Are you protecting your Research and Development investment of time, money, and effort? That's the topic of today's episode. If you're like many technology companies, your team creates valuable inventions that provide a competitive advantage, attract investors, and increase company valuation. You can protect those R&D activities by building a patent portfolio that protects your critical inventions. Patents protect the inventions produced by your R&D activities. A well-designed patent portfolio is a carefully chosen collection of patent assets that support your business goals and objectives. Failing to protect your most valuable inventions with a patent portfolio means that your R&D team is working for your competitors. Without patent protection for your critical inventions, your competitors are free to use your inventions to compete against you without having to invest any time, money, or resources. Don't let this happen to your tech company. Use this 3-Step Strategy to build or expand your valuable patent portfolio: 1. Identify all of your company's inventions 2. Evaluate and prioritize your inventions using evaluation criteria related to company goals 3. Protect the most valuable inventions to continue strengthening your patent portfolio “By carefully evaluating your inventions with respect to your company goals and objectives, you are designing a valuable patent portfolio that protects your critical assets.” – Steve Sponseller Questions?

It's not often we hear of a local start-up raising big money from outside the state, but that is what has happened with our next guest's socially-minded e-commerce company, which has received $750,000 so far this year, most of which has come from a Cleveland-based venture capital firm. Mike Switzer interviews Jeff Spencer, CEO and co-founder of Playfora, in the Boyd Innovation Center in Columbia, S.C.
In 2022, women of color received just .8% of venture capital funding. Today's guest is one of those .8%, raising $3M in 2022 in venture capital from strong investors including Serena William's VC fund, Serena Ventures.Barbara Jones-Brown has never been a stranger to defying the odds. When Barbara graduated from the University of Texas in 1998 she was one of only four black computer science graduates. She would go on to be the Lead Technical Developer at 360 Commerce which was later acquired by Oracle and served as the launch of Oracle's retail division.Bit by the entrepreneurial bug, post acquisition Barbara would launch a consulting business that would continue to grow and allow her to create job opportunities for marginalized groups. But Barbara had always known one day she would build her own product company. Then a seemingly serendipitous hackathon would birth the idea that would one day become Freeing Returns. Then in 2020, a global pandemic went from nearly destroying her successful consulting business to being the forced change that would accelerate the launch of Freeing Returns.This is a powerful conversation in which we discuss Barbara's journey, her strength in building high performing teams, and learning the importance of when to listen to advice and when to ignore. I can't wait for you to meet this amazing woman. Enjoy!Show Notes:Connect or Follow Barbara on LinkedInLearn more about Freeing Returns

Timing is everything along with finding a gap in the market! Before 2016 not much work was going into real-time tracking and forecasting of clouds using satellite data. But a professional meteorologist from Down Under found his niche utilizing a game-changing global fleet of Japanese weather satellites to track cloud movement, weather patterns, and aerosols that affect albedo and solar irradiance impacting solar panel performance. James Luffman is the CEO of Solcast, a weather-tech data company based in Australia. Along with DNV, which recently acquired his company, James is building never-before-seen weather data and forecasting that brings true scalability to the solar industry. Their strategies, from adopting product-led growth models to leveraging advanced satellite technology for improved resolution and frequent imagery, all aim to enhance the efficacy of real-time weather forecasting for solar.This discussion encapsulates the intersection of technology, meteorology, and renewable energy. In an industry once void of sophisticated weather forecasting models, fast and efficient access to real-time, reliable data has become critical to solar performance. What captivated my attention in all of this is how DNV, a massive global engineering giant with an R&D budget in excess of $115 Million USD/yr would purchase SolCast, and what it plans to do with the platform now that they have it in-house! You're going to love the answer from their Global Solar Segment leader, Dana Olsen.

In this episode, your podcast host, Charlie Uniman, and Dan Broderick discuss: How Dan started BlackBoiler after practicing law for 7 years, having gotten the idea for Blackboiler while reviewing large numbers of contracts for a client and realizing how much of the work could be automated. BlackBoiler's focus on automating high-volume contract review and markup during the negotiation phase, with BlackBoiler using machine learning AI to learn from historical edits and rule sets in order to suggest edits in tracked changes. BlackBoiler's target market consists principally of corporate legal departments, with people in those departments - and in other departments in the enterprise - using BlackBoiler's software to help them review contracts more efficiently and to empower business users who “touch” contracts frequently, but who aren't lawyers. What some of the challenges are in selling AI, including the challenge (and importance) of separating hype from reality and getting customers to think “problem-first,” not “AI-first.” How BlackBoiler uses machine learning, but currently not of the generative AI type, as the tasks that Blackboiler carries out are more a matter of text-classification than text-generation. However, Dan does point out that generative AI may be helpful for purposes of initial drafting and finding clauses. For legal tech startup leaders, some of Dan's key pieces of advice are finding the determination to get through business highs and lows and making sure to reward positive team dynamics.

Do you have a strategy for identifying and protecting your company's most valuable inventions? That's what I'm discussing on this episode. Patent attorneys are important to help prepare patent applications. But without an appropriate Patent Strategy, you may be missing out on your most important inventions. A patent strategist works with teams in technology companies to identify, prioritize, and protect the company's highest value inventions. An experienced patent strategist also monitors the growth of your patent portfolio to ensure that is provides maximum value to the company and supports the company's goals. A well-designed patent strategy can: 1. Provide a Competitive Advantage 2. Attract Investors 3. Retain/Attract Key Employees 4. Offer Peace of Mind 5. Increase Company Valuation These are important benefits that protect your company's R&D investment of time and money while also strengthening your team and competitive edge. Today on the Tech Leader Talk podcast: - The importance of a Patent Strategist to tech companies - A common mistake when thinking about patent applications - 3-step system (Identify – Evaluate – Protect) to build a valuable patent portfolio - Patent Strategy Success Study “Although a patent attorney is important to your business, you also need a patent strategist.” – Steve Sponseller Questions?

Episode 132: Architecture, And: Ownership, Mergers, and Tech StartupsHow do you utilize technology to make good design efficient and accessible for everyone?On this episode of Practice Disrupted, we sit down with Alma Lopez, Head of Creative at CANOA, and Elizabeth (Liz) Wert, Head of Brand at CANOA, an AI-assisted collaborative online tool for designers, to learn about their journey from business owners to company mergers, how a tech startup forces efficiency, and the ways CANOA serves as an inspiration point for both its users and an evolving industry.First, we hear how Alma and Liz decided to start their business, ADITIONS, together in 2021 from a human-centric approach to leverage community as a way to locally source design pieces. They illustrate how the merger with CANOA gave them an opportunity to use technology to make good design accessible to everyone. “Do we stay and go the traditional route and scale our studio, and keep working with the 1% that can actually afford our services? Or do we go and build software with an amazing team that actually helps the interior design industry do better through technology? It was kind of like a no-brainer. We got to help everyone.” - Liz WertThen, we dive into CANOA: its impact in the design and tech startup world, how it challenges the industry to be more efficient, and why it serves as a reminder that design is never done alone. We ask Alma and Liz to share their specific roles and the ways that their background and skill sets overlap to support each other and the business. Plus, we learn about CANOA's current user base and the possibility of international reach. To wrap up the episode, Alma and Liz share why their love for problem-solving is essential for building and growing a startup, and how diversity in the profession will support the future of CANOA (and the architecture and design industry) as a place for discovery, education, building community, and promoting sustainability.

This might be our wonkiest topic yet: Techno-economic analysis, or TEA. Before a startup has proven that its technology is commercially viable, it models how its technology would work. These TEAs include things like assumptions about inputs, prices, and market landscape. They help investors and entrepreneurs answer the question, will this technology compete? TEAs are important to the success of an early-stage climate-tech company. And a lot of startups get them wrong. As an investor at Energy Impact Partners (EIP), Shayle and his team see a lot of TEAs—and have some pet peeves. What can startups do to improve their TEAs? In this episode, Shayle talks to his colleagues Dr. Greg Thiel, EIP's director of technology, and Dr. Melissa Ball, EIP's associate director of technology. They cover topics like: Bad assumptions about things like levelized cost of production Focusing on a component instead of a system Focusing on unhelpful metrics Using false precision—something Shayle calls “modeling theater” Recommended Resources: Activate: Techonomics: Establishing best practices in early stage technology modeling Department of Energy: Techno-economic, Energy, & Carbon Heuristic Tool for Early-Stage Technologies (TECHTEST) Tool National Renewable Energy Laboratory: Techno-Economic Analysis Catalyst is a co-production of Post Script Media and Canary Media.

Meet Kathryn Farrell, Founder of Scopa Health and praciticing Anesthesiologist Assistant. After getting rejected from every top medical school she applied to Kathryn had to figure out a backup plan and fast. Pivoting to anesthesiology she discovered she enjoyed the challenge of the coursework. Graduating with a masters in Health Services, Kathryn launched her career as an anesthesiology assistant and within 6 short months the excitement quickly dissipated. The flexibility of the work and the generous compensation (not to mention student loans) made it seem foolish to change. So for the next 10 years, Kathryn would scratch the itch for learning by tinkering with different careers including photography, developer, and she even designed, patented, and sold a baby carrier. Each time the experience of learning something new was exciting but she quickly learned it was not what she wanted. Kathryn resigned herself to sticking things out until at the height of the pandemic as an essential worker with a newborn at home she hit her lowest point. She knew it was time to commit to figuring out her future career. Show Notes:Connect with Kathryn on LinkedInLearn more about Kathryn's company Scopa HealthKathryn O'Day podcast

If you have been following Silicon Valley and tech news, you might be wondering what the future of tech startups in general are and what trends venture capitalists are following nowadays. Our guest, Paul Martino, might be able to answer those questions for you. Paul Martino is the founder of eight companies including Tribe; one of the world's first social networks, and aggregate knowledge a big data advertising company. Paul holds over a dozen patents on core social networking concepts, content targeting and recommendation systems. This is a fun, fascinating and deeply insightful conversation with one of our favorite thinkers in the tech startup world. You're listening to Christopher Lochhead: Follow Your Different. We are the real dialogue podcast for people with a different mind. So get your mind in a different place, and hey ho, let's go. Paul Martino on Venture Capital, Fundraising, and Market Sentiment The conversation begins with Paul Martino and Christopher Lochhead talking about the challenging environment for venture capitalists. Paul Martino acknowledges the tough 18 months, highlighting a temporary upswing but anticipating further challenges. Christopher shares mixed signals from CEOs, noting a tough market despite some positive indicators. Paul observes a significant change in fundraising capital availability in Q2, attributing it to increased confidence with NASDAQ's rise. As Christopher mentions entrepreneurs preferring angel investors over traditional VCs due to difficulties and lowered valuations, Paul disapproves of VC complacency during tough times and assures entrepreneurs that committed VCs like him are open for business, emphasizing their entrepreneurial mindset. He also understands the logic behind entrepreneurs relying on existing investors during market uncertainty. Paul Martino on the impact of market downturn on early- and late-stage companies They then continue to discuss the challenges faced by late-stage companies dealing with overvalued situations. Paul emphasizes the distinction between a down round and a recap, suggesting that a down round, while not ideal, is manageable. He also stresses the importance of CEOs accepting a realistic valuation to issue new options and retain employees, criticizing those who let ego hinder practical decisions. Christopher raises concerns about companies with significantly reduced growth rates, questioning their true value. Paul gives a hypothetical example of a $10 billion company dropping to $3 billion, highlighting the need for companies to adapt and not shy away from necessary adjustments to move forward. Paul Martino on San Francisco's decline and potential for recovery The conversation shifts to the topic of the decline of vibrant cities like San Francisco and Portland. Paul observes the eerie emptiness in once-bustling areas, expressing concern for the loss of the lively environment. Lochhead shares similar sentiments, reminiscing about the exciting times they experienced during previous boom periods. They discuss the root causes of these issues, focusing on policy changes like Prop 47 and Prop 57 in California that decriminalized theft under $1,000, leading to increased crime rates. Paul believes it will take a new generation of pragmatic leaders to address institutional problems and revive cities, estimating a 20-year timeframe for San Francisco's recovery. The conversation highlights their shared disappointment in witnessing the decline of the cities they once knew.

⭐ My guest today is Tim Krysiek, Managing Partner at MassMutual Ventures. MassMutual is an insurance and financial services firm with $460B in AUM, and MassMutual Ventures is their venture arm. Their new US Climate Tech Fund represents $100M and is focused on early-stage opportunities (Series A and B) in climate intelligence, sustainable cities, and clean power. Initial check sizes are $2-5M. Tim was previously Managing Director at Equinor Ventures where he worked across the energy value chain, including renewables, fusion, mobility, and storage. He was also a consultant at Cambridge Energy Research Associates (now S&P Global), a researcher at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, and a political risk consultant at Google. Krysiek achieved all these great things because he got an MBA from Duke University, where I teach. (OK, I exaggerate slightly.) When not investing in world-changing companies, I hear that he's an aspiring Eastern European cook focused on the 3Ps – pierogies, pelmeni, or potica. ---

Between 2019 to 2021 there was a 28% increase in women starting companies resulting in women making up 49% of new companies founded in 2021.

Knowledge is power. In today's episode I will share data on the realities for success (and funding) for founders, surprising truths about who is starting these companies, and strategies to help you navigate a broken system. Whether you are thinking about starting a company, are currently building your company, or are curious about the startup world this episode is a must listen.Show Notes:Growth in female founders starting companiesAverage Age of Entrepreneur77% of Founders use their personal money for capitalMcKinsey & Co Women in the Workplace studyWomen earning the same or more than their husbands88% of VC decision makers are men1 in 5 unicorns have women in executive leadershipWomen only getting 1.9% of funding75% of VC Backed Fintech companies fail.6% of companies take funding
Startup Founders act as Salespeople, sales engineers, product managers, and many other roles. There lies the problem because some who have no sales experience make many mistakes in the sales process, and those without presales experience make more mistakes in the presales process.
