Part 2: Companies are Bought not Sold

The media spends most of their time in the “happy part of Silicon Valley”, where companies are funded, grow, and are acquired. The sale of the company sounds like a naturally occurring event, but the effort to sell a startup company is incredibly demanding and the fact is: there are very few public forums that talk about the challenges and effort required.

Texas Hold 'em for the Angel Investor

This startup story begins with an accelerator hosted by Texas State University and a startup named SioTeX. Two years after the initial funding, the company was low on cash and had not found traction in the primary market as defined by the original team and the CEO had decided to leave the company and pursue some other interest. The dilemma for the investors was to decide if it was time to hold ‘em and invest more money or time to fold ‘em, and walk away and let the company fold from insolvency.

How Do Criminals Steal Your Digital Identity

We hear a great deal of discussion about protecting access to our digital assets, bank accounts, travel services, retail sites and even government agencies like the IRS and State Tax Authorities. The recommendations focus on creating a secure name and password, two-factor authentication and possibly a biometric verification such as a fingerprint or voice print. During the RSA conference in San Francisco, I came across another source of digital identity theft, easily overlooked and there is was, staring me in the face one morning when I checked my name on a “financial aggregation” web site. These are sites that collect information about each of us and then sell that information to anyone, anyone who will attest with an online click that they will only use the information in an authorized procedure, such as qualifying for benefits, or employment verification. As part of the podcast series on cybersecurity issues, I met with a company that specialized in providing identity verificati...
