Tim Falls, Director, Developer Relations, SendGrid Colorado company growing rapidly and spreading globally
enclosure-voice 1467_ 11/25/13 - It has been a busy time, but we are back at DefragCon 2013 with Tim Falls, director of developer relations at SendGrid, a Colorado company growing rapidly and spreading globally, that enables companies to more effectively communicate with their customers via email. They do that by providing tools for both developers and marketers to send emails to their customers. So they have both a technical and non technical audience - providing tools to both. And they do this on a very large scale, closing in on 200 billion emails sent - just in this past October they sent 10 billion emails. Interestingly, the majority of their customers are startups - anywhere from one or two developers building out a prototype of an application to companies of 5 or 10 all the way up to big companies with thousands of employees, and they work with companies across all sectors, tech web companies are probably the biggest, but they have political campaigns, universities, non-profits. Tim came to Boulder five years ago - he knew he wanted to get involved with entrepreneurship - startups, and TechStars was his introduction to that. He worked as an intern there and met SendGrid ...listen for more...

Identify, Integrate Valuable Data Across Multiple Systems
Steve Dine, Founder, Managing Partner, Datasource Consultingenclosure-voice 1464_ 11/18/13 - We met Steve Dine, managing partner/founder of Datasource Consulting toward the end of October. In the first part of this interview with Steve we talked about how Datasource actually helps companies large and small, identify their data and to integrate that data across multiple systems. You can go back to that first interview - Click HERE
Getting the most out of your data means identifying where the value is, business intelligence initiatives are earned investments and so as companies decide where they're going to invest their money they need to determine what the return on that is going to be. Part of making that determination is understanding where you will get the biggest bang from a buck. So you identify the value, identify who the analysts are and where you can analyze within your organization, who your constituencies are, most often they are internal. But in the financial services industries all their customers are external. Steve's first great success in IT and business intelligence came about when he was working in Boulder, in finance and he was given the opportunity to work with a big manufacturing company who understood the value of BI...listen for more...

Michael Hess, Founder, Blind Institute  of Technology Attack a problem in a completely unique and multi sensory way
enclosure-voice 1468_ 11/25/13 - He is a self described IT nerd and is visually impaired. He says, being a blind technical professional, he has learned how to use certain tips, tricks and technologies to overcome the visual obstacles. Michael Hess is the founder of Blind Institute of Technology (BIT) He started BIT with one mission in mind, and that is to bridge the gap between the Visually Impaired Community and the corporate environment. . He's come to appreciate the proverbial blinders he's had to wear, have really helped to make it so much easier to focus on the content than his sighted peers - especially when you're requirements gathering. To highlight, Gartner has the statistics that quantify this - 80% of all IT and Network projects are either not on time, on budget or delivered at all. There is this breakdown that takes place. But in Mike's case, his projects have always met those requirements and he's realized his 'blinders' really are an asset. Based on this, Mike has developed a Team Building program and what he is doing is taking teams in technology organizations and putting them under blindfolds and having them produce tasks. His firm has developed different exercises for each sightless principle. Communication doesn't have to be complex but it has to be clear. Sometimes we need to attack a problem in a completely unique and multi sensory way. And the lost art of collaboration ...listen for more...

Innovation is stagnant now in the medical device arena
Mike Biselli, CMO and CoFounder, MedPassageenclosure-voice 1469_ 11/25/13 - We are talking with Mike Biselli, Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of MedPassage. At the very highest level, MedPassage is your 'Amazon.com' specifically built and engineered for the medical device implant industry. As you know, in our country right now, we are going through significant change in healthcare. With that said, Mike and his cofounder have spent 20+ years of direct experience in the medical device industry and they are leveraging that tribal knowledge into purposing and then creating a platform that will help disinter mediate and create more efficiencies within the implant space. Mike said, "As you know we need a reduced cost on all fronts within healthcare and it is our objective and our motive to see that through within the medical device implant space." MedPassage has noticed that innovation is stagnant now in the medical device arena... so we're going to have these technologies that we've been using for the last 10-20 years continue to dominate for the next 5-15 years if this market corrects. The point is why do we continue to march down the road where we have a sales distributor involved with these products that doctors know like the back of their hand? There's more...

We first came into this ecosystem back in 2012
Mike Biselli, CMO, MedPassage with Chris Onan, Managing Director, Galvanizeenclosure-voice 1463_ 11/18/13 - We are talking with Chris Onan, Co-founder and Managing Director Galvanize, and Mike Biselli, Chief Marketing Officer of MedPassage who has an office suite here at Galvanize, actually one of the first ten clients. Galvanize was built to be a tech ecosystem. So, that is a community of tech companies working in and around one another. We wanted to do that because there is a ton of great tech activity here in Denver. At least in this neck of the woods there wasn't any nexus for great tech companies. Mike Biselli said, "It's been an evolution for our organization, the benefits that Galvanize continually brings to us. When we first came into the ecosystem back in 2012, the first and foremost benefit for us was being around other like minded entrepreneurs. Seeing others going through the same pain problems that you are and not feeling like you're the only one going through those..." Mike said, "that was the first evolution followed by the second - being introduced by folks like Chris and the other founders here at Galvanize and other entrepreneurs... Going back to the capital, had we not been part of Galvanize, we wouldn't have secured part of our funding that just occurred recently. We literally received a six figure plus round of capital because we were based out of Galvanize", said Mike. This huge entrepreneur knowledge share is terrific...

All eyes and ears on Brad and Jerry as they share their entreprenurial challenges... The stigma and practice of social silence
surrounding mental health issues prevents many from accessing or even seeking help for what science has long recognized as a common ailment. Depression affects approximately one in every three people, and yet we continue to struggle in our efforts to penetrate the wall behind which many of society's brightest minds suffered in silence. Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein Full house!and astronaut Edwin 'Buz' Aldrin all suffered from clinical depression masked by the carefully chosen monikers of melancholy or the blues.

Larry and Brad Feld at Defrag 2013 Everyone of us experiences
short periods of sadness, loneliness or depression; each of these normal emotions in the course of one's life that arise from troubling times, challenges, loss or the hurtful actions of others. True clinical depression, however, often results in a pervading and deep sense of depression that permeates all aspects of life, which often become overwhelming, and cause the sufferer to experience an inability to cope with or carry out regular activities of daily living, and negatively impact the individual's ability to participate in quality, active life events. Depressive symptoms vary significantly from one individual to the next, but common and recognizable symptoms may include a generalized sense of hopelessness, loss of interest in activities previously found pleasurable, and a generalized sense of sadness and loss that overshadows everything. Join Brad in his efforts to achieve the seemingly impossible and ever important struggle to break the shroud of silence surrounding depression. Listen to all three segments of Brad Feld and Jerry Colonna's open and frank discussion of the emotional challenges of entrepreneurism.

Defrag Conference 2013
WHAT IS DEFRAG? Defrag started in 2007 as a forum for exploring information overload and building implicit tools for the web.

As Defrag entered its 5th year, it firmly established itself as one of the premiere thought leader discussions about "what's coming next" in technology, where Defrag's time horizon is usually looking out 18-24 months. Defrag is now where the influencers gather.
