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!

Tune in and find out!

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.

Intro 00:00 to 01:36
Sean Patrick McDonald – Simcraft 01:36 to 05:58
Warren Bare – CEO – Jobkabob 05:58 to 12:50
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)
Andy Riley (Development Authority, Emmanuel County)
22:39 to 35:21
Radhika Subramanian – CEO – Emcien 35:21 to 47:34

A special thanks to all of our guests for stopping by and hanging out with us!

We’ll be back soon with Jason Caplain of Southern Capitol Ventures, where we’ll chat about venture trends, the southeast, our Capital Connections event and of course, Jason’s open pitch sessions.

We welcome your continued feedback as well! If you have an interest in appearing on the show, becoming a show sponsor (hint, hint), have some suggestions for topics, have feedback, or would just like to email us and tell us to “shove off”, we invite you to contact us.

And don’t forget – the message forums are up and running. If you need help with any aspect of your venture, we welcome you to jump in and get the help you need!

    I amtrying to find startup capital for a usiness I want very much to open in my community. In the area I live there is no supermarket, and I have always wanted to own my own grocery store but I need a lot of capital and help. I would appreciate any input anyone can give me as to where and how to get my dreams started. Thank you very much for listening and I will appreciate any feedback you may have that will help. Sincerely, Ms. Deborah Johnson

    Hi Deborah. Your best bet is most certainly going to be the Small Business Administration (SBA). The web site is painful to absorb, but the SBA and/or banks are going to be your best option for a small business.
