The TechStars Network

One of my favorite parts of filming and making various types of documentary videos is the opportunity to get a realistic glimpse into others’ lives.  It’s like getting a buffet table of knowledge where I get to sample different worlds from skydiving to quilting clubs.  I love my job.  One of the industries I’ve greatly enjoyed documenting is tech, thanks to David Cohen & TechStars.  It has been amazing to witness & document the growth of the entrepreneurial community in Boulder over the last few years.  There has been tons of exciting press on the tech & entrepreneurial community in Boulder from CNBC, Fox to MSNBC.

The TechStars Network launched January 31 as part of the White House Startup America initiative, the video above explains.  The TechStars Network will ensure that 5,000 successful and experienced entrepreneurs and investors will mentor and support 6,000 promising young entrepreneurs, increasing their success rate tenfold and creating 25,000 new jobs by 2015, while creating a sustainable engine for growing these figures over time.  I made this video using footage from The Founders web series and thanks to some cool people in NYC for setting up a camera for David’s interview… first time I interviewed someone on skype.  You can read more on the TechStars commitment with the Startup America Partnership here and also see the video on their site which is super exciting!  If you have an idea you want to pursue, now is a great time to go for it!

Music in this video includes Calvin Locklear, Harper Blynn, & Hello Kavita.  I love their music so definitely check them out.

The Founders Trailer no.2

Here is a new trailer I made on The Founders (video above), a web series that documents the adventures of tech startups going through TechStars.  It’s fun highlighting some of my favorite moments from the entire summer & compressing it into a two-minute trailer.  I ended up shooting over 30 hours of footage which turned into (12) 5-minute episodes… The Founders.  It was quite an adventurous summer as I found myself hanging out of helicopters, following startups, & meeting tons of interesting people.  Below is the first trailer I made on The Founders.  Always love to hear from you: which trailer you like better and why.

Here we go again!  I’m extremely happy to have the opportunity to make weekly 5-minute episodes on TechStars for the second summer.  Thanks to David Cohen & Brad Feld for bringing me on again to create The Founders series.  A special thanks to the sponsor Rackspace Cloud for making it all happen.

It started 2 years ago when I made a video on TechStars for Current TV, David asked the following summer if I would be interested in making weekly webisodes, I said hell ya!  This brings us to the summer of 2010.  You can read more on last summer here.
