leave a comment »

— Spring and Fledge are co-launching FledgeX, a virtual accelerator for impact-focused companies around the world to have access to top international mentorship.

VANCOUVER, Canada /PRNewswire/ — Spring Activator and Fledge are launching FledgeX, the world’s first virtual accelerator targeted solely at impactful and mission-driven startups. This program is the first of its kind for impact-based companies and aims to increase accessibility and “good growth” for entrepreneurs in remote communities who might otherwise be unable to access quality mentorship and resources. Fledge and Spring’s mutual goal is to help entrepreneurs succeed and make a difference no matter where in the world they’re starting up.

“Spring is very excited to be working on FledgeX”, says Keith Ippel, CEO of Spring Activator. “From our experience running Kick, we’ve seen that entrepreneurs in smaller communities value access to an accelerator to grow and connect on a global scale and maximize their positive impact. Here at Spring, we’re lucky to have Vancouver’svibrant startup community to lean on and hope to spark other communities with the same spirit that has allowed us to grow so quickly.”

Within 20 years, startups have gone from a rarity only found in places like Silicon Valley or Boston to popping up in areas as remote as the Canada’s Yukon because of technology. This trend, identified in Startup Compass’ 2015 startup ecosystem report and others, is growing and the resulting ecosystems are becoming a driving economic force in communities worldwide.

Spring and Fledge understand the changes occurring, and are working to accelerate this process among impactful entrepreneurs, giving them the opportunity and resources to grow. With this program, entrepreneurs are able to gain access to Seattle and Vancouver’s vibrant communities regardless of their location or accessibility.

Says Michael “Luni” Libes, Founder of Fledge: “Our goal at Fledge is to find the best ways to empower and accelerate socially conscious entrepreneurs to do good by doing business. FledgeX is the next step beyond our in-person programs, allowing us to reach any entrepreneur anywhere in the world the Internet reaches, bringing the education and mentorship of Seattle and Vancouver to their doorsteps. Spring is a perfect partner for us in this next step based on their proven track record with Kick and our common belief that real world problems can be solved by for-profit businesses.”

FledgeX is a completely virtual acceleration program that utilizes regional facilitators to lead workshops twice per week. Workshops will include speakers and mentors sourced from Spring and Fledge’s combined international network. Our combined network of over 300 mentors have included: Ryan Spong (CEO, Foodee) and Ambrosia Humphrey (VP Talent, Hootsuite).

Spring has previously partnered with Fledge on the Kick pre-accelerator program. In addition, Kick operates in dozens of other cities around the world. Spring has graduated four in-person cohorts and two virtual cohorts, bringing the total to 65 entrepreneurs graduated, 43 companies launched, and 55 new jobs created, from Canada’s remoteYukon, down to Venezuela. This past success has driven Spring and Fledge to concentrate on “good growth” and accelerate companies looking to make a positive change in the world.

“Having the opportunity to enjoy mentorship and guidance from the team at Spring has been invaluable for us here inVenezuela“, says Jesus Peñaloza, CEO of Pago en Red. “Our current geopolitical situation doesn’t create a favorable economic climate and having an international perspective that we can rely on is crucial for our success. Thanks so much to the Spring team for helping us during Kick and beyond!”

Applications for FledgeX are open now and close August 16. The program is set to run from September 28November 16, with an anticipated seven cohorts of seven entrepreneurs each all over the world. Applicants must be mission-driven and preference is given to those with proven traction (3-12 months past launch), but we can be swayed if you can convince us you’re you’re in it to win it. In order to increase the accessibility of this program, payment will take the form of 1% of total revenue up to $2M, with $799 cash tuition due at the start of the program.

About Spring: Spring is focused on helping high growth, for-profit, purpose-driven companies create meaningful change in our world. The Spring model is an evolution of the best elements of accelerator and incubator methodologies. We support companies with a mixed offering of targeted skills and resources, access to a strong network of mentors and investors, shared workspace, and access to capital.

About Fledge: Fledge is the conscious company accelerator, providing training, guidance, and mentorship to mission-driven for-profit startups, globally.

3 Ways to Craft Compelling Content for a B2C Audience

leave a comment »

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — B2C marketers are tasked with producing quality content that tells their brand’s story, which can increase site traffic, visitors and conversions. Successful content marketing requires a focus on creating quality content, and small business owners must implement a strategy that targets content toward the right audience. Marketers that use the wrong methods that aren’t suited to key audiences risk seeing their sales plummet as a result of an ineffective content marketing strategy.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110831/NY59180LOGO

Connecting with consumers through content has never been easier, and in the latest article posted to PR Newswire’s Small Business PR Toolkit, contributing author, Steve Lazuka offers three methods of creating content that will resonate with the B2C audience.

  • Put the customer first. Serve your audience content that establishes trust and puts your customers at ease with their buying decisions. Acknowledge problems that your readers may be facing and how your products can provide a solution.
  • Use the right language. If trying to reach consumers, limit the use of industry jargon and choose your words carefully. Lazuka suggests you should walk a fine line between using technical terminology and basic explanations. Tailor the material for your target audience.
  • Tap into emotions. Storytelling is a great way to draw in readers and tapping into their emotions is key to increasing your conversions. When writing for consumers ensure you understand your reader and how they interact with the industry.

PD Pumps Market Faces Heat as Oil & Gas Industry Slumps

leave a comment »

— Persistent low oil prices continue to hamper demand for PD pumps, observes Frost & Sullivan

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — The positive displacement (PD) pumps market, which previously boomed as the oil & gas industry created abundant business opportunities, now faces challenges of growth. The hectic exploration activity in the shale gas sector has subdued and PD pumps manufacturers have begun to experience a slump in short term.

Recent analysis from Frost & Sullivan, 2014 North American PD Pumps Factbook (http://www.frost.com/nce5), finds that the market earned revenues of $2.67 billion in 2014 and estimates this to reach $3.33 billion in 2021 as the oil and global economy stabilizes in the long run.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://bit.ly/1JDrWNS

“Currently, low oil prices and sluggish growth are affecting the market,” said Frost & Sullivan Industrial Automation & Process Control Senior Analyst Anand Gnanamoorthy. “However, as oil prices and the global economy stabilize the PD pumps market is expected to experience growth in the mid and long term.”

The PD pumps market has assistance from the intensifying focus on regulations and energy efficiency. To comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration standards and to meet consumer demands, end users, particularly in the food and beverage industry, continuously invest in new equipment.

Furthermore, end users desiring higher operational excellence are integrating process machinery with central control systems for a unified plant-wide or enterprise-wide control. This effort requires advanced pumping solutions such as smart pumps, asset management and wireless intelligence.

“The revival of the chemicals and power industry has added thrust to the market’s momentum,” notedGnanamoorthy. “The opening up of end-user industries, along with concerted marketing efforts to improve product awareness, will go a long way in aiding the growth of the PD pump market.”

Frost & Sullivan Acclaims ATS International’s Proactive R&D in Creating a Robust Data Collection, Reporting, and Analysis Platform

leave a comment »

— ATS International’s ADOS solution provides customers with reliable data management platforms to support enterprise management solutions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the plant data management and quality optimization solutions market for discrete industries, Frost & Sullivan recognizes ATS International with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. ATS International’s innovative Attribute, Dimensional, Operational, and Shared (ADOS) suite, consisting of ATS Inspect, ATS Intelligence, ATS CM4D, ATS SPC, ATS BUS and ATS Shared Services, has been instrumental in improving data quality in the manufacturing environment. Its integration of product life management (PLM) with production operations to ensure cost-effective quality inspection has further cemented its value in the discrete industries.

Click here for the full multimedia experience – http://bit.ly/1VNbjbz

ATS International’s ADOS suite collects, reports, and analyzes data from diverse operations and transfers the processed information to the appropriate divisions. The unique proposition of this suite is that the collected data is analyzed and mapped across the value chain to determine the best fit to optimize production operations.

“The ADOS suite is aligned with the enterprise solution topology so that data from visual inspection, option content check, and dimensional validation on multiple products can be integrated quickly and seamlessly,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Srikanth Madapura Shivaswamy. “Unlike most solutions, it can collect and process product, equipment, and process information on a single platform.”

One of the main components of the ADOS solution, ATS Inspect, is an attribute data collection solution that addresses data management challenges in high-volume and high-mix industries. It stands out from peer solutions with its Data Collect inspection functionality, which allows the data from visual inspections to be added to a database. This action ensures that all information can be associated with the individual product and be retrieved later for analysis. ATS Inspect accepts both visual and functional data entries, and the screen layout and platform can be customized to match language, device, or workstation needs.

Furthermore, ATS International has gained a competitive edge with ATS CM4D, a single automated solution that can analyze drawings existing within in-house PLM systems. Instead of comparing the actual parts with computer-aided drawings in an isolated fashion, ATS CM4D presents dimensional data from solid models for comparison with the data from the coordinate measuring machine in real time. This helps rapidly validate the critical parts well before they are shipped from the suppliers thus making it a cost effective process.

The company has also gained significant traction in the manufacturing industry with ATS SPC, a real-time statistical process control and precision measurement system. Its drag-and-drop visual configuration and fully customizable screen make it simple to set up and use.

Meanwhile, its ATS Intelligence solution provides a systematic approach toward collecting data from various departments. Each data packet has a time stamp on it, creating a unique identity. This data is shared as processed information, such as key performance indicators (KPI) or overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), through a centralized server.

A major advantage of the ADOS suite is its multi-site role capability. ATS International has been proactive in leveraging technologies from existing enterprise solution systems to develop data management platforms that can be implemented with ease across multiple locations. This means that it can help customers maximize their production efficiencies by standardizing data collection and the analysis process across different manufacturing plants.

Overall, ADOS’ innovative and integrated intelligence functionality has won ATS Intelligence considerable appreciation from discrete industry end users.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies.

leave a comment »

— New world record achieved by Cambium Networks, breaking previous record of 243 kilometer link set by Ceragon Networks –

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. /PRNewswire/ — Cambium Networks™, a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions, has set a new world record for longest network link recorded to date. In a link test spanning from Pikes Peak, Colo. to Cheyenne, Wyo., a 245.8-kilometer or 153-mile stretch of land traversing the metropolitan area of Denver, Colo., Cambium was able to successfully demonstrate both high-definition streaming video using AXIS cameras and VoIP services across state lines.

Two parallel links were set up using the PTP 650 and PTP 700 products, demonstrating the signal strength and quality of both offerings. In an area where cellular phone service is almost nonexistent, Cambium Networks was able to set up and deploy the network link in under one hour. Using LinkPlanner, a Cambium product allowing for quick and easy PTP and PMP network design, teams were able to design and deploy a link providing VoIP and high-definition streaming video communication across rugged terrain and through high-density metro areas, without interruption.

“At Cambium we have a culture of challenging ourselves. We decided to set up the longest point to point link ever established in the world, set it up quickly, and added a noisy metro center right in its path. We did it flawlessly showcasing high definition video and VoIP,” said Atul Bhatnagar, president and CEO, Cambium Networks. “Our goal is to provide connectivity across all terrains, delivering universal reach for our customers, and their networks.”
