Troy Templeton - CopyTroy Templeton is the managing partner of Trivest Partners, L.P., the oldest private equity firm in the southeastern U.S. Trivest, headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida, focuses on partnering with founder/family-owned businesses in the United States and Canada. Since its founding in 1981, Trivest has completed more than 200 transactions, totaling over $5 billion in value. Troy discusses his experience working with Zintro below:

“The lifeblood of our business is new deal origination. We are constantly seeking fresh avenues to increase the number of acquisition candidates we see as well as the overall quality of these opportunities. Zintro has provided us with both. Leveraging the vast contact networks of Zintro’s expert base has bolstered our annual deal flow from a previously untapped source. Additionally, since the Zintro experts are typically talented individuals from a wide range of industries, we’ve found the deal introductions from Zintro tend to be above-average quality businesses, creating a higher likelihood of Trivest pursuing an acquisition. As an added benefit, Zintro not only has helped us source opportunities, many times we have leveraged the Zintro network to help us evaluate those deals during our due diligence process. We look very forward to continuing to grow alongside Zintro in the years to come.”

BiotechThe Biogen Idec Foundation presented a $1.5 million grant to the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) to launch the World Biotech Tour. ASTC is an organization that represents almost 400 science centers and museums in the U.S. and 45 other countries. According to the two groups, the World Biotech Tour “aims to increase the impact and visibility of biotechnology among youth, the general public, and underserved communities to promote science literacy.” The tour will make its first three stops in Belgium, Portugal and Japan.

Tony Kingsley, Chairman of the Biogen Idec Foundation released a statement about the efforts. “The Biogen Idec Foundation is committed to furthering efforts that promote the drive, dedication, creativity and educational excellence of future scientists. With the growing need for developing tomorrow’s STEM workforce, we are glad to partner with the ASTC to help to achieve this goal.”

Bruce Compton, Ph.D. is a research professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering Biomanufacturing Center at the University of Massachusetts.  He has 25 years of experience in biologics and drug delivery and is an expert in separation sciences and product characterization. He discusses one of the issues with educating young students about biotechnology:

An issue with promoting biotech with the youth, as seen at science fairs is that the guidelines for creating a project often restrict the use of any animals or microbial subjects. I think this may be relatively fundamental given that by definition biotechnology involves some type of living organism or things derived from organisms.

CU.S. officials are pushing biotechnology researchers at Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc. to make more of ZMapp, which ran out in August. The drug is a promising experimental Ebola treatment. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave Mapp a $150,00 grant to examine whether it is possible to mass produce the drug. According to the foundation’s senior program officer Bryan Callahan, Mapp and its partners have discussed the feasibility of increasing production with a traditional biotechnology manufacturing technique with Amgen Inc. but no final decision has been made in regard to a pharma partner. Amgen is the world’s biggest biotechnology company by sales and is based in Thousand Oaks, California.

Zintro expert Antonio Toniolo, MD, FAMH, explains, “The ZMapp “biological drug” (a cocktail of anti-Ebola antibodies) is of great value. However, its efficacy will be limited to rich Countries with a few Ebola cases. This is due to difficulties in production, costs, distribution, and administration to patients.”Two products will be more effective and are badly needed: 1) an oral antiviral drug (a chemical) that may be used both for curing infected people and for preventing virus replication in people possibly exposed to virus (e.g., healthcare workers, family members of cases, etc.). The drug could derive from pipelines of several different Pharma companies after “short” in vitro testing against Ebola virus; 2) an Ebola vaccine. This is being developed in Switzerland and elsewhere.

“There are no major difficulties in this direction, but the time required to measure safety and efficacy in animals and humans is surely long. Then, the vaccine should be produced, distributed, administered to at risk populations, etc. The herd immunity effects will take over one year in a small nation. In the short term, I would suggest to concentrate efforts on chemicals with possible activity against Ebola virus replication. Pharma companies and virology experts know well what virus enzymes need to be targeted.”

Navneet Sharma is a biotechnology professional who works in research and higher education. In his  opinion, “Although there might be so many different methods for producing antibodies, they all need to be checked before these techniques are implemented at mass production scale. But definitely there had been so many patients who are either suffering or have died because of this disease. What about their ‘blood?’ Could it not be used as a source of antibodies against Ebola? I totally think so.

“That way we wouldn’t be looking at alternatives for producing recombinant antibodies but the ones produced in the natural host itself. What does everyone say? The only thing that we need to develop is ‘a protocol for getting blood from such patients and then a method to store it and get antibodies separated from it.’ It should definitely be given a try and I think that it will relieve us from looking for similar plants like Tobacco to produce Ebola antibodies.”

boxes-406272_1280Nine consumer and environmental health groups recently petitioned the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) arguing for a ban on some of the chemicals used in food packaging, especially pertchelorate and long-chain perfluorocarboxylates (PFCs). Pertchelorate is added to sealing gaskets to reduce static in dry food packaging and PFCs keep pizza boxes and sandwich wrappers free of grease. According to the petition, these chemicals can harm fetal development, male reproductive systems, and pre- and post-natal brain development. In addition, the petition claims they cause cancer.

Pharmaceutical consultant Rajkumar M. Gupta has over 30 years of hands-on technical and management level experience within the Packaging/API/Pharmaceuticals industries worldwide. He says, “The petitioners claim on harmful effects of long-chain perfluorocarboxylates (PFCs) shall be evaluated by FDA and the petitioner must be provided a white paper on the subject . Maybe the petitioner is right.”

Research engineer Richard A. Freundlich is the President of RAF Solutions, consulting services for the plastics industry. He is a specialist in plastics technology with major focus on thermoplastic polyesters (PET)and PET foam, with a focus on food and protective packaging. He explains, “One should consider the use of Polyhydroxyalkonates (PHA) Biopolymers as a solution as they offer exceptional grease and oil resistance , are FDA approved and can be used as a Latex coating on a variety of substrates.”

FDAThe FDA recently made an attempt to clarify when a change in a medical device requires a recall or should be considered an “enhancement.” According to a notice published in the Federal Register last week, some companies may have difficulty determining whether an update to their product actually meets the criteria for a recall. The FDA guidance provides a formal definition of an enhancement as well as supporting examples of different scenarios.

FDA guidance explains that “enhancement” is a change that improves the quality of a device so that it better meets the needs of consumers but is not something that remedies a violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

Zintro expert Daniel O’Connell is President of Prometheus Medical Device Consultants. He and his consulting group have extensive experience in various specialties within the medical device industry such as marketing, business development, quality systems, FDA, OEM deals and partnership agreements. He says, “The meaning of the new guidance is that if the change does not adversely affect the safety or effectiveness of the device, then it does not require a new filing or a refile.”

chrisMDBMDB Capital Group, LLC, a VC firm based in Dallas and Santa Monica, was the first company to conduct a search for a senior level hire through crowdsourcing on the Zintro platform. Instead of hiring a recruitment firm, MDB offered $20K to any Zintro member that referred a successful CEO candidate with experience in mobile devices or consumer electronics for their Austin-based portfolio company.

The crowdsourced recruiting method was a strong success. A total of 128 referrals were received and a candidate was hired. Chris Marlett, CEO of MDB Capital Group, was thrilled with the results of the Zintro bounty inquiry. He commented, “It was one of the best hires we have ever made.”

As a result of the search, Zintro member Dan Mullaney received a check from MDB for $24,000. Since that time, MDB submitted a second bounty inquiry for another senior executive search, this time in the medical devices space. MDB Capital Group is Wall Street’s only IP-driven public venture bank, with over 15 years of experience launching disruptive technologies into the public markets.

l78838-comcast-eps-logo-60255-1Comcast Corp. has received criticism by companies like Netflix and Discovery Communications Inc. for its $45.2 billion bid for Time Warner Cable Inc. last February. Netlix has opposed the deal because it want Comcast to be prevented from charging for the streamer’s Web traffic. Discovery has argued that the merger would reduce the number of independent voices among programmers.

Comcast defended the proposed deal to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in a recent filing. Comcast argued that it won’t interfere with competition and will allow the new company to invest more in its networks. The FCC and Justice Department are in the process of vetting the acquisition for harms to competition or consumers.

Herbert Rossin is a past cable network president. He warns, “Allowing Comcast to take over Time Warner is a big mistake for the American cable customer. After each merger you will notice cable rates go up and service down. This would make Comcast a virtual monopoly. With NBC and their other TV interest this gives them carte blanche to charge whatever they want. It is the worst idea since the elimination of the equal time amendment. After 40 years in the industry I want to know what ever happened to Newton Minnow and the FCC?”

CaptureLast month Zintro experts discussed a drive within the medical devices industry to develop consumer-friendly heart devices for the aging population. One example is the Reveal Linq, a $5,000 device made by Medtronic Inc. that is the size of a paperclip. It records heart abnormalities when inserted underneath the skin of a patient’s chest.

Michael Plishka, President of ZenStorming, responded to the discussion. “We will see more of this as sensor and wireless transmission technologies continue to advance, and their costs continue to drop. Decreases in size and power requirements means more possibilities for use in medical devices. A concern is that Regulatory bodies such as the FDA cannot move with the same speed as technology. This will result in implementation delays, meaning the public won’t see these products in a prompt manner. On the horizon, look for these types of products to have patient interactivity.”

Incidentally, the FDA is in the news this week due to a newly released study that calls the agency into question when it comes to medical device safety. Researchers published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that the majority of moderate to high-risk devices approved by the FDA lack publicly available scientific evidence to verify their safety and effectiveness. This is despite a 1990 law requiring public data to justify FDA clearance.

Study author Dr. Diana Zuckerman is president of the National Center for Health Research in Washington. She has called for better enforcement of the law. “It’s shocking how little information is available despite an FDA leadership that talks about transparency.”

The FDA responded by explaining that it “reviews a significant amount of data—far more than what is publicly available.” In addition, the agency claimed it “has served the American public well by balancing the need for robust evidence to assure safety, while expeditiously bringing new technologies” to the public.

The post Blackberry Releases Passport for Professionals Part 2 appeared first on Zintro Blog.

BlackBerry_Passport 3We recently discussed the release of Blackberry’s new square-screened Passport phone with Zintro experts in the industry. The Passport is the first major device introduced globally by the company since John Chen was named Chief Executive Officer last November. The smartphone, which is geared to professionals, is one example of how Blackberry is concentrating on providing higher-margin services for corporations. We received additional responses from Zintro experts about the release.

Quinton Crenshaw is a Senior Partner at Purity Technology, LLC, where he works with large enterprises to solve business problems through the use of technology. According to Quinton , “Blackberry’s announcement that they are back in the game is great for workers in the financial and defense segments. They have been tied to antiquated devices for the sake of being on the ‘most secure mobile platform’ for several years now while Blackberry was in this slump. This announcement signals that at least at some point in the future, these workers will have some device options that remotely compare to the devices their cool friends are carrying.

“The announcement is also good for the EMM industry. If Blackberry is able to become relevant again, the EMM’s will have to improve their performance and capabilities when it comes to security where Blackberry has always dominated. If Blackberry can deliver an end user experience with some competing features and applications in BlackberryWorld that create stickiness to their platform, then there is a chance that they could gain back some marketshare.”

Jeff Griffin, a pioneer in the creation of mobile device applications, has over 15 years of experience in the industry. One of his many accomplishments was creating a patent pending system to establish cell phone quiet zones. He does not see the Passport making a significant difference for Blackberry.

“Unfortunately for Blackberry, a ‘Back to the Future’ approach will not help them solve their core strategic issues,” Jeff explains. “Blackberry built their success on Enterprise email and access, focusing on key enablers and innovating along a direct path to helping businesses drive efficiency. By delivering email in a timely and secure manner, Blackberry could drive device sales and also drive adoption of their Enterprise server.

“Now, there are many solutions that provide that same function. These solutions work across device and platform and have lowered corporate costs while providing equivalent service. While the Blackberry keyboard is a great tool, it is not enough to drive an entire ecosystem and to entice users to their platform. It may be the greatest device ever – but they will not be able to build momentum in the market.”

Chris McKinney handles management of aspects of mobile services for underserved SME sized companies. He agrees with Jeff. “While it seems to have a number of people talking about it — and Blackberry’s ecosystem is by far the best Business system in the world — I can’t see the Passport giving them one iota of traction on their way to a comeback. Stick with Mobile Device Security and cross-platform enablement and innovate in the size/look/feel of the consumer devices available right now….or not at all.”

Hello,
I was wondering if you could answer the following questions:

1) What are ALL of the unlearned (innate) factors that produce pleasure affects when a human eats food (i.e. the first bullet point on page 7 of 34 in this presentation that i found online **** ) –
the answer should therefore include the pleasure affects of oral sensations when eating food (hence the flavor of food i.e taste, smell and chemesthesis sensations e.g.- Sweet causes pleasure, bitter causes aversion etc) and all of the other hardwired pleasure affects of food on humans eg-unconscious hedonic responses that relay to the pleasure centres due to amino acids, fatty acids, maltodextrins, sugars, especially sucrose. We do not experience conscious sensations when these receptors are stimulated in the GI tract. E.g.- Both fats and proteins are broken into their constituent parts by digestion. There are receptors for those constituent parts (fatty acids from fats, the amino acid glutamate from proteins) in the digestive tract. Therefore the stomach can signal the brain that you have eaten a food containing fat or protein. Our brains make us like the sensations evoked by the foods that gave rise to the fatty acids and glutamate.
(Having done a bit of research online on this topic, it seems that the research of Dr Steven Witherly is very relevant to this question)
By “pleasure affects” i mean the hardwired factors that release pleasure chemicals when a human eats food…

Bnorwayloomberg.com recently posted an article stating that Norway, with its $870 billion sovereign-wealth fund, is at the top of the list of foreign U.S. commercial real estate buyers. According to research firm Real Capital Analytics Inc., the country is acquiring buildings across the globe, including the U.S., with a total of more than $3.2 billion spent so far in 2014. Just last year Norway spent less than half that amount for property purchases. Research firm Green Street Advisors claims that prices for top-quality buildings in major U.S. markets are currently being driven up by foreign funds because of the willingness to accept lower yields than domestic buyers.

Rick Rybeck is an attorney with a master’s degree in real estate and urban development. He has over 20 years of experience with the legislative and executive branches of state and local government. According to Rybeck, “We live in a global economy. The desire for profit is the same regardless of the nationality of the investor. Articles that focus on the nationality of investors in U.S. property create specious fears and exploit xenophobia while missing the important news.

“The important news is that real estate booms and busts helped create the Great Depression and every major recession or depression in our history. Unless we address the root cause of real estate speculation, we will repeat these episodes regardless of whether the speculators are foreign or domestic.

“Fortunately, there is a policy tool that has been successfully employed to promote affordable housing, job creation and more sustainable development while reducing land speculation and sprawl. This tool is a reform of the property tax whereby the tax rate on privately-created building values is reduced while the tax rate on publicly-created land values is increased.”

collegeIn a previous post, Zintro experts weighed in on the U.S. Census Bureau announcement that total college enrollment dropped 2.3 percent in 2013– a decline of 463,000 students. We received such strong feedback that today’s post will include additional opinions from  Zintro experts.

D. Terry Rawls, Ed.D. is President and Founder of the consulting firm Strategic Transitions Group, where he assists individuals and institutions worldwide with embracing and successfully navigating change. He has worked in higher education administration for over 25 years. Dr. Rawls says, “The inverse relationship between the economy and college enrollments has been tracked for decades, so as the U.S. economy improves it is not a surprise that enrollments would decline. That the biggest decline would be in community colleges where career-focused associate’s degrees are most common is also no surprise. Those individuals who found themselves out of word in the recession went back to school to re-tool for their next career.

“And while this accounts for much of the decline, it is not the whole story. A quick check of the pipeline– high school enrollments around the country– shows a plateau and even declines in the numbers of high school graduates coming into the system. As those numbers fall colleges and universities will find themselves in an increasingly competitive landscape, and this trend will continue for some time to come. On the positive side for these institutions, there are still 31 million working adults who need to complete their degree that they abandoned in their youth. Of course, there will be plenty of competition for this population too.”

Dr. Carol Barash is Founder and CEO of Story to College, an online education company focused on college access. “Many U.S. families have lost confidence in college’s ability to improve work prospects,” explains Dr. Barash. “This is completely counter to facts, as college graduates, on average, earn $2.7 million more over their working life than non-degree holders. That’s why talented students from other countries flock to U.S. colleges and universities.

“But it is also true that college—particularly for students who are burdened with debt after college—does not guarantee the combination of subject matter expertise, skills + experience, and access to professional networks that once came with a college degree. Increasingly, 21st century professional success comes from one’s ability to create a compelling story that connects diverse learning and work experiences.”

As a higher educational professional with 40 years of experience, Vijendra Agarwal consults in the areas of student/professional mobility globally and career guidance for Ph.D.s in STEM fields, among other services. According to Agarwal, “The decline in student enrollment, particularly, in two-year colleges is likely due to improved employment opportunities. It is known that less motivated students, many of whom are first generation and from under-represented groups with no role-models, have little or no guidance on why they should complete a four-year college for better quality of life. Many of them prefer to seek employment after high school and if that does not happen, they seek admission in a two-year college as a fall back option.

“The enrollment decline is also associated with the increasing debt burden as a result of college degree while the college degree, according to some misinformed individuals, does not add any value to better career choices. Unfortunately, these declining trends are not good news as we are on the road to economic recovery resulting in need for well-educated workforce, particularly in STEM areas, to preserve our global standing in high tech areas and innovation.”

Jeff Marcus consults in college admissions and marketing after working 24 years for private colleges. He was named as an industry leader who has made critical contributions and had significant impact on the private college career sector in Career College Central Magazine (May/June 2012 issue). Marcus has seen significant enrollment trends over the years and has definite opinions on why college enrollment overall is down and why enrollment in two year colleges particularly is down.

“Many times I have seen the trend of slow economy equates to increased college enrollment,” discusses Marcus. “People look to add credentials to give them increased employment options in a slow economy and a college degree is number one on the list. However, when people perceive that there is no end to the down economy or it has lasted so long…people get discouraged or give up, or check out their options including college, more carefully.

“Upon careful fact finding people discover for example, that the Department of Education will tell them that the average two-year degree takes three and one-half years to complete and the average four-year degree takes five and one-half years to complete. In addition, the graduation rate at most two-year community colleges will cause nightmares! I have been in cities where the main local newspaper has published articles about community college graduation rates in the state and they were as low as 12% within four years of starting. When you added students who transferred to four-year colleges, the percentage jumped up to 20%. Three and one-half years instead of two, or five and one-half years instead of four, do not provide a quick or certain fix to unemployment. When you add in the low graduation rate for the shorter term college…people just give up and do not enroll in college!”

jonJon Mackney is a fleet sales professional with over 25 years of experience in the industry. His experience spans from directly managing a 2000 unit mixed fleet to delivering against stretching targets in corporate sales for a high profile leasing business. Jon has helped many of Europe’s large fleet organizations to achieve their strategic objectives in areas such as health and safety, procurement, cash allowances and cost reduction. He received his MBA from Buckingham Chilterns University College. Jon shares his experience working with clients through the Zintro platform:

I was approached by a procurement company that wanted to understand how best to procure vehicles globally and how how to reduce their fleet operating costs, across a number of countries. I helped them identify the best options for funding, how to mitigate operating risk and how to reduce operating costs by approximately £500 per vehicle per year. It should be noted that where a company has a poorly structured cash option or offers free fuel for private use, this level of fleet saving can be more than doubled. The attractiveness of this is that the saving is annual, not a one-off!

Zintro creates a completely new market for buyers and sellers by bringing the two together in a manner that ensures an appropriate match expertise and a mutually acceptable cost. Traditionally, many procurement teams would rely on in-house expertise when renegotiating high-value specialist supply contracts, such as fleet financing and vehicle procurement. Zintro’s proposition now offers a simple method of tapping into expertise as and when required and at relatively low cost. For example, the 250 (UK) vehicle fleet I have just advised will save about £125,000 p/a, each year. This is because we have challenged old-world fleet practices, whilst at the same time paved the way for a new choice of vehicles that in addition to reducing cost will help with the attraction and retention of staff.

collegeStudent enrollment at colleges and universities in the U.S. declined in 2013 for the second year in a row. The U.S. Census Bureau announced last week that total enrollment dropped 2.3 percent to 19.5 million, a decline of 463,000. The biggest drop was at two-year institutions, which fell 9.7 percent. Economic trends have been blamed for enrollment trends in education over the past decade. Enrollment numbers increased when the economy was hit hard in 2008, and there appears to be a fallback. In this two-part series, Zintro experts will discuss the enrollment figures.

Ian Hale is an autism/author consultant and education expert. “Some may argue that a mere two-year drop in enrollments can be written off as an anomaly, a ‘blip,’ but a closer analysis of the figures reveal this not to be the case,” explains Hale. “I have looked at each year’s figures starting from 2010, and all show a drop on the previous year’s. The last two years are significant only because the percentages appear to have accelerated to the point where they have been stimulating a broad debate, both within and outside the Higher Education community. The question at hand therefore: “Why have University enrollments been dropping, now increasingly rapidly for 5 years straight?

“I believe this has been caused by not one, but a combination of factors, one of which is, as mentioned above, the continuing stagnation of the US economy and its failure to make much impact on the level of unemployment, which has dropped by only a little over 1% over this period. These factors have two results. Firstly, fewer potential students from family’s being unable to afford high University fees; and, secondly, a well-founded fear from students of taking out college loans when even a good degree is no a guarantor of a good job at its conclusion. Many able young people are choosing to either study abroad where the standards are high, but the fees relatively low-the UK is a good example and has seen a rise in American students, or alternatively, young people are opting to stay in America and work their way up a career through in-house corporate training programs. However, this is by no means the whole story.”

Dr. Ron Thomas Jr. has been in higher education as a Dean and Professor since 1979. He has worked at technical colleges, community colleges, and major research universities, both public and private. “While it’s true that we have normally associated lean economic times with higher college enrollment, that has generally been because students thought that education would be a key to getting a job quickly thereafter. We are in a different economic situation right now as corporations are sitting on cash reserves and not hiring. Therefore, students do not see the openings or which to get training and education. Higher education is not seen as an end in itself but its utility comes from career opportunities. If those opportunities do not seem to be extant, why enroll in college?

“Further, I think we need to prepare for the next economic bubble which will be student loan defaults. Just like easy credit led to the housing bubble, easy college loan credit will lead to many people having loans with no hope of repayment. Another Federal bailout may keep the loan system solvent, especially now that it has largely been federalized anyway. Since large credit lines have been available to students, colleges had no incentive to cut tuition. I expect a retraction of the education market like the housing market experienced.”
