Paul Bauer, College of Business, DUDouglas Dixon, President, University Hills Rotary Club How do we make the Denver Metro Area and the World a better place...
enclosure-voice 1449_ 10/7/2013 -
Paul Bauer is a clinical professor of information technology and electronic commerce for the Daniels College of Business. A long time associate and friend, he asked Larry Nelson to speak at the University Hills Rotary Club. Of
Larry Nelson, Founder, Managing Director, w3w3® Media Networkcourse Larry accepted, [he does love to talk...] Larry was so impressed with the audience and their focus, what they're doing, he was happy for the chance to talk with Doug Dixon, president of this, the University Hills Rotary Club. "Service above self, is the motto of Rotary." Doug tells us in this particular club their service goes in a number of areas but their primary project is what they call the Hobson Fund - it's a scholarship fund, providing scholarships - not a full ride, but they're pretty significant - to students who are majoring in math and hard sciences. One student in particular, majoring in math and Spanish (she wants to be a math teacher) will take her skills into lower income neighborhoods. Another student, Sara at the University of Denver, has actually had time with the Hubble Space Telescope. Larry asked, "What are the types of people that you would like to recruit and have come to your meetings?" Doug said, "Anybody that has an interest in making the community better. It used to be that Rotary wouldn't accept people under a certain age, that's not true now, we don't care. One of our members, Nathan, he's 27 and one of the most active members. We have a pretty broad spectrum of people in business, but we're all focused on, how do we make the Denver Metro Area and the world a better place. That's what we care about." There's more...

Will they find you or your competition
Ray Hutchins, Denver SEO Services, President, TiE Rockiesenclosure-voice 1451_ 10/7/2013 - We have been hearing a great deal about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as organizations are trying to figure out how to get more individuals and organizations to visit their website and buy more. The 'World Wide Web' offers many opportunities as well as challenges. Larry called Ray Hutchins (a hands-on expert in SEO) to give us another view on Search Engine Optimization because it continues to morph and is becoming a very complex, hard to fathom piece of our Internet business strategy. Making it to the first page of the search engines when you are operating in a competitive keyword environment is not easy. It takes SEO experience, business experience, persistence, and time - and in many ways, it's more of an art than a science. To succeed, a business owner needs an SEO company that knows how to: Identify and target the right keywords; Structure and organize your website so it best accommodates the search engines; Build the right link program for your business needs; Stay on top of the constantly evolving SEO processes, strategies and procedures and make sure YOU stay on top! Ray also brings something else to the table. He owns a Web Development company, Denver Web Services. Ray says, "No use doing a great SEO campaign and getting a customer to visit a site that won't convert them into a sale. Your business needs a site that builds trust and converts leads into sales. But if you are like most business owners, you just cannot afford to spend a fortune to make this happen. ...Listen for more, this is part 1 of 2...

Maker or Hacker spaces are springing up
Elizabeth Weiland, Executive Director of Making Progressenclosure-voice 1445_ 9/30/13 - The Maker Movement is sweeping the United States and the world. Maker or Hacker spaces are springing up for innovators and entrepreneurs across Colorado – several in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Longmont and more. Schools are setting up Maker spaces and Maker Faires are springing up to celebrate making. Come and learn about what this movement is about and how it affects everything from schools to businesses. (See examples on our home page)… Larry interviewed Elizabeth Weiland, Executive Director of Making Progress, L3c producer for Colorado's first Maker Faire, the NoCo Mini Maker Faire, to be held October 5th. Larry asked, "What can we expect from the NoCo Maker Faire? Elizabeth replied, "Oh so many things. We’ve filled over 100,000 sq feet with all kinds of Maker creations. From a statewide youth robotics scrimmage to an Innovation and Entrepreneurship Exhibition, a 29 second film festival to a Nerdy Derby, an atomic clock made out of pinball machines to a sound puddle. Advances in 3D printing, arduino electronics and other technologies have removed the “valley of death” between creativity to production. Kids, artists and innovators can bring their designs to life. Maker Faires bring together all the elements of creativity, design, prototyping and production to make those AHA, I can DO THIS moments that make innovation possible."

Vic Ahmed, Chairman, TiE Rockies We leverage the organization to support your business growth
enclosure-voice 1447_ 9/30/13 - Larry's talking with long-time friends Ray Hutchins and Vic Ahmed, president and Ray Hutchins, President, TiE Rockieschairman of TiE Rockies, a chapter of TiE Global. That's one of 64 chapters in 18 countries with over 13,000 members, and its primary mission is to support the entrepreneur, and that's what they do. Ray says they do this through mentoring, networking, education, making introductions for people, helping them find money, helping them to gain access to other organizations in the area and creating job growth right here in Colorado. In the beginning Larry attended the first TiE Rockies meeting, back then they were held monthly, a lot has changed. A very exciting thing for Vic, he recently joined the TiE Board of Trustees, and they are looking at launching some new programs like an education program with Stanford and other universities, a special program around TiE doctors and also looking at a TiE incubator. The organization has grown so large and complex and they are helping so many people accomplish their business objectives and dreams, that it takes the efforts of both Ray as President and Vic as Chairman working together more like co-presidents. They've worked together for some years - both are volunteers and the organization has one paid staff member, their executive director. Vic tells us they have a stellar board with Balan Nair - CTO, Liberty Global; Sureel Choksi is currently Managing Partner of BC Consulting, John Kelley previously CEO, McData which he sold for $1 Billion; Dr. Arlen Meyers is a professor of otolaryngology, dentistry, and engineering at the University of Colorado Denver; Carol Kline served as Chief Information Officer and Executive Vice President of Teletech; Sam Kumar, founder and Owner of Microtech-Tel...

Huge asset to entrepreneurs here in Colorado
Chris Onan, Managing Director, Galvanizeenclosure-voice 1448_ 10/7/2013 - We are talking with Chris Onan, Managing Director of Galvanize, and he's been a venture capitalist and strategy consultant for years. There is so much happening in the marketplace, high tech and everything else, we asked Chris for an overview of what he sees happening. He said one of the exciting things for Colorado is that milennials are moving here in greater numbers than to any city in the country, and that's not per capita, that's aggregate. There are a number of reasons, it's a beautiful place to live, centrally located, we have a major airport. It's relatively cost effective to start a business here, the tax rates are lower and you've got a mid-western ethos where you can get a cup of coffee with just about anyone. Guys like David Cohen and Brad Feld and Steve Halstead will give you a cup of coffee. It doesn't happen in Silicon Valley or New York - and it's a huge asset to entrepreneurs that are here in Colorado. TechStars, literally taking over the world recently opening in London and beyond, headquartered here - all together, it's just drawn a ton of entrepreneurial activity and attention here. And Galvanize, we're kind of drafting on that and we fit right in to the broader trend in Colorado, becoming a very prominent place for entrepreneurial and tech activity. One of the challenges talked about for this area is getting a big company to headquarter here. Chris doesn't agree, saying...

Word-of-Mouth Recommendations, In or Out
Justin Sanger, CEO/Founder, Support Localenclosure-voice 1450_ 10/7/2013 - Larry interviewed Justin Sanger, CEO & Founder of SupportLocal at Galvanize. Justin has seen and done many things in his career, but throughout, his focus has been on local advertising and local search solutions for consumers in the Internet space. He's started four companies, in the local arena, the last was Local Launch, an award winning local search platform for small and medium size businesses. They sold over 200,000 products to small businesses, generated over half-a-billion dollars in revenue and ultimately sold that company in 2006 to R.H. Donnelly and Dex. Today, Justin is more excited than ever about their initiative called, SupportLocal. Put simply, it is a place for friends to recommend local businesses. We're all familiar with word-of-mouth and in fact, people point to it as the leading source for finding new businesses. At the same time businesses point to it as their leading source for new clients / customers. So it is something we're all very accustomed to in our offline world. Today the interesting thing is that only 7% of word-of-mouth activity actually happens online. SupportLocal is trying to solve for this problem and opportunity. Larry asked, "There are search engines out there like Goggle, of course. What is the major difference between what you're doing and them?" Justin said, Yes, great question. Google, Yelp, Facebook, Angie's List, and there are other significant examples out there. The main difference is we're about a network of just your friends. We're talking about your friends within a particular locality. The city you live in and the people you interact with every day, and making it efficient for you to be able to find things to do in your community or to solve for a need that you may have - within your community at any given time. Facebook, Angie's List, Yelp, they do not have those factors within their networks. For one, like Yelp, you're consuming reviews from people you just don't know. If you breakdown 'word-of-mouth' ...Listen for more...

Billions of dollars to help higher education
Karan Khemka, Partner and Head of The Parthenon Group Asiaenclosure-voice 1444_ 9/30/13 - Larry and Pat were invited to an up-scale event at the Innovation Pavilion by Christopher Pelley, CEO and Private Wealth Advisor of CIMCO Cares. After the eye-opening meeting, they had a chance to interview the keynote speaker, Karan Khemka, Partner, The Parthenon Group, which is a management consultancy - but a big part of their work is in the education sector. Education institutions, whether it's Harvard University or a private school, in the end they function like companies. Larry asked about the U.S. comparison to other countries. Karan tells us, in the U.S. 4% of college/university students are international students, compared to the U.K. which is at 17% and Australia at 28%. This begs the question, why would the U.S. say that this is the correct or acceptable penetration of international students when the U.K. and Australia have maintained very high quality higher education systems with far higher levels of international student penetration. If the U.S. were to double the international student population to 8% that would be an additional 700,000 students, and not all of these would be full fee paying, but let's say half-a-million were full fee paying, and they were coming in at $25-$30,000 a student - that is an incredible amount of revenue - billions of dollars to help balance the books of higher education. To put money into research, funding and scholarships. So there is an incredible opportunity to do good while serving international demand for one of the most desirable products the U.S. has. Your higher education is really the crown jewel amongst the products you can sell to the rest of the world. Listen for much more...

Bill Van Orsdel, Co-Founder & CMO, WaveCloud. All about ePublishing with Larry Nelson, w3w3® Media Network ... steps to take and things to know PART 2 of 2
enclosure-voice 1446_ 9/30/13 - Larry is back with Bill Van Orsdel and discussing ePublishing. Bill and his company WaveCloud, talk to a lot of authors, and if you are thinking of writing a book, it's helpful if you have a sense for ... steps to take and things to know. (Check Out Part 1) Larry has published a few books and the last is available digitally - still we learned there are more changes and a lot to be aware of, to have a successful release. Bill explains, before you actually write the first word on your book, there are a couple of things you should do or know before you get there. The first thing is you need to understand who is your target audience. Who are you writing this book for? Target; you need to understand, is my book for people who play tennis? Is my book for people who play tennis left handed? Is my book for people who play tennis left handed on grass? You've got to understand, before you start writing, who your target audience is. The second thing you have to know is the genre or the subject area that you're going to write? Are you writing a science fiction or a how to? The point is you need to understand where in the bookstore your book should appear when it's taken out of the box and put up on the shelf. The next thing Bill would ask you is, to go to the bookstore and go to that genre, that subject area and look at that shelf. And step three is know your competition. There's much more advice, listen now...
