According to a recent study published by Oxford University, 47 percent of American jobs could be lost to automation in the next 20 years. Artificial intelligence (AI) is here and when it comes to innovating and disrupting the workforce, robots have become an increasing part of the conversation. But it’s rare to hear experts sound off on AI moving into white-collar professions.

This week on In Process: Conversations about Business in the 21st Century, hosts Evelyn Ashley and John Monahon of Trusted Counsel revisit a previously aired podcast from June, 2016. They were joined by Dan O’Hara, (former) Senior VP of Digital Workplace at Avanade to have a conversation about AI. O’Hara has been in the software and technology industry for more than 25 years. Dan is a thought leader on the use of AI in business—including the concept of a robo-boss—and has presented on the topic in various venues as well as experienced the phenomenon for himself during a driving stint with Uber.

During the course of the podcast you will learn about:

  • The digital workplace and its solutions
  • Artificial intelligence capabilities
  • How data and analytics lead to AI
  • Thoughts about AI for smaller organizations

You know this child. The neighbor’s daughter or son selling lemonade on the corner during a hot summer day. A daughter who charges siblings interest to borrow money or loan them possessions. The budding artist who sells her artwork to friends at school. Meet the next generation of entrepreneurs―who may very well change the world as we know it.  

The rate of startup growth has increased quite meaningfully in the last year. Reports indicate entrepreneurship is alive and well across the United States, with regions of start-up innovation emerging across the country at an increasing rate. There are a growing number of success stories that debunk the myths that you have to live in Silicon Valley or have to be…well…“old” to sow your entrepreneurial oats with success.

Where there was once a lack of resources to educate and promote entrepreneurship among young people several years ago, a strong passionate community has quickly arisen to embrace, mentor and fund our next-gen entrepreneurs.

This week in In Process (Trusted Counsel's bi-weekly podcast show), we speak with Monica Lage, executive director at Break into Business, a non-profit organization dedicated to training entrepreneurs age 9-17; and Professor Richard Linowes, management educator at American University in Washington, D.C.

During the course of the podcast “Children Who Mean Business: Developing Next-Gen Entrepreneurs,” parents, investors and business mentors will learn:   

  • The benefits of educating children on real-world business and entrepreneurship
  • How to recognize a child’s propensity for entrepreneurship
  • Resources available to promote entrepreneurship, from grade school to college
  • Characteristics of the successful entrepreneurs

Stream the conversation with Monica and Richard in the player below to learn how to best foster entrepreneurship in young people. You can also subscribe to In Process on iTunes to receive this episode as well as future updates from the show on your smartphone.

The real key to growing more venture opportunities is getting more at bats. A little more than 10 years ago, the majority of the most “solid deals” were generally confined to the West Coast. Think Silicon Valley. However, as that investment marketplace continued to grow more and more competitive with each passing day, venture capitalists started to turn their attention to second-tier innovation cities. But that doesn’t mean they’re second-class citizens. These cities are building world-class companies.                                                     

Within the last decade, the Southeast as a whole has seen a maturation within its start-up ecosystem. Investments in seed- and traction-stage companies are flowing, and there appears to be a clear focus on building the necessary infrastructure to support funding to grow global enterprises.

For example, in a city like Atlanta, your batting average as an investor is going to be higher, but maybe the magnitude of your wins is not going to be as large. However, if the region’s growth and investment opportunities continue on the same upward trajectory, the home runs will quickly begin to tally.

This week in In Process (Trusted Counsel's bi-weekly podcast show), Mark Buffington, CEO at BIP Capital, one of the premier investment firms in the Southeastern United States, discusses:

  • The firm’s inaugural “The State of Startups in the Southeast™” report
  • Why investments are shifting to later stages
  • How the venture asset class is democratizing
  • Best practices for entrepreneurs and investors to work together
  • The qualitative and quantitative assets needed to build a sustainable, market-leading innovation hub

Stream the conversation with Mark in the player below to learn about entrepreneurial growth and future investment opportunities not only in Atlanta but also throughout the Southeast.
