Silicon Flatirons Event on Innovation, IP, and Entrepreneurship

One Comment

On March 4th at the CU Boulder Law School, there is another great event on Innovation, Intellectual Property, and Entrepreneurship in the Information Industries.  The panelists include folks such as:

  • Don Elliman – Exec Director of Colorado Office of Economic Development
  • Paul Jacobs – CEO of Qualcomm
  • David Goodfriend – VP of Echostar
  • Richard Green – CEO of Cablelabs
  • Don Gips – GVP of Level 3
  • Jason Mendelson – Managing Director of Foundry Group

Phil Weiser – who hosts these events – is really on a roll this year.

Also, the transcript on The Entrepreneurial University: What the University of Colorado has to learn from MIT and Stanford is up on the web.  Read carefully and learn how 20% and one day out of six can mean the same thing.

    I work for what was a startup here in Boulder. We are in software tech, and were looking for a comp sci student to fill a short term paid position. Nothing too advanced, but interesting work.
    We emailed the dept, and someone told us to post to a mailing list. We did with a very attractive description, and got no response from students at all. I wonder if any are subscribed to the list.
    I also know a couple grad students in the dept who talk about the lack of resourcefulness and motivation of the students there. When I asked them to pass around mention of the position, they said that none of their classmates likely would be interested or able.

    There seem to be some great ideas in the paper that unfortunately don't match up with the current climate on campus at all.
    It's great to see the issues being discussed and hopefully some of the ideas implemented regarding campus culture to improve the entrepreneurial energy and academic-private enterprise interaction here.
