Welcome to TiEcon Southwest 2017

Meet Parag Havaldar | 2017 Academy Award Oscar

How does the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences let Parag Havaldar know he’s won an Oscar for Technical Achievement? You have to come to TiEcon Southwest to find out the answer...

Raised in India, Parag came to the U.S. to attend graduate school at USC where he earned a doctorate in computer vision, and also serves on its faculty to teach a graduate course in multimedia. Parag currently works at Blizzard Entertainment, which has created franchises such as the World of Warcraft and Overwatch.

It took a lot of work from a lot of people,” Parag said of the awarded facial animation technology for his pioneering work at Sony Pictures Imageworks. “It is humbling to get that respect (from the Academy), but at the same time, a lot of other people continue to work on different, perhaps more purposeful and meaningful things than making movies, and receive no recognition.

Come listen to Parag as he inspires us with his journey form Obscurity to Oscars, and leaves us energized and stimulated with the possibility of creating digital personalities in other fields of entertainment and communication.

Remember the First Rule of Marketing that I shared last time:

Your customers and prospects are not interested in you or your company. They are not even interested in your product. They are only interested in solving their current particular problem as they perceive it, or generally in meeting their own perceived needs towards their own felt desires." 

The key reason for making this change was this epiphany of how oGoing can help small businesses and professionals find solutions to their needs. 

As 2013 comes to a close, our thoughts gather around family, friends, and those business acquaintances that helped us along our journey every day of the year. On behalf of the oGoing team, I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to you for your support and belief over the past year. 

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas! 

Sincere regards, 
Sanjay Dalal 
founder / CEO, oGoing

Ogoing and Sanjay Dalal mentioned in "Startup America" initiative Small Business Administration Report

"I attended the "Startup America" event on May 12 at Stanford Law School. This event, organized by President Obama and the White House, provided a great forum for leaders, White House and SBA officials, entrepreneurs and community to connect and share our thoughts on growing and fostering startups and entrepreneurship in USA. I am happy to share that I was mentioned in the weekly news update by Small Business Administration - San Francisco District Office. I also submitted my idea for growing 1 million new entrepreneurs in USA." - Sanjay Dalal, CEO / Founder, Ogoing Inc., Small Business Social Network

‘Startup America’ Initiative Comes to Silicon Valley, the U.S. Startup Capital

STANFORD, CA - “Startup America,” the White House initiative to celebrate, inspire and accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship throughout the nation, made a stop in the heart of the nation?s startup capital for high tech yesterday during an afternoon event at Stanford University.

“Stanford University is a great place for the birth of companies,” said Stanford Law Professor Dan Siciliano, who welcomed 100 entre-preneurs, small business owners, business leaders and government officials to the campus during opening remarks. “The folks who started HP, Google and Yahoo, among others, all went to school here and started companies in the area. This is an exciting time and an exciting place to be right now.”

The coordinated public-private effort of “Startup America” brings together an alliance of the country?s most innovative entrepreneurs, corporations, universities, foundations and other leaders working in convert with a wide range of federal agencies to dramatically increase the prevalence and success of America?s entrepreneurs.

“America?s story has been forged in large part by entrepreneurs who have against great odds created innovative products and services that have changed the world and created millions of jobs,” said Steve Case, the founder of AOL who was appointed by President Obama to chair the “Startup America: Reducing Barriers” initiative. “Our nation once again needs to look towards these creative risk-takers to unleash the next wave of American innovation.”

SBA's Sean Greene, who heads the agency's SBIC program, moderated opening comments on the state of entrepreneurship. Panelists included Peggy Hamburg, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; Teresa Rea, deputy director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; Ginger Lew, a senior advisor to the National Economic Council; Canice Wu, president of Plug and Play Tech Center; and Joe Grundfest, a Stanford law professor and the former commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“Attending an event like this allows me to gain an insight into the thinking of my fellow entrepreneurs and policy makers,” said Sanjay Dalal, CEO and founder of OGoing Inc., a small business social network site. “I want to share some of my ideas with them and see what they think.”

Jose Corona, who heads the Oakland-based Inner City Advisors, said the people in attendance at the Stanford event like to shape success and meet challenges.
“Entrepreneurs focus on action,” observed Corona. “We can talk all day about problems but entrepreneurs and small business owners really want answers on fixing problems.”

Benjamin Abram, an associate with The Westly Group, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, had praise for the government's role in business.

“Many of our nation's most innovative companies have arisen from federal programs like the SBIC,” said Abram, “and so many new jobs have been the result of those investments.”

Noted Congressman Mike Honda's deputy director in San Jose, Mike Nguyen, “We?re glad "Startup America" stopped in Silicon Valley. We want a chance to shape public policy and help the economy grow.”
