Alan Beaulieu, Principal, ITR Economics® Fiscal Reality from One of the country’s most informed economists
enclosure-voice 1486_ 1/13/14 - For a little shot of reality, we are talking with Alan Beaulieu during his annual economic forecast at the ACG Denver 2014 Opening Luncheon. (Note: We've interviewed Alan several times over the years - be sure to check out his view of the future then and now.) ITR Economics focuses on the U.S. and European economy with offices here and there. Today Alan is talking about fiscal reality, a refreshing look at life as it is. "We started with the Affordable Health Care Act. You may be hearing the administration saying because of Obama Care they have slowed down the rate of rise in healthcare - you'll be seeing headlines about that in numerous sources. Keep in mind that it is a very negligible change and the numbers they're citing are before the healthcare act really came into being, 2014 is the real year of the healthcare act. So the slowdown really has to do with the softness we had in the economy in 2013 than it does with anything else, just a normal part of the economy. We think the healthcare act could be a headwind for consumers if the administration is right and millions of healthy young individuals go to the exchange." One of the country’s most informed economists, Alan Beaulieu, is a principal of ITR Economics™ where he serves as President. He leads the company’s European office and serves as chief economist for numerous U.S. and European trade associations. He is co-author of Make Your Move, a book on profiting in business cycle changes, and is a contributing editor for Industry Week magazine...Listen for more...

The acquisition price was nearly $125 million
John Giacomoni, Sr software Architect enclosure-voice 1419_ 8/12/13 - A decade ago, John Giacomoni was working as a professional research assistant in the Software Engineering Research Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder when the group took on a problem they couldn’t afford to solve. The affordable solution he envisioned as a CU-Boulder research assistant became a reality with the help of former CU-Boulder Assistant Professor Manish Vachharajani, Senior Software Architect, F5 Networks, Inc.Manish Vachharajani. Convincing others would turn out to be the real problem. "Funding agencies and investors, except for a handful of Boulder angels, universally said, ‘No way; no how. You guys are crazy,’" Giacomoni remembered. The work finally began to pay off in late 2009, when LineRate got its first angel investor, a Boulder local, whose interest attracted other angel investors. Ultimately, they raised $575,000 in angel financing for the company, allowing Giacomoni and Vachharajani to hire seasoned networking developer Mark Terrel, create a production-ready product, and recruit experienced startup leader Steve Georgis to serve as chief executive officer, which in turn, attracted a second round of funding totaling $4.75 million. The pair went on to co-found a company based on the technology, LineRate Systems, which they sold earlier this year to F5 Networks. The acquisition price — nearly $125 million according to filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission — was the largest exit of a networking infrastructure company in the Boulder area in years. "John and Manish were incredibly persistent in going after their vision," CU-Boulder’s Tallman said. "They met with dozens of ...Listen for more...

Overcoming the shortage of top coder talent
enclosure-voice 1487_ 1/13/14 - Here at Galvanize, we're talking with Gary Gaessler of Gary Gaessler, Cloud Elements  & Sofia Stolberg, founder, Piloto 151Cloud Elements a cloud integration service, about a program addressing the shortage of talent in the technology community. Gary tells us, "We've extended an internship exchange program with our friends in Puerto Rico, who Gary met last summer at the Founder Institute, along with Sofia Stolberg, the founder of Piloto 151 a Galvanize-like incubator in Puerto Rico.
Antonio Tapia & Christian Rodriguez, Codetrotters, University of Puerto Rico
We actually have two top developers from the University of Puerto Rico joining Cloud Elements for fourteen days, Antonio Tapia and Christian Rodriguez." There is a need for this program, the idea of Cloud Elements CEO, Mark Geene, when Gary was in Puerto Rico this past summer. Sofia ran with the idea - she has actually launched a venture called 'Codetrotters'. Codetrotters is seeking to help startups like Cloud Elements hire top coder talent from under-tapped global talent pools, including Puerto Rico. "On a side note as well, we seek to develop underdeveloped entrepreneurship ecosystems and help strengthen them. So the exchange part of the program is that Cloud Elements has top interns / top coders coming into their company for a period of two weeks during the winter break and then again in the summer. In exchange for those interns, they give back to the ecosystem in Puerto Rico. In the end if Cloud Elements decides to hire the interns Piloto 151 does collect a recruitment fee, but it is 50% lower than the market standard. Part of that 50% discount is that they come back and give to our entrepreneurship ecosystem", Sofia said. . With the shortage of 'top coding talent'... listen to Gary, Sofia, Antonio and Christian for more insights...

John Mackey, Author, Conscious Capitalism, CEO and Cofounder, WholeFoods Market John Mackey Culture, Strategy and Conscious Capitalism
enclosure-voice 1368_ 3/25/13 - Larry and Patricia Nelson are here at the ACG Denver's 11th Annual, Rocky Mountain Corporate Growth Conference 2013 speaking with John Mackey, CEO and Cofounder of WholeFoods and co-author of Conscious Capitalism. At this year's conference we heard a lot of speakers talking about strategy - we asked John Mackey to give us his take on strategy. He responded, "My theory is that you have to first find your purpose for the business, why you exist. After that you have to ask, How do I create value for our customers? Ultimately it is value creation for the customers that leads the business to flourish. Then we ask the strategy questions. What strategy do we implement that allows us to follow purpose and allow us to create value for our customers and other stakeholders? READ MORE
