  1. Silicon Valley finds a new crop of tech talent in Australia

    Kiteboarding techies have discovered a new untapped market for talent in Western Australia. You might think these executives and investors from the likes of Apple, Twitter, Silicon Valley Bank, and Qualcomm, would travel nearly 24 hours just to check out one of the best kiteboarding spots in the world. But it turns out they're also just as eager to uncover its budding entrepreneurial community, especially with former Google Wave developers sparking a new wave of innovation.

  2. LAUNCH: Anybot(y) looking for funding?

    We were setting up the studio backstage at the LAUNCH Festival, when we got a surprise visitor: Anybot. Actually, it’s the QB model to be specific (whatever that means). His name is Noland Katter. Or should I say, the man behind the robot, is Noland Katter. Katter was testing out his buddy from the demo pit and sent it strolling around backstage while the accelerator panel was entertaining the audience.

  4. LIVE PandoDaily interviews with companies launching at LAUNCH

    More than 50 companies are taking the stage at this year’s LAUNCH Festival in San Francisco with more than $2 million in prizes at stake. They’re all stealth companies just waiting to reveal themselves over the course of this three-day conference. Many of the companies only have mock-ups or even just screenshots when they apply to launch their company at the event. So, if you don’t have a ticket to LAUNCH, be the first to see these companies LIVE on PandoDaily. Directly following the presentations, watch LIVE interviews with many of the entrepreneurs HERE from 9am - 4pm, Monday - Wednesday.

  6. Competitors in the connected car space thrash it out on the track

    Sonoma Raceway is not your typical venue for a business meeting -- unless you’re a professional driver or pit crew. But Chris Hulls, CEO of Life360, the maker of a mobile family locator app, wanted to find a place where entrepreneurs in the connected car space, including competitors, could meet on neutral turf.

  8. Last Minute gifts for entrepreneurs that you won't find anywhere else

    One thing I know about entrepreneurs is that they like supporting other entrepreneurs. So, why not give them the gift of funding a fellow innovator. Crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter and Crowdfunder are great places to find cool new products and services that entrepreneurs would love to support and even be the first to try. Offer $1 for a big solid ‘Thank you” or any level of backing for even bigger rewards. I picked out some of my favorite campaigns (and rewards) to help save you the search.
