I interviewed Tom Noonan in a fireside chat at the ATDC/TAG Cap Venture Finale event on October 4th at Newell Rubbermaid. In the interview, I referenced a quote “Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determination” and asked Tom to respond. Tom shared his entrepreneurial experiences in growing ISS and Joulex. (See a full interview with Tom Noonan under the “Industry Spotlight” section of this website.)

The 2011 CapVenture Finale was the culmination of an annual six week program with almost 30 companies participating in a capitalization training program. The closing event featured pitch presentations from Pindrop, CodeGuard, Blue Mammoth Games, Nextinput, YouFinity, and GetOne Rewards. David Moeller, Codeguard CEO, made his company’s presentation and was declared the Winner of CapVenture 2011. Congratulations!
