Phoenix Business Journal: ​For every Woz, you need a Jobs

pbj-phoenix-business-journal-logoA successful startup is often the result of how the leadership performs.  In most cases the ideal CEO doesn’t exist, and if you dig down you usually find that the company is being led by two people who compliment each other.  In “For every Woz, you need a Jobs” I look at one of the most famous, and successful such partnering and share some other examples and how to recognize and promote the ideal pairing.

Rep. Grisham Speaks on New Mexico High-Tech Job Efforts

PADT was pleased to be invited to participate in a news conference held by Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham(D, NM 1st Dist) on recent efforts to support tech jobs in New Mexico through the creation of a new Congressional Business Advisory Council.  Held at Emcore, a neighbor in the Sandia Science and Technology Park. Rep. Grisham was joined by several members of the new council to talk about how the team plans to promote businesses in New Mexico.

PADT’s very own Jeff Strain was able to attend and reports that much of what was said was encouraging and pointed towards a better focus and momentum for technology companies beyond the National Labs. Technology is  a strong business sector in the state and the council will leverage that.  He was especially encouraged by the comments made by Lisa Adkins from the BioScience Center, someone that is in the trenches working on new discoveries and growing jobs every day.

We hope to see more of this type of activity in New Mexico and applaud Rep. Grisham’s efforts in this area and wish the new council success.
