The 2002 CTEK e-Ball proved to be "Event of the Year"
Lu Cordova, 2002 President CTEK @ Inaugural CTEK eBall1535_ 4/28/14 - - It was 2002... and the Good News is that there will be another November 1, 2003 at the Renaissance Hotel - Interlocken! We're talking about the CTEK Entrepreneurs Ball and it's too bad if you weren't there. However, here's the next best thing, Lu Cordova and her CTEK team created a scene that fed the starving west. Being there was more fun than we've had in a long time. (Photos from last year below!) We asked what should you wear - now we'll see who was there and what they wore! Come back often, with over 200 photos we'll be adding and changing the view - again and again-frequently. The Omni was packed and spilling beautiful people all over. It was fun, it was exciting - the food was great - that sound system from Bang & Olufsen was outstanding... and I want one. We wore name tags (which was nice) but it definitely had the glamour and ambiance of a 'ball' !

Social entrepreneurship to empower destitute women
Connie Duckworth, Social Enterprise Event 2012 - Sponsored by CIMCO Caresenclosure-voice 1535_ 4/28/14 - It was 2012... Social entrepreneur Connie Duckworth founded ARZU, (which means “hope” in Dari), in 2004, to empower destitute women weavers in rural Afghanistan. Connie serves pro bono as Chairman and CEO. Starting with 30 weavers, ARZU has transformed into a learning laboratory for holistic grassroots economic development —today employing some 700 women, providing access to education and basic healthcare, seeding multiple micro-business start-ups, building community centers, pre-schools and parks, and creating award-winning fair-labor rugs—all in a country ranked as “the world’s worst place to be a woman.” Ms. Duckworth retired in 2001 as a Partner and Managing Director of Goldman Sachs, the first woman to be named a sales and trading partner in the firm’s history. She tells us she really wanted to re balance how she spent her time. So she envisioned 1/3 business activities, 1/3 philanthropic activities and 1/3 family oriented activities. ARZU became the focus of her philanthropy.

Intense infatuation with natural building methodologies
enclosure-voice 1536_ 4/21/14 - We are visiting with Cody Farmer of MainStream Cody Farmer, Partner, MainStream CorporationCorporation a performance-driven green building firm. We've known and followed Cody and his partner Lisa Farmer for several years now and are very impressed with what they're doing. Imagine if you will, living off the grid... It all started with an intense infatuation with natural building methodologies and real estate investing. They thought that a person could build sustainably with nature and experience freedom off any grid, superior indoor environmental quality (IEQ), and extreme comfort. "We then learned the science and methodology of Passivhaus, which challenged every building principle we thought we knew. Our sights are now set on helping others accomplish their visions where architecture meets science to produce extreme performance, comfort, and health." They invested a lot of money into education and traveling and touring houses and buildings that were performing and they became certified Passive House Consultants and Designers. MainStream then put up a proof-of-concept building in Broomfield, one of three known private buildings in the United States. Four years ago Cody and Lisa added another dimension to MainStream and began doing 'Performance Building Design', material specification and energy models. Building from the ground up, or maybe a city building that's not performing, or a home that needs to be remodeled, even a brand new building - the first thing MainStream does is 'engineer out the losses of the system'. So, whether that's a wall system, windows, a ventilation system or insulation issues, air tightness issues, the first step is always to study the building... MainStream has developed the package, putting everything together to create performance, comfort, health and efficiency all in one whack. Listen for more details...

Mantra for Venture Capitalists Today + Mobius VC Tips
Brad Feld back in 20041535_ 4/28/14_ It was 2004... Brad Feld, managing director of Mobius Venture Capital identifies what VCs are looking at today…including exit strategies, hot markets, checklist of the VC’s mantra, what Mobius VC is focused on today as well as essentials for the first-time entrepreneur who is building a new company. Everything is changing. All the rules are changing…or are they? SOFTBANK Venture Capital is now Mobius Venture Capital (And today it’s the Foundry Group). Brad Feld has cut his hair (unlike Samson, he has not lost his strength). Are these changes symbolic, superficial or just a sign of our changing times? Leadership in changing times has been elusive to many organizations…great leadership that is. Some say leaders have learned from their experience. We’ve heard people proudly point out they have 18 years experience…in truth, they’ve had one experience 18 times. Yes, leaders do learn from experience, but it’s the distillation of all the good and challenging events that makes the difference. Brad’s mother and father had a great impact on him…personally and professionally. Along the way in the business world (starting at age 15 in Brad’s case) there were others that also influenced his beliefs and values. He learned from some tough lessons as well as from his successes. Brad shares some of his "learning experiences" in this provocative interview.

Be focused on really being good at what you do
enclosure-voice 1535_ 4/21/14 - Ward Cerny, Vice President, Bernstein Global Wealth ManagementSince the 60s, Bernstein a New York based fund, has been built solely on research based investment management. That singular focus has led them to become one of the biggest companies and one of the biggest public firms in that arena. We're talking with Ward Cerny, Vice President, Bernstein Global Wealth Management and he said, "We've just focused on really being good at what we do and not all the other things that cause conflicts to our investment management clients, such as lending, mergers and acquisitions, having a proprietary trading desk. We just want to focus on ensuring the best outcome for our clients, the fiduciary, and that's what we do." For Ward's part, he is an advisor to individuals, foundations and endowments and in his niche of specialty is "helping business owners, in particular, plan out how their companies and transactions in relation to their companies, is going to benefit them. Transactions like selling a majority or the entirety of their company or buying another company, how is that going to affect them personally? How is it going to affect their goals and help them achieve what they want to get out of their professional lives?" That is quite a tall order. Ward said, "Another hurdle to overcome is most entrepreneurs feel very comfortable taking a ton of risk and having all their eggs in the business basket - just trying to get them to diversify so that their financial future is a lot more secure."

Creating a greater presence with marketing
enclosure-voice 1537_ 4/21/14 - While at the Rocky Mtn. Corporate Growth Rob Gower, Marketing Director, AdvodaConference, we had an opportunity to sit down with Rob Gower, marketing director at Advoda. Rob tells us that Advoda is a very unique company in that it's been around for 12 years, a completely debt free company and doing very well. This company has grown to the size it has, with the reputation it has and we are very well known within the industry and very well liked. This was accomplished without marketing, quite a testament to a full service IT and telecommunications master agency. Lots of people assume, when you talk about IT or telecom that you have a very specific product which you provide. The difference with Advoda is they work with over 50 carriers and service providers and take a consultative approach to evaluate the service requirements and align them with carrier offerings and present the ideal solution available in the marketplace. They find the best fit for you. For example if company A provides the best cable service and company B provides the best cloud service, that's what Advoda is going to give you rather than just going with one or the other. Rob proudly offers, "the best value proposition we offer is you can actually speak directly to us" no automated answering - and they do all the project management. So instead of just providing the service and passing it on, they own it and...there's more...
