Bob and Pat talk with Mark Juras, co-founder of Great Migrations about his firm’s deep software translation offering. If your company still running VB6 or ASP, Great Migrations might be the silver bullet you’ve been waiting for. And, Pat launches his own microISV in addition to keeping his day job (woot!). He needs a real name for his product – Call our Listener Hotline ( 206-202-6473) to make your suggestion!

Show #42: Rob Walling and Mike Taber, the Micropreneur Academy

with 3 comments

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat talk with Rob Walling and Mike Taber, founders of the Micropreneur Academy, an online training program for people who want to become microISVs. Rob and Mike are software entrepreneurial veterans and have designed a powerful online learning environment that delivers real value at a very reasonable price.

(Bob’s Disclaimer: While some may think my StartupToDo.com and Rob’s Micropreneur Academy are competitors who should be biting and clawing at each other for your money, neither of us see it that way. If you’re serious about building a software business you should buy both! :))

Pat talks about something startups may have missed in the hoopla over System 7, namely Beta 2 of Visual Studio 2010 and the .NET Framework 4, and Bob talks about a third new resource for startups – with a precautionary warning.

Show #5: Our first Social Media President, Change Round-Up

with 3 comments

The Startup Success Podcast

The Startup Success Podcast

In our fifth show, I interview Change Round-Up CTO Andrew Badera on putting a new spin on both online customer retention and charitable giving. Change Round-Up is a startup that has found a niche between online retailers looking for ways to make their offerings more “sticky” and various charitable organizations who want to make it easier to give.

Pat and I discuss the recent U.S. Presidential Election from a tech point of view and also talk about the favorably changing developer landscape – too many platforms, not enough startups to go around.

And I have your weekly microISV tip – three things to keep firmly in mind when using PayPal, and Pat has both a microISV tip and a thoughtful book recommendation regarding the people end of this business.

2. I offer up a microISV tip of the week (this week is about when to ask for the sale)

3. I and/or Pat interview someone who’s good some useful experience/insight to share with the microISV/startup community.

4. Pat provides a Microsoft-related tip: this week its getting started with the Vista Sidebar.

5. One of us make a book/video/site recommendation we think you’ll find really worthwhile.

Please let us know what you think of this format – it’s definitely a work in progress!
