Here’s what we’re talking about on the show:
- Is Atlanta’s start-up services (incubators, classes, programs, etc) industry getting too crowded? The cover of this week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle is titled “15 years after the dot com bust, startup fever returns to Atlanta” and the online version also includes these stories:
In studio guest Brian McGowan, CEO of Invest Atlanta and soon to be COO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber joined me to talk start-up fever and about his work at Invest Atlanta, and where he sees the city heading.
We also have a phone interview with Olivia Khalili, the founder of CauseCapitalism.com, a consultancy and online resource that helps businesses grow by implementing a social mission. We’ve been talking about the pros and cons of cause marketing on the show, so I thought I’d bring in an expert!
And in the national news:
- Facebook is getting into virtual reality. Is the Star Trek Holodeck next?
- After a promising IPO, Candy Crush is seeing it’s stock price fall – like a sad empty candy wrapper. So a fun game doesn’t necessarily mean a good investment!
On today’s soapbox :
A selfie of you in the bathroom mirror is not appropriate for your LinkedIn picture. The only thing worse is no picture at all. Or a picture of your dog. Resist the urge. And stop being lazy… professional head shots are not that expensive.
