Know Your Ecosystem: Josh Maher On Connecting with Angel Investors

One of the most exciting aspects of the current entrepreneurial ecosystem is the opportunity to showcase your product or service at an event. Just a decade ago, there were few options in terms of events geared toward showcasing startup offerings, and finding a way to showcase your product was a real challenge. Today, so many different events exist that it can be hard for a startup to know which events will best allow them to showcase their product and connect with angel investors.

Rhode Island Takes a Swing at an Innovation Ecosystem - with URI's Dr. Anthony Wheeler

Rhode Island Takes a Swing at an Innovation Ecosystem – with URI’s Dr. Anthony Wheeler

Dr. Anthony Wheeler got into management consulting because he wanted to help people, and to solve problems.

Oddly enough, the position he found for himself is in the state that we might argue to be most in need for "help" on the entire east coast: Rhode Island.

Jonathan Eisen (UC Davis, uBiome) and the Wild West of the Human Microbiome

Dr. Jonathan Eisen is a Harvard and Stanford educated scientist, speaker, author, and advisor to microbiome startup uBiome. I was pointed in his direction after catching up with uBiome's CEO about the burgeoning science behind their biome technology. Between TED talks, interviews, and his ongoing research at University of California at Davis, Jonathan is recognized as a leading expert on the human microbiome. In our conversation I wanted to hone in on the so-called "chicken and egg" problem of using microbiome data, and the best steps forward for science to truly understand this field.

“Going to the Dark Side” – from Entrepreneur to Investor with Brad Kayton

Most of the time I get to sit down to interview investors, I'm hopping on Skype. In this case, through luck and coincidence, I got to catch up with entrepreneur and investor Brad Kayton in a 99 Restaurant right here in central Massachusetts. Brad and I were connected through a friend on Linkedin who'd mentioned our podcast and the interviews we're conducting on startup success and investor advice.
