San Diego CyberTECH September 2016 EIR Orientation Report

Part of the iHive Incubator Posts Category.

Immediately after my first CyberTECH Meetup this morning, I attended and spoke at the first Entrepreneur in Residence Orientation (also at the iBoss Cybersecurity San Diego location) where new groups and advisors introduced ourselves and exchanged our varied views of successes and failures as entrepreneurs.

This new concept is primarily to help qualified startups. Below is a partial description of the ambitious program:

“California’s tech-inspired startups drive many of today’s hottest and most innovative products and services, helping to further position the state as theglobal center for excellence in Cybersecurity, Internet of Things and Emerging Technologies such as drones, blockchain, robotics, and 3D printing.

In that spirit, CyberTECH is proud to announce the CyberTECH Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) — a six-month, low-rent program designed to build strategic relationships between early-stage companies and CyberTECH’s growing ecosystem of partners and stakeholders.

This innovative program leveraging CyberTECH’s “Social Community Incubator Model” is designed as a major element of CyberTECH’s Smart & Safe Cities initiative, in partnership with CyberCalifornia.”

I was invited by Darin Andersen, CEO of CyberTECH, to assist as an Advisor in this program. I intend to offer my skills honed from my 36-year computer technology career as an independent sole proprietor, and executive officer in my two prior S-Corp software development partnerships (EveryDay Objects, Inc. [ 1993 to 1997 ]; and Newbound, Inc. [ 2007-2015 ]).

I’ll have opportunities to use and teach my Toastmaster speaking and leadership skills, my project management skills, along with my creative presentation skills.

I look forward to developing new friendships and business contacts as I learn from the other Advisors and startup teams along the way.

Please consider attending CyberTECH’s future Meetups and to join the CyberTECH community as paid members.. I’ll look for you there. 🙂
