Recently, the ATDC held their yearly company showcase. StartupLounge.com was there, and we did a handful of interviews during the showcase. Enjoy this compilation of interviews from various startup CEOs and industry luminaries!

We had a great deal of fun in this first live recording (on-location somewhere.) We had a great discussion with a couple of cool ATDC companies (Simcraft & Emcien), and also got a chance to talk to three non-ATDC companies that are doing some good things (BigContacts, OMT Energy, & Jobkabob). Barbara Stafford stopped by as well, and we had a “small” discussion on the nano sector. Good fun!

Our format is a little out of the norm as far as podcasts go. We treat our efforts as a true “show” rather than a super-concise (limited) vehicle for delivery of information. Therefore, the podcasts can run a bit long (actually, it is largely driven by the guests and their responses.) While we try to have very substantive discussions, we also try to have a lot of fun along the way (and that tends to elongate the programming a wee bit.) Our theory is that if we are having fun during the show, hopefully, you will be having a little fun listening as well.
Here is the breakdown for the show, in case you want to hop around.

|Paul Freet – CEO – BigContacts||12:50 to 15:57|
|David Ratajczak – OMT Energy / Sanjay Parekh||12:57 to 22:39|
|Barbara Stafford (National Nano Manufacturing Center)
