Feld and Mendelson - How venture capital deals work
Brad Feld, Venture Deals, CoAuthor, enclosure-voice 11089_ 7/8/13-8/2011 - (Recorded 8/29/11) - When Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson sat down to write their book the goal was to aim it at every entrepreneur, to really help them understand how venture capital deals work. Brad Feld, in Tuscany, Italy talks with Larry Nelson via Skype to tell us about his newest book, "Venture Deals...Be smarter than your lawyer and venture capitalist". The inspiration for the book came from the Term Sheet Series that Jason and Brad wrote about five-six years ago. This is a particularly valuable book for entrepreneurs looking for money... You'll get an insider's view of the venture deal process, the different players involved on the deal side including how venture firms are setup. And, they talk about how an entrepreneur should think about the fund raising process. The term sheet is a very complicated document and there are a lot of things that people negotiate. But there are essentially only two things that matter which are economics and control. Here they've spent a lot of time helping the reader understand which terms related to economics and which terms were related to control and how and what that meant. It's meant to be a guide not a text book with material that can be very dry and boring. They've made fun of lawyers, venture capitalists and themselves along the way, but there goal was to...don't miss the rest of Brad's advice, listen now!

Matt Pardee, Chief Evangelist, StrongLoop Products, training and support for Apps
enclosure-voice 1403_ 7/1/13 - Back at the Glue Conference with 500 people in attendance, the booths and companies represented are fabulous. We're talking with Matt Pardee, Chief Evangelist for StrongLoop. Started five months ago, born out of the desire to have a commercial vendor to back Node.js, which is a burgeoning language that's growing in popularity - its javaScript on the server. Up until now there wasn't a company that commercially backed it for companies that were going into production with Node.js. Matt said, "We love Node.js, guys in our company helped build Node.js and so we thought let's put this together, let's provide some support avenues for companies that are going into production and let's ask them what they need and then build products round that - so that's what we do." StrongLoop creates products, training and support for Node.js, a relatively young coding language, about four years old. A lot of the companies that have adopted it have been more of the avant-garde companies that were willing to make the investment and had the developers to do that. Now you see traditional ecommerce companies and companies like GM and CBS Interactive, etc . starting to look at Node.js as a solution to the problem of connecting a lot of people to their servers at once to either power their games or mobile devices. It's really the language that's becoming backend to a lot of the new experiences that are happening in the 2000 apps. When we're talking about what the benefits are for companies moving into this mobile era, this is a really natural fit for companies that have this experience with java script on the client side...there's more...

Pat & Larry Nelson, CoFounders, w3w3® Media Network - Change Is Not an Event, It Is an Ongoing Process (the Same with Chaos)
enclosure-voice 534_ 7/1/13 - Mastering change is one of Pat and Larry Nelson's favorite topics. There's a good reason. They have lived in and owned businesses in five foreign countries stretching from Norway to Australia. They are truly serial entrepreneurs as they have started more than a dozen companies. Some were extremely successful and others learning experiences. One thing that was true in every situation were the rushing changes. At times they were victims and others they were victors. Larry has conducted seminars for numerous companies both large and small, public and private sectors, in dozen countries, on the subject of 'Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos'. In this recorded discussion Larry and Pat discuss the 'Six Truths About Change'. The topic includes; Resistance, Involvement, Making Losers, Vision, Benefits, and Follow up. Like the Nelsons say, "Master Change Before It Masters You." Listen now...

Dr. Arlen Meyers Percolated up to a national agenda item
enclosure-voice 1404_ 7/8/13 - He is involved with so much and he still has time to hear student concerns. We're talking to Dr. Arlen Meyers, about the CU Program of Bio Innovation and Entrepreneurship, basically a certificate program for graduate level, business, science, engineering, law, health professionals, who are interested in getting an idea to a patient. Dr. Meyers, and CU created the program because there was a gap in providing these students with the business skills needed to find a job. The NSF and the graduate school community has recognized the gap, and finally it's percolated up to a national agenda item. "So", says Arlen, "we have created a program to provide the knowledge, skills, abilities, experience and networks that these people need to interact with industry and get a job." It is Arlen's belief that entrepreneurs need four things to be successful: "They need education; they need experience, networks and they need money, We provide all four in the program." Listen for more about the program and the unique legal and regulatory environment for bio science and health innovation and entrepreneurship. It is probably the most regulated industry in the U.S. Arlen Meyers, MD, MBA, is a professor at the CU School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology and he is President/CEO of the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs. Part 4 of 4...

Navin Thadani, SVP,Products, ravello systems Building better products and faster software with higher quality
enclosure-voice 1405_ 7/8/13 - For the past six weeks we've introduced you to some of the interesting folks we met at GlueCon 2013. Here now, meet Navin Thadani, SVP of products for Ravello Systems, an organization based in Palo Alto, California and Israel. This is their first time at Glue and it's been very good for them because they've been able to get the full, broad exposure to a variety of developers working on really interesting projects and technologies. From Ravello's perspective, that's really good because they try to provide the very best kind of development and test lab infrastructure possible. The idea being, developers replicate their applications into the Ravello system where they can create as many problems as they want for rapid development, prototyping and testing. Ravello is a company that is at the intersection of two fields of technology one being virtualization and the other cloud computing. They've built a set of infrastructure that allows them to enable enterprise developers to take their applications exactly as they are, and run that in any cloud - replicate their entire environment, make as many copies as they want and rapidly develop their features and test. Essentially it's about building better products, better software faster and with higher quality.

Treatment and prevention of brain damage
Greg Miknis, Matt Pink & Kim Heidenreichenclosure-voice 1402_ 7/1/13 - Here's another win with CUTTO. Dr. Kim Heidenreich, Professor of Pharmacology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado-School of Medicine, in collaboration with Dr. Greg Miknis and the team at the Colorado Center for Drug Discovery (C2D2) at CSU, have made great strides in developing novel therapies for the treatment and prevention of brain damage caused by traumatic brain injury (TBI). In 2007, Kim’s lab discovered that a very potent inflammatory mediator, normally not found in the central nervous system, is present in the brain after TBI. Kim discovered that if this inflammatory mediator is blocked, secondary injury to the brain and the deleterious effects of TBI can be prevented. Together, Kim and Greg have developed a novel series of compounds that can inhibit this inflammatory molecule. The project is now moving toward advanced pre clinical studies that if successful will bring the program one step closer to a clinically approved drug, benefiting victims of this growing unmet medical need. When Larry interviewed Kim and Greg which was arranged by Matt Pink, Licensing Manager for the Colorado University Tech Transfer Office many interesting and valuable points were discussed. You will learn about the incidence of TBI and concussion as well as appreciate why TBI is a major public health problem. This interview will hopefully provide HOPE for listeners who have experienced a TBI or health providers for TBI patients. There is increased nonfederal funding for TBI (GE and NFL gifts) that is focused on diagnosis of TBI via blood bio markers or neural imaging. This is great but we also need more funding for developing TBI treatments ...Listen for more...
