What back office system are you using?

Restaurateurs have been running business the same way for the last 20 years without taking advantage of today’s technological solutions available to save the restaurateurs several hundred hours a month, avoiding erroneous data entry, and missing out on seamless integration with web based accounting and online marketing software.

Robert,

I would encourage you to take a look at our website at www.1oddduck.com. After that I'd be willing to provide you with whatever information is needed on your end.

Robert,

I really appreciate your quick response. Our group is currently working on a start-up having to do with a green building concept. We recently closed our friends and family round of funding. Our current business model calls for an additional raise of $2 million. We are currently looking at private equity but needless to say it is not an easy process. With us still being in the pre-revenue stage it makes things even harder.

What would you suggest would be the best way to tackle this issue? While we haven't been at this long it's important that we keep our first mover advantage. Any suggestions you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Rob

Robert,

I'd be interested in bouncing a few questions off of you in regards to finance. If you have a few moments to provide some mentor ship it would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Rob

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
