The San Diego Software Industry Council (SDSIC) continues to bring valuable seminars and training to the community. Tuesday night the topic was "Landing Page Design: Beyond the Landing Page" with Larry Marine, owner of the new media consulting company "Intuitive Design."
The SDSIC splits its focus to provide both training to members on a variety of business skills related to technology, as well as providing a professional networking venue to help create business and individual career opportunities.
Engineers are a funny breed. We spend much of our lives being skeptical, proving or disproving ideas and theories. At the same time we crave new ideas and technologies.
Those engineers who are creative and develop new ideas often lack skills needed to turn visions into useful products. Enter OCTANe, fuel for the entrepreneurial spirit in Orange County and Southern California. OCTANe's goal is to fuel "innovation development" in Orange County and Southern California by connecting people, capital and technology. OCTANe accelerates entrepreneurs and company development for Orange County's information technology and biomedical industries.
On May 14th I attended an OCTANe's weekly event entitled "Entrepreneurial traps - Tips for developing companies. What the big guys know but won't tell you." The speaker was Mr. Rich Henson, co-founder of Source Scientific, and Irvine-based biotech product development company.
