Many businesses are looking at global expansion

Todd fRoebken, Managing Director and 'Top Dog', Jones Lang LaSalle, Denver, Coloradoenclosure-voice 1409_ 7/22/13 - It is surprising to some just how many businesses are looking at global expansion. That can be a jolting, shocking and expensive experience with huge penalties if not done properly. We talked with Todd Roebken, managing director of Jones Lang LaSalle here in Denver. Their company roots go back to the 1800s in England and now is close to a $4 Billion dollar company, with 45,000 employees across the world. Todd and his group focus on helping companies find homes for their businesses, whether that's office or industrial manufacturing. Todd said, "We come in and through our process, leverage the marketplace and help companies get the best value out of that real estate with the most flexibility. And, we work with companies from early stage all the way through to large Fortune 100 companies here in Colorado. We do stuff for companies all over the world, whether it's a sales office in China or a manufacturing plant in China or something in India or south Colorado. We have resources, we have owned offices in all those markets and we come in and act as a single point of contact with the CFO, real estate director, CEO, whoever is overseeing that function and act as their real estate department." For Colorado companies looking at global expansion ...Listen for more details...

Jill (VanMatre) Dupré, Associate Director, ATLAS, University of Colorado Boulder Establish collaborative multidisciplinary partnerships and programs
enclosure-voice 1407_ 7/15/13 - Larry interviewed Jill (VanMatre) Dupré, Associate Director of the ATLAS Institute. The ATLAS Institute is an innovative campus-wide initiative in education, research, creative work and outreach in which information and communication technology is the enabling force. ATLAS programs bring together students, educators, artists, writers, scholars and leaders from the academy, industry, non-profits and government to create a multidisciplinary environment that contributes to the understanding of the interaction of ICT and human society, and to the realization of the full potential of that interaction. The ATLAS Institute is affiliated with the University of Colorado Graduate School and the College of Engineering & Applied Science. "ATLAS leads discovery and innovation at the intersection of technology and society. We seek to better understand the interaction of people and ICT, and to help realize the full potential of that interaction. ATLAS interdisciplinary programs help develop creative designers, critical thinkers, effective leaders, capable learners, innovative teachers and engaged global citizens. ATLAS teaches students a new way to think about what is possible, and to use the computer as a tool to realize fully that vision. ATLAS teaches students not how to acquire information, but rather how to select, evaluate, integrate and synthesize information into usable knowledge. ATLAS acts as a campus and national resource in the area of technology for teaching and learning."

Tim Bour, President, Boulder Innovation Center and Kate Tallman, Director, Tech Transfer, CU Boulder A valuable resource for commercializing
enclosure-voice 1324_ 7/15/13-12/12 Kate Tallman, Director of Tech Transfer for CU Boulder (Kate Tallman has been promoted to interim leader of the University of Colorado's Technology Transfer Office.) and Tim Bour, Executive Director, Boulder Innovation Center (BIC) discussed commercialization of innovative ideas and inventions as well as support offered entrepreneurs. (This is part 1 of a 2-part interview done in Jan 2010) Kate introduced him, "Tim's been with the Boulder Innovation Center for a little over 3 years, and he has built the program from one focus mainly on software and organics and natural into one that now works with all kinds and sectors of technology including clean tech and the biosciences space. So the BIC has become a valuable resource for commercializing university technology. Can you give us some background on what the BIC is?" Tim replied, "First of all, most traditionally, people think of the BIC as an incubator, but with some important differences. We're structured as a nonprofit, as a 501c6 nonprofit. We don't have any incubator space, we don't take any equity in our clients and we don't charge any success fees. This is different than many incubators you'd find around the country, but we find that it's really dealt well in terms of working with universities and it also does well in terms of growing jobs in the community, and that's one of our key outcomes. We currently have six market segments; we work in the area of clean tech which includes bio fuels, solar, software, building materials, anything that has a reduction in energy and efficiency in energy…there is much more and check out part 2, An opportunity for angel investors and startups: There are two elements of the financial picture.

Feld and Mendelson - How venture capital deals work
Brad Feld, Venture Deals, CoAuthor, enclosure-voice 11089_ 7/8/13-8/2011 - (Recorded 8/29/11) - When Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson sat down to write their book the goal was to aim it at every entrepreneur, to really help them understand how venture capital deals work. Brad Feld, in Tuscany, Italy talks with Larry Nelson via Skype to tell us about his newest book, "Venture Deals...Be smarter than your lawyer and venture capitalist". The inspiration for the book came from the Term Sheet Series that Jason and Brad wrote about five-six years ago. This is a particularly valuable book for entrepreneurs looking for money... You'll get an insider's view of the venture deal process, the different players involved on the deal side including how venture firms are setup. And, they talk about how an entrepreneur should think about the fund raising process. The term sheet is a very complicated document and there are a lot of things that people negotiate. But there are essentially only two things that matter which are economics and control. Here they've spent a lot of time helping the reader understand which terms related to economics and which terms were related to control and how and what that meant. It's meant to be a guide not a text book with material that can be very dry and boring. They've made fun of lawyers, venture capitalists and themselves along the way, but there goal was to...don't miss the rest of Brad's advice, listen now!

Pat & Larry Nelson, CoFounders, w3w3® Media Network - w3w3.com Change Is Not an Event, It Is an Ongoing Process (the Same with Chaos)
enclosure-voice 534_ 7/1/13 - Mastering change is one of Pat and Larry Nelson's favorite topics. There's a good reason. They have lived in and owned businesses in five foreign countries stretching from Norway to Australia. They are truly serial entrepreneurs as they have started more than a dozen companies. Some were extremely successful and others learning experiences. One thing that was true in every situation were the rushing changes. At times they were victims and others they were victors. Larry has conducted seminars for numerous companies both large and small, public and private sectors, in dozen countries, on the subject of 'Mastering Change in the Midst of Chaos'. In this recorded discussion Larry and Pat discuss the 'Six Truths About Change'. The topic includes; Resistance, Involvement, Making Losers, Vision, Benefits, and Follow up.

Matt Pardee, Chief Evangelist, StrongLoop Products, training and support for Apps
enclosure-voice 1403_ 7/1/13 - Back at the Glue Conference with 500 people in attendance, the booths and companies represented are fabulous. We're talking with Matt Pardee, Chief Evangelist for StrongLoop. Started five months ago, born out of the desire to have a commercial vendor to back Node.js, which is a burgeoning language that's growing in popularity - its javaScript on the server. Up until now there wasn't a company that commercially backed it for companies that were going into production with Node.js. Matt said, "We love Node.js, guys in our company helped build Node.js and so we thought let's put this together, let's provide some support avenues for companies that are going into production and let's ask them what they need and then build products round that - so that's what we do." StrongLoop creates products, training and support for Node.js, a relatively young coding language, about four years old. A lot of the companies that have adopted it have been more of the avant-garde companies that were willing to make the investment and had the developers to do that. Now you see traditional ecommerce companies and companies like GM and CBS Interactive, etc . starting to look at Node.js as a solution to the problem of connecting a lot of people to their servers at once to either power their games or mobile devices. It's really the language that's becoming backend to a lot of the new experiences that are happening in the 2000 apps. When we're talking about what the benefits are for companies moving into this mobile era, this is a really natural fit for companies that have this experience with java script on the client side...there's more...

Beth said, her first computer experience was in 1982, after finishing her 6th grade English assignment, she had an hour a day to work with an Apple 2, from January to June.

Later after university, while working with another journalist they realized that the future of the newspaper industry was going to change.

It was a way to carry on their commitment to communication and allow them to share stories of companies and organizations specifically on the Internet.

Les Haber takes us back to the founding days, in Florida in the late 80's - early 90s.

Les met a financial planner and expert on retirement and retirement incomes - he does seminars - and he said, you put people in a room for me to talk to and we'll give all the money to Front Range CAP - It 's for the kids of Colorado.

Garry Seaber, CEO and Founder, IT Liquidators The 3 secrets for protecting your company and the environment

enclosure-voice 1410_ 7/22/13 - About 60% of recycled technology / equipment ends up overseas in Ghana, Africa, India or China. What is appalling when you look at some of these photos... you can actually see the company's asset tags still on the equipment.
IT Liquidators help companies recycle ethically but we first focus on the re marketing, helping them get value out of the excess equipment. Garry Seaber, CEO and Founder, said, "We call this, ITS Management 2.0. This model is to, buy, use, de-install, and then secure your data. Once your data is secure, you want to look at either selling or reuse of the equipment through donation." IT Liquidators is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher, so they can reload the operating system and make that equipment reusable. There are three important steps: 1: To focus on removing the data on hard drives through data destruction. Garry's firm uses Department of Defense technology to wipe these drives. It's HIPPA compliant, and certified by the NSA - so there's no chance of any data being able to be recovered. 2: Focus on selling or reuse of a company's older technology. IT Liquidators buy re-marketable equipment from their clients, putting much needed cash back into IT budgets vs. paying a recycler to take it away. 3: Otherwise 50% of equipment does end up overseas affecting air, toxins killing people, long term, a lot is getting into the water supply. This third option...Listen for more options...

"What is Social Entrepreneurship?" Dr. Paul Bauer and Chris Pelley on Social Entrepreneurship
enclosure-voice 570_ 7/15/13-10/08_ Dr. Paul Bauer, Clinical Professor, Daniels College of Business, DU and Chris Pelley, Managing Director, Capital Investment Management Group discuss this social entrepreneurship with Larry. Paul explained, "For me, it goes back to the Entrepreneur part of the equation. Like Einstein said, We can’t solve the problems with the same thinking that we created them with." Entrepreneurship is a mechanism that will allow us to address and make some real progress with the challenges we face today. The ‘social’ part for me says what we’re trying to do is create value wealth for the community, not just for the individual. I think business does that and I think business has a definite role to play in that. That’s why I think this is a topic that is very relevant to business today." Chris went on from there, "I come from the business entrepreneurship side of the equation, and yet we see a common path, a parallel direction, in terms of solving many of the world’s problems, whether it’s through business enterprise or social enterprise. My interpretation of their definition of social entrepreneurs is, 1.) It’s people who are going to use creative thinking in solving any problem. 2.) The notion of using real business principals and business drivers for the best results is also an important issue. 3.) Sustainability." There's much more...listen now...

Dr. Arlen Meyers Percolated up to a national agenda item
enclosure-voice 1404_ 7/8/13 - He is involved with so much and he still has time to hear student concerns. We're talking to Dr. Arlen Meyers, about the CU Program of Bio Innovation and Entrepreneurship, basically a certificate program for graduate level, business, science, engineering, law, health professionals, who are interested in getting an idea to a patient. Dr. Meyers, and CU created the program because there was a gap in providing these students with the business skills needed to find a job. The NSF and the graduate school community has recognized the gap, and finally it's percolated up to a national agenda item. "So", says Arlen, "we have created a program to provide the knowledge, skills, abilities, experience and networks that these people need to interact with industry and get a job." It is Arlen's belief that entrepreneurs need four things to be successful: "They need education; they need experience, networks and they need money, We provide all four in the program." Listen for more about the program and the unique legal and regulatory environment for bio science and health innovation and entrepreneurship. It is probably the most regulated industry in the U.S. Arlen Meyers, MD, MBA, is a professor at the CU School of Medicine, Department of Otolaryngology and he is President/CEO of the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs.

Navin Thadani, SVP,Products, ravello systems Building better products and faster software with higher quality
enclosure-voice 1405_ 7/8/13 - For the past six weeks we've introduced you to some of the interesting folks we met at GlueCon 2013. Here now, meet Navin Thadani, SVP of products for Ravello Systems, an organization based in Palo Alto, California and Israel. This is their first time at Glue and it's been very good for them because they've been able to get the full, broad exposure to a variety of developers working on really interesting projects and technologies. From Ravello's perspective, that's really good because they try to provide the very best kind of development and test lab infrastructure possible. The idea being, developers replicate their applications into the Ravello system where they can create as many problems as they want for rapid development, prototyping and testing. Ravello is a company that is at the intersection of two fields of technology one being virtualization and the other cloud computing. They've built a set of infrastructure that allows them to enable enterprise developers to take their applications exactly as they are, and run that in any cloud - replicate their entire environment, make as many copies as they want and rapidly develop their features and test. Essentially it's about building better products, better software faster and with higher quality.

Treatment and prevention of brain damage
Greg Miknis, Matt Pink & Kim Heidenreichenclosure-voice 1402_ 7/1/13 - Here's another win with CUTTO. Dr. Kim Heidenreich, Professor of Pharmacology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado-School of Medicine, in collaboration with Dr. Greg Miknis and the team at the Colorado Center for Drug Discovery (C2D2) at CSU, have made great strides in developing novel therapies for the treatment and prevention of brain damage caused by traumatic brain injury (TBI). In 2007, Kim’s lab discovered that a very potent inflammatory mediator, normally not found in the central nervous system, is present in the brain after TBI. Kim discovered that if this inflammatory mediator is blocked, secondary injury to the brain and the deleterious effects of TBI can be prevented. Together, Kim and Greg have developed a novel series of compounds that can inhibit this inflammatory molecule. The project is now moving toward advanced pre clinical studies that if successful will bring the program one step closer to a clinically approved drug, benefiting victims of this growing unmet medical need. When Larry interviewed Kim and Greg which was arranged by Matt Pink, Licensing Manager for the Colorado University Tech Transfer Office many interesting and valuable points were discussed. You will learn about the incidence of TBI and concussion as well as appreciate why TBI is a major public health problem. This interview will hopefully provide HOPE for listeners who have experienced a TBI or health providers for TBI patients. There is increased nonfederal funding for TBI (GE and NFL gifts) that is focused on diagnosis of TBI via blood bio markers or neural imaging. This is great but we also need more funding for developing TBI treatments ...Listen for more...
