Raising money and helping people with big challenges 1484_ 12/30/13 - CereScan has become a center of excellence for looking at functional brain injury, how people's brains are performing or not, and working with companies that potentially have solutions or remedies for some of those problems", said John Kelley, Chairman of the Board and CEO. John and Rick Fort, president and COO of CereScan are very excited about this. It has opened a lot of doors around the country, to some of the most innovative therapies. At the same time, creating opportunities for CereScan's expansion outside of Colorado. Of course, CereScan is on the assessment side, not a therapy company and that allows them to work as an independent, objective resource for those therapy companies as they do research. CereScan has established their first clinic in Naples, Florida, enabling a Nuclear Medicine facility to be able to do brain imaging. John pointed out that at its core, CereScan is a measurement company, so their partnering, being part of a team, they're really trying to solve some of the most complex brain disorders that people are experiencing today. That's a real opportunity for us to move, to collaborate, perhaps even locate where those therapeutic companies are. John explains, "There is a very well known non-profit in California, the Tug McGraw Foundation. Their plank is to help use donated monies to address certain brain problems. CereScan is one of the few entities that they have teamed up with. For our listeners, people like us that do charitable things in the community, something that is really helpful, that we've been able to, across the country, is to have people donate money to the Tug McGraw Foundation and Visible Brain Injury Project..."

It can mean new business models around healthcare 1480_ 12/16/13 - We are back with Kate Tallman, Interim Associate Vice President of Technology Transfer Office, University of Colorado. Now at the system level for the first time, Kate tells us she has a great opportunity to understand what's going on at CU Denver and the medical campus in particular. It's very interesting to learn about healthcare innovations and all the research they have going on there. It's a new area, but an old area for Kate. She started her career doing financial analysis of hospitals and healthcare. So, she says, "I'm coming full circle now in seeing the business of healthcare. There was a wonderful conference put on by Silicon Flatirons Center called, 'The Future of Healthcare Innovation'." Kate said "investors are now getting very interested in healthcare services. This can mean a lot of things. It can mean new business models around healthcare. Providers can optimize the care they deliver to patients. A lot of information technology was patient's data - all of these areas are becoming increasingly valuable as we move into the era of healthcare reform. As this gets implemented healthcare systems are going to need to demonstrate that they can deliver quality outcomes for patients. This is an untapped opportunity because..." listen for more...

The key is making your application more functional
1476_ 12/9/13 -
Recently we spoke to Mark Geene, CEO and co-founder of Cloud-Elements. He said, "We are very excited about the big opportunity, integrating cloud services together, allowing companies to focus on building their core unique functionalities - something they were excited about building vs. all the plumbing and connecting cloud services together. We are an API [Application Programming Interfaces] management services company. API's are used to stitch application interfaces together and essentially Cloud-Elements provide a unique way of integrating lots of cloud services into our client's applications. So if they need to connect to document services they could write to one API and connect to all those leading document services. Same thing for CRM, customer service, payment services, etc., and do that at a fraction of the cost and time that it would take to custom develop." Their primary customers are startups and S&B services although they do have some larger enterprises working with them, (Dropbox, ViaWest, Photobucket...) but the main target is...

Financial capital, angel investors, institutional venture capitalists
1472_ 12/2/13 -
With a 16 year career - and a lot of startup, building and exiting experience, Jim Deters, the founder / managing director of Galvanize wanted to build a platform that basically solved a lot of the problems he had encountered when building his own companies. The problems really revolved around three things, having a flexible workspace and having like minded people around, it was having and finding more human capital - more software engineers, more great talent to add to his team and of course, finding the financial capital, angel investors or institutional venture capitalists to invest in a new company. So basically, Jim said, "We put all of those under one roof here at Galvanize to coalesce with ecosystems on those three big problems." Summarizing, the three big C's, as they say at Galvanize, are Community, Capital and Curriculum... oh, and they've added Coffee to that list. Larry asked, "How do you recruit companies for this space?" So they opened October 22, 2012 - moved in with 17 companies and from that nucleus they now have about 150 companies... listen for more...

A mobile application for
social event planning
1474_ 12/2/13 -
My Hub is a mobile application for social event planning. The premise is essentially on a daily basis, when we get our friends together, we spend a lot of time doing group text messages, emails, a lot of phone calls and you're constantly on your device trying to coordinate with friends. So we look at that and we see a pretty big opportunity where that whole process can be flushed out and a little more efficient and we can bring almost more creativity to it. With My Hub, the app, allows people to create events very quickly - as well as fund those events through a couple of different ways - and ultimately invite their friends to get people together for fun adventures in the mountains or outside, etc. And, it can be used to plan anything from your next activity to this weekend or something a month in advance. As part of the application you can see what your friends are doing as well as plan your own events. The neat thing about it is I can potentially go into the app and see what my friends are doing across the country in New York or locate...

Exciting work underway for TBI, Alzheimer's... 1481_ 12/16/13 - We last interviewed Rick Fort, at TiE Rockies following a presentation by John Kelley about CereScan, that was about a year ago. CereScan is a brain imaging company that uses advanced technologies to provide evaluative information for a variety of different neurological disorders and neuro-psychiatric disorders. For example when CereScan does a scan of a person's brain; the scan will show things like evidence of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other kinds of dementia. The scan will show evidence of traumatic brain injuries and toxic brain injuries. On the neuro-psychiatric side they can see evidence of ADHD and ADD, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, a variety of different disorders that people experience, and when you think about it, all of these disorders begin in the brain, and that is what CereScan does. Larry asked Rick who is now the President and COO of CereScan about who might use this technology and Rick told us, elderly people having memory problems or feel like they're not solving problems as well as they used to may want to come in to see if there is anything going on. CereScan is in the middle of launching a study to work with veterans who have been exposed to numerous concussive events. The study will look at a specific treatment for TBI, [Traumatic Brain Injury]. The symptoms of TBI are varied. We are also looking at a study of Alzheimer's patients. CereScan will do a pre-treatment scan and then a post treatment scan. What our scans are measuring are organic changes in the brain, following treatment. Essentially... listen for more.

They had the artistic talent but lacked the technology talent
1473_ 12/2/13 -
Jenna Walker, her sister and husband, all professional photographers and artists in their own right, came to Galvanize last July to start their business, Artifact Uprising. Now they had the artistic talent but lacked the technology talent and startup knowledge necessary to make their dream a reality. They've created Artifact Uprising to bring back the beauty of the tangible. Jenna said, "We live in this amazing digital world, our camera phones are awesome but we all feel we want to leave things behind that are tangible for our families and for ourselves." So they were inspired to start a company where people could go and design beautiful high quality things of their photos and leave them behind for generations to come, in a more tangible form. We asked about the challenges facing new entrepreneurs. Initially it wasn't so challenging because, "We didn't know what we didn't know." Keeping up with the growth of the company has been hard because there are so many things they needed to accomplish that they weren't aware of... Listen for more...
