We’re  retooling the Boulder Tech Podcast to be a platform for quick-hit-and-publish interviews w/local tech companies (and anyone really) that are refocusing their efforts to support the community during the Coronavirus crisis. We’re looking to speak with as many people as we can and release the interviews as quickly as we can turn them around.

This time out we speak with Chris Meyer, Head of Innovation at Solderworks. A few hours before we spoke on March 24th, he held a meeting to discuss the future of work spaces. We continue that conversation here.

Here are some additional and related resources and items of interest:

Our guest for Episode 59 is Ben Woods, Technical Director — North America for Holmes Solutions — the creative engineering arm of the Holmes Group, a collection of companies with over 500 employees in offices around the world — including Boulder, where Ben is based. Holmes Solutions has done all sorts of things, such as demolishing vehicles to improve road safety, testing jet packs, developing a human catapult, and more. 

In our discussion, Ben tells us about:

  • Why this little known but highly industrious company from New Zealand chose Boulder for it’s US headquarters, and how it views its relationship to the Boulder tech community  
  • Holmes’ innovative approach to developing tech platforms for easy transfer across industries and sectors — and specifically how they envision transforming their work in the adventure recreation sector (aka thrill rides) into cutting edge public transportation
  • How their new transportation solution could be the answer to many of Boulder’s traffic-related issues

This is one of 20 interviews recorded in a popup backroom studio at dojo4 during the 10th annual Boulder Startup Week. When it started in 2009, Boulder Startup Week was the first event of its kind, anywhere. Now, Startup Weeks are held around the world. It’s a great example of Boulder’s position on the leading edge of tech — and the future.

Our guest for Episode 44 is Jonathan Lamer, Founder and CEO of ThirdCo, a sustainable technology product manufacturer based in Montreal. During his first time in Boulder, Jonathan stopped by to talk about:

  • How a French-Canadian found himself at Boulder Startup Week
  • Why a founder should set out to fail big
  • The challenge of finding the right people for your mission
  • How the Montreal and Boulder entrepreneurial communities differ
  • Why Jonathan loves “the no”

Follow Jonathan on Twitter @JonathanLamer.

Episode 44 of the Boulder Tech Podcast is presented by Boulder StartUp Week Social Impact track sponsor, Popsockets.
