-voice 1337_ 1/14/13 - This is the fourth year running here as ACG Denver starts the new year out with a look into the future featuring keynote speaker Alan Beaulieu, economist with Institute Trend Research. This is a very popular program at ACG, everyone makes it a point to be here in January. Check back in the Archives and you can listen to Alan's past previews into the coming year. Today Alan points out a lot has happened since we last spoke - "the fiscal cliff, we've got Europe going on... I mean there is no lack of things to ponder." Today Alan is talking about what the semi-resolution of the fiscal cliff means for the economy in 2013. Whether Europe is going to implode or not? The answer is not. Whether the Chinese economy is going to sink or expand? It's going to expand. Whether the U.S. economy is going to see more opportunities for businesses in 13? The answer is yes. And the reason for all of that is what we're going to be discussing here at ACG Denver today. But the reality is, this economy is in a real recovery. It's a sustainable recovery and, it's not going to end for another three maybe three-and-a-half quarters." LN: What are some of the other things you'd like to highlight?
Alan, "Well there's a recession coming in 2014. And, we need to start thinking now about how we're going to get ready for that. And I think more importantly, Larry, because that's pretty short cycle, we should realize that 15, 16, 17 - they're really good years coming! - And business leaders should ask themselves, What do I need to do now to get ready to be busy again? Because, we've had a hunker-down, no-spend, watch-the-cash mentality for so long that we're going to walk right into a great recovery and we're going to be ill prepared for it. Being ill prepared for a recovery is as bad as being ill prepared for a recession." Larry recaps for clarity: Fourteen is going to be a little tough and challenging. But then 15, 16 and 17 they're going to be coming back. "Right" said Alan, "You're absolutely right Larry! We're going to be happy! We're not going to be retiring but it'll be a good time in the country." ...listen for more ...

Learn about the true heroes living amongst us
Chris Pelley with General Joseph 'Bud" Ahearn enclosure-voice 1331_ 1/7/13 - It is always such a pleasant surprise to find and learn about the true heroes living amongst us. So often they are quietly leading their lives with never a word of what they've accomplished and often continuing to give us more. We think it's part of the fabric of what makes them the heroes they are. The Community Reach Channel, sponsored by CIMCO (Capital Investment Management Company) and our friend Chris Pelley, proudly introduce us to Bud Ahearn. Bud spent thirty-four years in the United States Air Force where he retired as a Two-Star General, building and managing Air Force bases around the world, and then 20 years with CH2M Hill and over 10 years with Engineers Without Borders. Chris said, "Bud has been a role model and a guiding light in the field of social enterprise, where business people and corporations can find alignment and purpose." After graduating from engineering school in 1958, Bud joined the Air Force, stationed at Camp Cook Air Force Base, now known as Vandenberg Air Force Base. Bud said when he arrived it was a couple of posts and a rusty chain. It was chosen to be a space base where their mission in life was to seize and maintain control of space. This first assignment was awesome and filled with heroic aspiration, "...and our nation fulfilled that." This is the beginning of Bud Ahearn's career. As awe inspiring as that is, his story continues - a story that touches the world and continues to inspire and impress. Learn more about our local hero, General Joseph A 'Bud' Ahearn...

Tom Smerdon, Interim Associate Vice President, Technology Transfer Office, University of Colorado Funding biotech technologies with matching funds for startup companies
enclosure-voice 1333_ 1/7/13 - We're back with Tom Smerdon, Interim Associate Vice President of the University of Colorado Technology Transfer Office in Boulder. We are starting the new year with a look at some metrics for the past year as well as a look at the coming year. The Tech Transfer Office covers the entire Colorado University system, with campuses in Boulder, downtown Denver, the Anschutz Medical Campus and the Colorado Springs campus. The bulk of the research dollars are going into the Boulder as well as the medical campus and most of the inventions are going to be coming out of that research from those campuses. But there is still a significant amount of research going on in Colorado Springs and some in downtown Denver in terms of funded research. Tom said, "Last year we had 226 invention disclosures on a system wide basis. That was down from the year before, but still a very healthy number. Applications were a little above last year, we filed 261 applications and executed 47 option license agreements [in line with and greater than past years] but we'd certainly like to get that number up as well as the number of exclusive licenses which tend to be the real revenue generators. Last year we had 32 of those. In terms of startups, , there were ten spun out of the university system - split pretty evenly between Boulder and Denver with a couple out of Colorado Springs." This has been very steady, over the past 8 or 9 years, they've averaged about 10-11 each year. Tom is very pleased to tell us, "Most of those companies...listen for more ...
