Terrifying stories of identity theft and cyber security
Ray Hutchins, President, Denver Cyber Securityenclosure-voice 1433_ 9/9/13 - Larry talked with Ray Hutchins, a serial entrepreneur, president of TiE Rockies, President, Denver Cyber Security, and has more companies involved in web site development, SEO, and cyber security. We are talking with Ray about cyber security today and as you will hear this subject has become an issue that demands every business, large and small, take action now. Recently TiE Rockies began a series, 'Information Assets - Your Corporate Crown Jewels and the Very Real Threat of Cyber Espionage'. We've all heard the frightening stories of Identity Theft, and so much more. Ray became involved years ago because he has two businesses, Denver Web Services and Denver Cyber Security - and he's had a lot of web sites, 600 now. But he had trouble with them being hacked and he was constantly defending them, figuring out ways to keep these people out of his web sites. One thing led to another as he developed his knowledge. A burgeoning interest became a passion and he became better and better at understanding the issues of cyber security and all the various tools and methodologies available to defend web sites and networks and to defend data and the movement of data. His passion continued to develop as the threats have grown more sinister. With a decade of experience, Ray is a recognized expert and in the business of defending people's networks and defending their businesses. Ray tells us the hacker community, worldwide, is in utter shock that the American Business leadership has not gotten their ducks in a row. It is their perception that American business leadership has its head in the sand. That they don't ... Listen, Ray has much more. This is Part 1 of 2.... Be sure to listen next week...

Terry Gold, CEO/Founder, Gold Systems, a Microsoft Corp. Gold Certified 
      Partner Specializing in Unified Communications and speech recognition technology
enclosure-voice 1429_ 9/3/13 - Larry got some exciting information from Gold Systems CEO Terry Gold. Gold Systems, a Microsoft Corp. Gold Certified Partner specializing in Unified Communications and speech recognition technology, has delivered its Vonetix 7 Voice platform to Microsoft IT. Vonetix 7 Voice will serve as the new platform for Microsoft to develop many of its voice self-service applications, which serve Microsoft customers calling for support on a wide array of Microsoft products and services. Vonetix 7 Voice makes it easy for customers to contact Microsoft, and provides the same great experience customers expect from Microsoft products. By deploying Vonetix 7 Voice as the UC application and IVR platform for these applications, Microsoft now takes advantage of faster application deployment lifecycle on a voice self-service platform running on its Microsoft Lync product line. Terry said, “We have been working for Microsoft IT, the company’s internal information technology organization, for many years creating software that makes it easier for Microsoft customers, partners and employees to get support by calling 1-800-Microsoft and other support numbers. We are thrilled to now be delivering the Vonetix 7 Voice platform alongside the existing Unified Communications applications.” Listen and check their link for more info...

Howard Potter, JD, MBA, CPA, S T Consulting Advantages to forming your own captive insurance company
enclosure-voice 1431_ 9/3/13 - We're talking with Howard Potter Managing Director at ST Consulting, LLC, , a firm he set up in 1996 when he quit the practice of law and also the practice of CPA, and he began consulting, primarily in the area of financial and tax consulting. For the last 13 years Howard's been involved in micro captive insurance companies. The underlying concept is that all businesses have uninsured risks and these uninsured risks are frequently risks that you cannot buy coverage for in the conventional market. Examples might be product recalls, product liability, business interruption, loss of key supplier, loss of key vendor. Howard tells us they set up a captive insurance company for a surgical center up in the mountains. "One of the risks we covered was, loss of income because of reduction of Medicare reimbursements." Howard's challenge is to examine companies, identify these risks so he can actually come up with a premium. The company continues with traditional insurance, but now he pays additional premiums to himself / his insurance company. Last year their company, on a nationwide basis, did 102 of these transactions. The preceding year they did about 60, so this has really caught on. Larry asked if there were limits on the types of companies that could use this kind of insurance. The answer... Listen for the details... Howard is founder of the Cross Networking Event coming up on 9/26/13. The whole event is geared toward networking - no speakers, just great food and the people you are looking to connect with.

APEX Awards Dinner 2013 - Colorado Technology Association
APEX Awards Dinner 9/10/2013

Path of entrepreneurship, growth and success
Vic Ahmed, Founder, Innovation Pavilionenclosure-voice 1432_ 9/9/13 - It was 2011 and the Denver Post proclaimed, 'Colorado's new pavilion becomes a hub for tech innovation'. The Innovation Pavilion was the brainchild of serial entrepreneur Vic Ahmed, his belief, in an "ongoing shift from corporate America to a country of entrepreneurs". Here we have the product of over five years of global incubator research by founder Vic Ahmed, a serial entrepreneur, angel investor and startup visionary. Borrowing best practices from around the country to create an incubator model based on national best practices. As the shift continues, the Innovation Pavilion continues to morph in ways that accommodate the entrepreneurs who now call this 4 story, 80,000 sq ft building home. Today, Vic said that the Innovation Pavilion will be different next month and will continue to grow and change. "There's a groundswell for innovation and entrepreneurship in the country — large towns, small towns, everywhere", Ahmed said. "A wave is coming here, and this incubator will be one of the pieces that's going to help people get on this path of entrepreneurship and hopefully have a better chance of success than they might by themselves." Vic based part of the Innovation Pavilion on Silicon Valley's Plug and Play Tech Center, which features a community of more than 300 startups. In addition to the Innovation Pavilion, Vic is Chairman & Board Member of the Colorado Assoc. of Manufacturing and Technology; Chairman of TiE Rockies, Board Member TiE-Global Board of Trustees, Board Member of IT Economic Development Advisory Council for the Secretary of Technology, Colorado, and CEO of Business Genetics. We did say serial entrepreneur for more details...

Creating a really unfair advantage for startups
David Cohen, Founder/CEO, TechStarsenclosure-voice 1432_ 9/9/13 - TechStars' vision is a reality and they're often credited with being the biggest and best. David Cohen said, "That's awesome. But, we are unique in that we're not in Silicon Valley where all the action is, and we do have geographic distribution - so we look at that and ask, where do we go from here? It's really building this massive, interconnected network that gives these startups the advantage because as you know in business, it's really about the network. We have these really strong centers like in Boston, New York, Boulder, Seattle, Texas and now London. Those mentors and the alumni in New York not only helping those in New York, but also in Boulder. Play that out across the network and it's a very powerful concept. The network becomes a self-sustaining way to provide help to companies. Not just the mentorship and the funding. As an example we've got GoodApril and hope they will come back and make some angel investments. We think in ten years the idea of an entrepreneur walking in and pitching a venture capitalist for seed investment would just be silly - instead they'd rather join a network where they get help and the funding is built into that." David said, "Our mission is as it always has been, create unfair advantage for startups. You know, we win when they win and we think network is the big advantage."...Listen now to part 3 of 3...

Just 3 months into the life of the company and they got acquired
David Cohen, CEO/Founder, TechStarsenclosure-voice 1430_ 9/3/13 - [Part 2 of 3] The conversation with David Cohen (TechStars Founder/CEO) continues with what is happening at TechStars today and in the foreseeable future. We start with a new product, the major company branded TechStars program. It is a TechStars program in every sense with the added benefit of also being around that corporation. So taking Nike as an example, if you're building something in health or digital sport, you get the TechStars investment, you get the TechStars Mentor Network, but you also get the hands-on help from Nike and the potential to do business with them, gain distribution or possible investment, and M&A if things are amazing - But there is no obligation to do any of those things with that corporate partner. It's really a magic combination. In the seven years of operation, TechStars has funded around 250 companies and about 120+ per year now, so it's gotten up to speed and they've seen their 24th acquisition. A company called Good April, was presenting at DemoDay made an announcement - at DemoDay... so just 3 months into the life of the company, said 'we've been acquired by Intuit. That was a first, seeing a company being acquired, a positive outcome like that before the program was even over. Looking at what's coming down the road... Listen now to part 2 of 3...
