    Stimulating the Formation of a Capital Funding Ecosystem’ in Florida

    Florida's Commissioner and the Office of Financial Regulation (OFR), Russell Weigel, III, joins Karen Rands to talk about the challenges to access to capital for Florida businesses from private investors that has created barriers rather than making it easier to raise capital through crowdfunding in Florida. In many ways, Florida has a vibrant angel investor community and a growing presence of venture capitalists expanding into Florida to invest in high tech startups. Florida's SCORE - Small Company Registration program is under review and Commissioner Weigel and OFR are seeking feedback for a legislative initiative to modify SCORE with the goal is to promote Florida’s economy through the creation of a self-sustaining, in-state capital market where many newly formed businesses can obtain seed or expansion capital.

    Commissioner Weigel is an AV-rated securities attorney, with more than 30 years of legal experience including experience as an enforcement attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and a published author.

    Compassionate Capitalist Show - Do You 'Deserve' Success in Business & Life?

    Compassionate Capitalist Show - Do You 'Deserve' Success in Business & Life?

    Whether you call it a self-fulfilling prophecy or expectancy effect, your internal view of yourself doesn’t let you exceed your "deserve" level – we get in life what we (subconsciously) believe we deserve. Henry Ford described it aptly, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't—you're right.” 

    Ed Bohlke, Creator of Deserve Level Coaching, joins Karen on this episode to talk about the hidden barriers, their source and process to break down those barriers that entrepreneurs and executives experience in pursuit of their dream that can cause their business to plateau and derail. This is important for investors to also understand because it can impact their return on the investment in that company.

    Ed Bohlke (edbohlke.com DeserveLevel.com) had direct experience in creating success as CEO of Serious IP, Inc, with an IP portfolio of over 140 patents in 60 countries with $25M guaranteed license revenues, raising 35M in financing along the way.  Ed has been perfecting the idea of 'Deserve Level' as he applied it in his own life and now coaches CEOs and Key Executives to help them achieve the success they anticipate.

    Karen Rands, the leader of the Compassionate Capitalist Movement, and author of the Best Seller, Inside Secrets to Angel Investing.  She uses her 20+ years experience from working with entrepreneurs and investors to help investors identify the red flags in deal that will cause the company to fail, so they reduce their risk and stop wasting time on deals that won't scale.

    Compassionate Capitalist Strategy - IoT and Deep Tech and Pivoting in a Pandemic

    Compassionate Capitalist Strategy - IoT and Deep Tech and Pivoting in a Pandemic

    Few people predicted a global pandemic would be the black swan event of the decade, even a generation.  It has forever changed many business processes, the future of work, and the perception of a company's greatest asset.  The pandemic has taught us a very valuable lesson-- people are a companies biggest asset -- not the real estate their building or plan it on, not the machinery or trucks they use to make and deliver their products, its the people.

    In this episode Karen talks with Ron Rock of Microshare.io about the evolution and benefits of IoT and how Microshare uses LoRaWAN low power, wide-area gateways to solve the greatest need business owners faced during the pandemic- protecting their people and customers from exposure to COVID19.

    Before "FOUNDING  Microshare.io, Ron spent about a third of his career with Fortune 500 companies, and the other two thirds with entrepreneurial startups. Microshare.io helps businesses establish new operational models that enable the capturing, tracking, tracing, and story data events and information, while respecting privacy, security and compliance.

    Sharon Lechter, coauthor of Exit Rich, joins Karen Rands to talk about the 6Ps and how entrepreneurs can start right and build a business that will enable the founders and their investors to exit rich from when it is time to sell their business.  An unfortunate reality of business ownership is that 8 out of 10 business owners will sell it for pennies on the dollar or not be able to sell their business at all.  This is frustrating and a profound disappointment for those founders and investors that invest time, money & resources into the business in the hopes of a strong ROI.  Listen as Sharon and Karen talk about the 6P Method as a road map for entrepreneurs to start right or get their business on track to be able to maximize the value and sale price for their business.
