Milestones

The last two weeks have been very, very active and full of milestones. At enistic, we’ve secured our first investors, our first resellers/installers/distributors, and–perhaps most importantly–our first clients! We still have a way to go to raise the money we need really to get this venture off the ground but this early momentum is very,Continue reading “Milestones”

Rice Baylor Merger

Blogger’s note: I no longer use the term “Redskins” but am leaving my prior references intact in the spirit of learning. What a glorious weekend for football! Not only did the Texans win, but Rice alum James Casey had some great plays! Also Peyton Manning and Brett Favre won. More than that, though, NEITHER RiceContinue reading “Rice Baylor Merger”

Beginnings and Endings

It wasn’t until I received an email a couple of hours later that concluded with “Enjoy the snow!” that I pulled my nose up out of myContinue reading “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow”

Rice Football

Blogger’s note: I no longer use the term “Redskins” but am leaving my prior references intact in the spirit of learning. And speaking of football, my Redskins weren’t the only team to do well this weekend. Saturday after the Association of Rice Alumni board meeting, I had the pleasure to attend a Rice football gameContinue reading “Rice Football”

BBQ, Blues, and Football

Yesterday was very productive. I met with a former US Deputy Secretary of Energy to discuss which companies had the most potential for global impact. He was very helpful and provided several interesting leads, especially around companies that specialize in the IT side of the energy world. Then the evening was wonderful. I sat aroundContinue reading “BBQ, Blues, and Football”
