Community Spotlight: MotivDeals Lands Partnership with LakePoint Sports

What is MotivDeals Fundraising?

MotivDeals fundraising is the digital version of those plastic fundraising deal cards and booklets that organizations sell to local residents in order to raise money. The old way was to sell a physical deal card or booklet with deals on them, requiring the customer to physically keep the card on them in order to redeem. But now, MotivDeals introduces the sales of memberships to local residents that allows people to receive local deals through their smart phone.

Recently, MotivDeals Fundraising has developed a great partnership with LakePoint Sports!

What is LakePoint Sports?

LakePoint Sports is well on its way to becoming one of the world’s largest and most exceptional destinations for travel sports. With over 1,400 acres of land nestled near the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, LakePoint will offer state-of-the-art sports venues. With nearly five million square feet of special amenities including themed retail, onsite hotels, restaurants, ziplines, water parks and many more attractions, there’s sure to be enough fun for the entire family.

What Do Atlanta Startups Need?

At 22TechPark, we are working to build an incubator that will help companies successfully launch their business. While we provide a place for entrepreneurs to flourish within an environment that is conducive to teamwork, sharing, and execution, there come many questions and needs. Among these concerns, investment, connections, space to work, customers, and marketing prove to be the most prevalent.

Many inventors have great ideas- they have spent long, strenuous hours researching and developing their initial idea, and now they think it’s time to discuss with an engineer, developer, or customer. But, what’s next? Should you disclose or protect your idea first?  What can you do to protect your idea so that it cannot be stolen? Is a patent or trademark in your company’s near future? The process of getting trademarks or patents can be confusing and expensive. When should you file your patent applications? Is patent protection even necessary for your startup? How does one come up with a trademark? Find out these answers and more-Join us at 22TechPark this Thursday, August 13th at 12pm as our three expert panelists answer any looming questions you may have about IP and patents, and learn what it takes to become a success story in the startup world.

Final Four – Who wins: Experience, Education, Attitude or Aptitude?

With the Final Four of the NCAA basketball tournament decided, everyone is analyzing all aspects of the remaining four teams.    No one is looking closer than the odds-makers in Vegas.     Legacies will be decided, fortunes in wagers will be made or lost, and office pools around the country will be awarded to those who accurately filled in their brackets.   From 68 teams, only 4 remain, with the final two games to decide a champion.

Like many others, I picked Kentucky to win it all.   But, I only accurately picked 2 of the final four.   It is hard to know how a young athlete will perform in stressful situations.   It is even harder to predict how they will play against teams and defenses they have never seen.   For this reason, having a perfect bracket is nearly impossible, with odds of picking every winner at almost one in a billion!

New Dinosaur Discovered: Vendor-Consoliraptor

I have worked for large companies, sold to large companies, and consulted with large companies, and I am always amazed at some of the procedures, policies, and strategies they implement in the name of cost savings or efficiency. Some of these strategies last for years, if not decades, until someone with some common sense looks at the process with a different lens. Over the past few years, some of these dinosaur strategies have become more evident. New technologies have created tremendous opportunities for companies to drive innovation, enter new markets, and cut costs. Yet, these decades-old practices thwart innovation and inhibit creative managers to drive change within their organizations.

Get Jack’ed in 2015!

Throughout my career, I have started small companies and worked at large Fortune 500 companies, and in both scenarios there was a strong belief in conducting annual planning sessions to prepare for the coming year. A little over a year ago, I founded Relus Technologies, my fourth start-up, and we are now going through this same exercise. I have learned a ton in past iterations of business plans, and I will hopefully use some of this knowledge in preparing our 2015 plan.

5 Reasons Employers Should Hire Swimmers

This blog was published on Relus.com

A blog post about five reasons employers should hire tennis players recently grabbed my attention and thoughts.  While I agree (and like to hire athletes in general), I feel the qualities possessed by a competitive swimmer are even greater.   So, given the choice, hire both.   But, if you can only hire one – pick the swimmer!

Calling All Gwinnett Startups

Twenty years ago, Technology Park in Peachtree Corners was a hub for technology companies in Atlanta. Today, however, the buildings seem tired, with many sporting sale and lease signs in their windows. Occupancy rates are at an all-time low.

I am hoping for a resurgence of growth and investment in the area – led by the growth in Big Data, the Internet of Things, and Cloud Computing
