While the VC market for tech startups continues to rebound from the 2016 slump, another less-known funding option is trending: equity crowdfunding, the online offering of private company securities to people for investment. When “regulation crowdfunding” went live in mid-2016, it created an emerging market of enormous opportunity because now, anyone can invest in startup equity. http://ow.ly/yvXt30gBra9

Regardless of the industry you're in, it's probably a given that HR isn't the first place you look to save your company money. But think about it—from workflow to reward systems to recruitment, staffing, retention, and replacement—there's a lot that HR can do to help the bottom line. And, through technology especially, the next decade promises a revolution in HR capabilities. http://ow.ly/bUXh30fYdvX

There is a strong data-driven case to spend virtually 100 percent of our finite economic development resources – time, talent and treasure – on traded-sector, innovation economy companies producing goods and/or services. From startups to breakout startups that hit the "hockey stick" in terms of rapid net new employment numbers, and then very large, decades-old innovation companies.

When you look at sporting achievements over the last decades, it seems like humans have gotten faster, better and stronger in nearly every way. Yet as David Epstein points out in this delightfully counter-intuitive talk, we might want to lay off the self-congratulation. Many factors are at play in shattering athletic records, and the development of our natural talents is just one of them. #TEDtalkTuesday http://ow.ly/q9Yn30fW3jv
