Good morning, All,

First off, our next Breakfast with an Investor will be Wednesday, December 17th and our guest investor will be the one and only David Teten. Register here, and more about David Teten below.

This past week we went to a dinner where the keynote speaker was Mark Anderson, Chair, Future In REview (FIRe) conference. He made ten predictions, and for the record, he tends to be right 94% of the time. One prediction was that the connected home was a non-starter: “home networks finally get off the launch pad and it turns out that all people want is low energy bills, TVs everywhere and a single remote. What they don’t want is talking refrigerators, things that don’t work, complexity replacing reliability, more nested menus instead of real buttons, dumb things talking to other dumb things and worst of all, hackable home networks.” Read More...

Poor Uber founder Travis Kalanick. From all indications, he is a true visionary of tech, having managed to do what cities tried to do for years and failed (carpooling, for example, but was that a fail, or a fall back to traditional economics/maximum profit for minimum service?). But Kalanick lives in a winner-takes-all world, and from his behavior for quite some time now, is the apotheosis of a tech founder gone wrong, or at least, amok. Read More...

Good morning, All,

our October Breakfast with an Angel is tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October 15th, and our guest investor is Jason Klein.

Jason Klein has a background in media, consulting, and healthcare. He is founder and CEO of On Grid Ventures, an advisory and investment firm specializing in digital media and marketing. He is also Chairman of the Harvard Business School Alumni Angels (the second largest angel group in NY, with more than $4 million invested across 25 companies), and a member of the New York Angels, the largest angel group in NY.
