Making Connections, how Far Downtown Phoenix has Come, and a Podcast Appearance on Business in Arizona

Lots of new content to share out there from PADT on that is published by other people.

Two blog posts in the Phoenix Business Journal went out since the last update:

We meet fellow business people that become part of our network almost every day. At work, at dinner, and at events for our kids. Sometimes we even make connections while being driven to dinner. And those connections can pay off someday. In “Make connections wherever you can, even with your Lyft driver” I explore the impact of our more connected world.

I was at a business dinner, off on some tangent about the types of early-stage capital available in the state when I didn’t hear what my dinner companion said because the train behind him was too loud. Looking over his shoulder, past a crowd of pedestrians, I could see the Phoenix Art Museum was glowing yellow in the sunset behind the train. And then it hit me over the head – Phoenix has a real downtown now. I ponder this change in “Street side pizza, trains, and museums: downtown Phoenix, how far you have come.

We were lucky enough to be asked to participate in this great local podcast for Business in the Phoenix area. Here is the description: Eric Miller, Principal & Co-Owner at PADT, talks about product development and angel investing. PADT is a globally recognized provider of Numerical Simulation, Product Development, and 3D Printing products and services. Links can be found here:
