By this point you’ve all heard of Angel Investors and Venture Capital Funds to help get your start up off the ground. But what are some other options? How do those options differ for a pure start up, versus a start up that has perhaps already been in business for a while? Ann Kayman is here to answer these questions and more.
Ann Kayman is CEO and owner of the New York Grant Company, her brainchild formed in 2002 after serving for four years in the Giuliani and Bloomberg Administrations as head of Business Development and Senior VP at the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Who really knew? Traditional interviews are expensive, inefficient, unstructured and inconvenient for all parties involved. As the jobs numbers improve and companies gear up for more hiring, now is the time for companies to consider transforming how they interview.
Digital interviewing technology is gaining popularity with companies in all industries across the country. The technology streamlines and standardizes the process for all types of interviews – whether digital, phone, in-person or On Demand. On Demand interviews are helping companies screen better and more easily identify best-fit candidates, while helping them spend less time and money doing it.
HireVue is a leading provider of digital interviewing solutions. David recently joined the company as its CEO because he’s seen how HireVue’s solutions are transforming the way companies interview.
Each year the technology industry makes a pilgrimage to the desert. The International Consumer Electronics Show is [insert a “doesn’t get any bigger than this”] metaphor. Tom is on the floor as I type …or he is on a plane …I don’t handle that …anyway, Tom is at CES as far as you are concerned.
So, what are you going to do while I put together a great CES show? Listen to a new Week in Review and and an encore presentation of our Contingency Planning & Management 2010 coverage. Find out more and get Week In Review links on the SHOW PAGE.
What’s coming up on TechTalk?
Jan 16 – ‘Overloaded Inbox? Try the cloud.’ with Brian Curry
Jan 23 – ‘Buying Technology at the Sweet Spot’ with Gabe Goldberg
This week Michael Clark from Microsoft joins Tom to cover using the cloud as a business accelerator. Head over to the [SHOW PAGE] to find out the details.
We’ve covered cloud computing for a while now. As the technologies underlying the cloud and the related services have matured, so too has our coverage. We first focused on ‘what is the cloud’. And while that definition can still be a moving target depending who you ask, there is no doubt the cloud is no longer a buzzword. Cloud computing not only delivers applications like email, it is evolving platforms that change the way you internet and changing the way IT services are delivered from small businesses to the largest enterprises (Guess who manages McDonald’s email? Autodesk, Nokia? California Emergency Management Agency?). This pay as you go computing is also lowering barriers to enter applications into various markets.
Even if you are not sure if the cloud is right for you, it is the right time to look into the cloud.
