The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat talk with Matt Spradley, founder of Impirus Legal Websites.

Impirus provides a “WordPress/Basecamp” tailored experience for solo legal practitioners, and Matt talks candidly about the challenges and opportunities of selling to not-early adopters, how and why Impirus is using Windows Azure (“Have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.”) and more.

Quick note about this show – between recording it and today, SnapABug changed its name to SnapEngage – much better name for their cool service, IMO. One other note – we’re moving this site to WPEngine this week – no more outages!

And a quick word about our sponsor, InfluAds. If your startup’s market is other startups, web developers and designers why not reach out to them through with a small, tasteful ad at sites they already read? That’s how InfulAds works. Act now, mention “SSP” and save 20% on you first ad buy. InfluAds.com – ads for startups by a Startup.

Show #3: News from PDC, getting startup accounting right.

with 7 comments

The Startup Success Podcast!

Helping microISVs and startups succeed!

In our third show, Pat and I discuss the impact on startups and microISVs of various announcements at Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference (PDC). This is strategic, important stuff, whether or not you’re Microsoft-centric.

Also, I interview Mairtini Ni Dhomhnaill, Senior Vice President for the consulting firm Accretive Solutions on the basic financial and accounting knowledge every microISV and startup needs. Accretive Solutions has provided accounting, financial and other consulting services to over 500 startups, and Mairtini’s insight is something you won’t find via Google.

If you are going to make money, accounting and financing are things you need to at least know the basics of. This podcast interview with Mairtini will get you started; this webcast (sponsored by Microsoft) is the extended play version if you will.

Quick note: Tomorrow I wrap up the Startup 101 webcast series with a talk with the founders -Mark Morrison, CEO and Ian Clemens, CTO – of IDV Solutions, an enterprise software company that began as a microISV and has grown to 45 employees in just 4 years. Sign up here – it’s free. It’s live at 9am PDT, Oct. 31st and the recorded version will be available a day later at the ISV Innovation site.

(Since these two segments are about 20 minutes each, we skipped the microISV and Microsoft tips.)

What can we do to help you? Who should we go interview? What knowledge should we go find an expert in and pick their brains? Let us know!
