POWER PITCH

by John Jonelis

What happens when you give kids—kids gifted in math and science—a real chance to bust out with their God given talents and excel?

.

  • What if you trust them to lay their greasy little hands on equipment normally available only at elite universities?
  • What if you allow them to direct their own time?
  • What if you challenge them to construct their own goals and learn by themselves how to accomplish them?
  • What if you dare them to build real startup businesses at such a tender age?
  • And what if you throw them into a competition against a panel of critical judges from the real private equity world?

What happens? Good things! Good things happen! They happen here at IMSA – the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. I’ll give you an intimate peek at the inner works of this educational powerhouse so you can see for yourself what makes this one of the biggest success stories in the country.

Showcase – Chandra Gangavarapu

This is a high school with a serious entrepreneurship program. Many of the ideas, business models, and pitches produced here outshine what we’re accustomed to in the business world. Mere students, you say? Some of their companies have gained funding and gone to market. And many of these same students intern at real-world startups throughout Chicago.

According to Britta McKenna, Chief Innovation Officer at IN2, “Kids love to have real-world problems to actually work at. This space provides that opportunity.”

Today’s event is the grueling POWER PITCH. Each team presents its company twice before separate panels of judges—the finalists pitch three times.

.

What Do the Judges Say?

The judges are all smiles as they feed at the idea bar after the first round. Competitors get whittled down by secret ballot. I corner John Lump. He’s a colleague at Heartland Angels and a professor at DePaul where I’ve lectured at his invitation on risk profiles in private equity. See IN YOUR FACE RISK.

This a practical guy who’s knee-deep in the real world of business as VP of Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago. I can count on him for an honest opinion. Here it is verbatim:

John Lump — Judge

“I love being a judge here. Second year I’ve been doing it. And it’s exciting and a lot of fun. The enthusiasm and energy of the kids is just fantastic.”

Swelly – Tyler Stock

“I saw several interesting businesses.

  • Swelly is a temporary insurance company.
  • Blabl is a company to help students with speech disabilities.
  • Rethink Numeracy is one that helps students with Downs Syndrome learn math—a more visual approach.

Some really cool ideas here.”

Blabl – Ayan Agarwal

“Obviously these entrepreneurs are quite young. There are some still in Jr. High. You’re talking kids that are 10, 12, 13 years old and already starting businesses! At Heartland Angels, we see entrepreneurs in their 20s up to their 50s and 60s. So these kids need much more mentoring. But I think you’re going to see some business opportunities here.”

Rethink Numeracy – Akshaya Raghavan

I touch base with Moises Goldman. As I’ve said before, he’s an old hand at private equity in Chicago and a VIP here at IMSA. I’ve known him a long time, and trust what he says. He’s a guy that projects humility, but receives deference and respect.

Moises Goldman – Judge

Today Moises is bursting with exuberance and he speaks with more passion than I’ve ever seen. What he says is as intuitive and emotional as it is insightful.

“Two of these kids blew me away. The company is called Fast Exit. One brother is 12 and the other is 15. Twelve and fifteen! I looked at the father and just jokingly said to him, what is it that you do? These kids are very, bright. Very, very bright—both of them.

[Moises is talking about the Orr brothers, Joshua and Maxwell. The older brother is in 8th grade at Avery Coonley. They are each pitching their own companies today.]

“What blew me away was that they’re two brothers, so I look at the father and I just wonder, what are his challenges as a dad with these two amazing kids? Because the social environment that they have—it must be an alternative universe to the one that I’m used to—that I grew up in.”

Jim Gerry with Joshua Orr of Fast Exit

[I suggest to Moises that their home life must be very nurturing.]

“Yes, somehow. But I’m amazed. That really blew me away—that blew me away. Last year, the older boy had a drone project that was a game you could adapt to Dave and Busters in that kind of environment.”

[I recall that drone project and ask if they’re both planning to attend IMSA.]

“The 12-year old—I don’t know. The 15-year old is applying for the coming year.”

OneNote Quiz – Maxwell Orr

Today there are 17 judges at Power Pitch – Patrick Bresnahan, Dane Christianson, Moises Goldman, Joe Jordan, Sanza Kazadi, Christine Krause, Maria Kuhn, John Lump, Josh Metnick, Nancy Munro, Kelly Page, Jacob Plumber, Lance Pressl, Julia Sanberger, Chris Stiegal, Tom Voigt, Joe Zlotniki. I agreed to be an alternate and fortunately don’t get that tap on the shoulder. I want to see the whole event.

Entrepreneurship

IMSA’s entrepreneurship program is called TALENT—Total Applied Learning for Entrepreneurship—led by Dr. Carl Heine, Britta McKenna, and Jim Gerry. Jim is technically retired from the program but still volunteers his time. This is too much fun to stay away.

Heat2Heal – Sushil and Pranav Upadhyayula

At this place, students get real-life experience and opportunities to solve real-world problems and bring ideas to market. The goal is to instill the thinking patterns and mindset of an entrepreneur:

  • Develop a product
  • Form a team
  • Communicate ideas
  • Formulate a business plan
  • Protect intellectual property
  • Work your network
  • Raise funding
  • Start the business

Really? These are high school kids—some even younger. In a world of schools dominated by gangs, drugs, and fear, who would think them capable of such positive desires and accomplishments? Then I come across one of the quotes on the wall:

.

IMSA Fast Facts

  • Teaching philosophy – The Socratic approach. Self-directed learning and problem-based learning.
  • 99.8% of IMSA students attend college.
  • 70.1% pursue majors in science or math.
  • 47% of faculty is PhD.
  • Alumni hail from every district in Illinois.
  • This is the school’s 30th year.

The IN2 Entrepreneurship Center at IMSA

I snag Dr Carl Heine, as he moves between presentations. He’s director of IMSA TALENT, their entrepreneurship program. I ask him if IMSA still has a presence at 1871, the huge incubator in downtown Chicago, or if all the activity is at the new IN2 facility.

Dr. Carl Heine, Director of IMSA TALENT

“IMSA is still a member of 1871. We take our students on Wednesdays to intern at companies. They’re embedded in startup teams. We can’t teach a class that’s better than that.”

“We do it every Wednesday. 1871 is just one location. We have students at the James Jordan Foundation downtown. Three of them are interning there right now, working on summer curriculum. There are students at a variety of other spots, too.”

[“This year’s Power Pitch is better than I’ve ever seen.”]

“POWER PITCH is an event that makes people feel good about the future. I hope you feel that way as a result of your involvement.

“The top three high school teams are advancing to the Next Launch regional competition in Indianapolis on May 17. If you would like to continue to work with your favorite team as a thought partner, a mentor or more, the purpose of IN2 and TALENT is to make that happen.”

Yoda

[I decide that Carl is the Yoda of IN2. I ask him, “What other events are coming up?”]

“This has been an academy for 30 years now, so we’d like to have a celebration. We’ve put it on March 30th this year, so there’s a 30 and a 30. As part of that, we’re doing the ribbon cutting for the IN2 space, and the new science labs that are part of a capital campaign that just wrapped up as well. And we’re celebrating the accomplishments of the institution over the last 30 years.”

This is just brilliant!

IMSA trains students not to fear any subject. I noticed THEORY OF ANALYSIS on the course syllabus. Normally, that’s offered only at the university level and it’s a course that’s hated and avoided by math majors nationwide. Never be intimidated by difficult subjects.

WHIZ KIDS

You Don't Want to Compete with this Kidby John Jonelis

You don’t want to compete with this kid.  Believe me.  Just watch his intensity as he pitches his business to some of the private equity luminaries in the city.  I’m a judge at this event and try not to show my feelings of awe as he answers all the tough questions in a pressure-cooker environment without so much as a flinch.  There’s an intimidating team behind him too.  They’re all in middle school.  Middle school!

These guys offer a new white-label web browser that’s secure from hackers at WiFi hotspots.  It’s up-and-running and they’ve got the moxie to ask $100K for 15% of their company!  These are potential recruits for IMSA – the vigorous live-in statewide high school for the best and the brightest.

You don't want to compete with this kid 2

And that kid over there—the one quietly sitting in the background?  The IT department at IMSA is afraid of that one.  “Some IMSA students try to hack the system,” says Carl Heine of TALENT, “but if this kid comes to the academy, we’ll have to keep him close.  He’s the real deal.”

SecuritumFive other teams like this one pitch today and they’re all wonderful.  I’ve seen IMSA students put adults to shame but hey—this is way over the top!  Once again, the TALENT program proves that children can outperform adults in one of the toughest games in town—a grueling pursuit that demands everything you can put out and then asks for more.

I ask you—can you imagine doing that when you were in 7th or 8th grade?  At that age, a pop quiz seemed like a big deal.  I certainly had no dream of running a business back then.  What we have here is a roomful of truly extraordinary individuals coached by wonderful teachers.  I’d like to hire them to create and build the next big company.  Problem is they’re still minors.

PitchThis event is part of an intensive one-week immersion camp held at 1871—a program geared to teach what an entrepreneur goes through by personal experience.  These kids pitch real companies only 3 days into the program.  Three days to form a group, put together a business plan and prepare the pitches we hear today.  Three days!  When I look at the quality of the output, it seems impossible.  But I’m here watching it happen.  Give credit to IMSA’s selection process.  Give credit to Carl Heine, Jim Gerry, and a brilliant TALENT organization with their finely crafted template.

It’s our job as judges to challenge these kids with real business questions.  And we do.  All of them respond well.  We’re asked to rate them on specific categories, and yes, TALENT provides us with an organized matrix to keep score.  Here’s their Pitch Rubric:Judges

  • Pain Point – Do they understand and describe it clearly? Yup.
  • Market Research – Is it clear and complete? Looks that way to me.
  • Competition – Have they identified and clearly expressed their competitive advantage? Yes sir.
  • Product – Do they have a compelling prototype? A prototype? After 3 days! Hey, these kids already have working products! This ain’t your science fair back home, Chumley!
  • Business Model – What’s the go-to-market strategy? What is the likelihood it will be profitable? Chances look pretty good from here.
  • Presentation – Does it convincingly cover all the bases? Yeah. That it does.
  • Questions – Do the answers make you want to invest?

Yes, yes, and yes!  The event ends and we meet everybody.  In a moment of irrational exuberance, I hand my card to a boy and say I’d like to see him pitch to my angel group.  Forgive me.  I sometimes forget myself.  First school, then the business world.  Gotta keep those two straight.  ♦

FASCINATION OF A THOUGHT LEADER

rocket-fuel-labs-launches 2Michael Pollack of Rocket Fuel Labs

Verbatim – John Jonelis

I always enjoy the scenic water taxi ride to the Chicago Merchandise Mart where the huge high-tech incubator known as 1871 lives and breathes like a sleeping dragon in a cave full of gold.

Michael Pollack, CEO of Rocket Fuel Labs is waiting for me. His firm provides the technology to launch new companies.

Turns out, I’m in for a treat—a conversation with a genuine thought leader. Mike is a highly intelligent man exploding with enthusiasm. I get the preliminaries out of the way, then sit back and simply say:

“Tell me about Rocket Fuel Labs.”

.

Rocket Fuel Labs logo - Large

Mike – Let me take a step back and give you some background on myself and Lance Ennen, then how Rocket Fuel came together.

In my career, I’ve lived at the intersection of sales and technology. I started my first business when I was 12 or 13—I was building and selling computers. I used my mom’s credit card and bought a tremendous amount of individual pieces of hardware. This is in the early 90’s, at a time when a desktop computer is about $4,000 to $5,000.

Michael Pollack LinkedIn2

Michael Pollack

Note – Not only does Pollack organize his thoughts, they burst forth at a phenomenal rate of speed.

John I personally bought a computer for $5,000 about that time. And it seemed real pricey a year later.

Mike – Okay, so there you go. My competition, Gateway, was charging $5,000. I, as the kid down the street, was charging about $4,500. I was making great money on that. The margins were phenomenal. I was 12 years old and that was more money than I knew existed in the world, right? That was such a tremendous sum.

And I learned a fascinating lesson in my life and my career as well. I was buying all this equipment and keeping it in my room. Stacks of motherboards, processors, video cards, cases, and all the pieces. I’d say, hey, you want a new computer? I’ll build it for you and be your free tech support. It was great. It was a very good business.

But it was right around that summer when Dell said, “We’re gonna do a back-to-school special and cut the price down from $5,000 to $3,000.” My margins went completely upside down and I learned a very important lesson about managing your inventory properly. I had all this stuff that was bought at the wrong price. My prices couldn’t sustain a market, and that was the first lesson I learned about keeping as lean as possible. All those profits I made on the first five or six computers I lost on the following nine or ten. At that point I said, “Wow, this is a tough business. Michael Dell is killing me.” As a twelve-year-old, I just couldn’t compete with what he was doing in Texas and so it was an important lesson.

From there I did programming for a bit. As a kid I took things apart. Vacuum cleaners, VCRs, anything I could find. I had great parents. They gave me a tremendous amount of opportunity and I probably took advantage of it a little too much when I was younger. Maturity is recognizing your mistakes and operating within those bounds.

John – Just like Richard Feynman. As a kid, he made a business of taking apart radios and fixing them. I used to read his books to my son as bedtime stories.

MikeRichard Feynman is a personal hero! I think he’s an absolutely fascinating man. An important physicist of enormous stature. His books, Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman and What Do You Care What Other People Think both make for great reading.

Note – It seems that Pollack is not only brilliant, but well-read.

Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman

See it on Amazon

Mike – I started a number of businesses and my personality pulled me in the direction of sales but I could also understand technology. As a kid, I did everything from sell Cutco knives door-to-door to being a PC tech at Best Buy.

But my career moved into an interesting avenue. A very good family friend started a freight brokerage. If you know people that work at C. H. Robinson or Echo Global Logistics—these companies that manage the trucks that you see on the road—it’s a really big business, and it’s a business that most people don’t think about.

Consider this room. Everything gets here by truck, right? In America, the domestic trucking industry is $300 Billion.

$60 Billion—with a “B”—of that goes to domestic truckload brokers. To walk you through that world, there are about 3-4 Million full truckload shippers. These are the manufacturers who put stuff inside of trucks. Take the company that manufactures this couch, for instance.

On the other end of the equation, there’s a hundred thousand trucking companies. Ninety six percent of those companies operate 10 or less trucks. A lot of mom-and-pop outfits. There’s those big orange trucks you see on the road from Schneider or J. B. Hunt or Werner or Swift, but those big companies are actually in the minority. Only about a hundred of them.

In the middle, there’s fourteen and a half thousand brokers. Those brokers consume that $60B and effectively, those brokers are like glorified travel agents.

John – They’re routing all the trucks. Are they making all the money?

Mike – Not all of it, but a lot of it. Very little overhead. They’re doing this mostly over phones. It’s an old-fashioned travel agency model.

I started as a salesman and realized our tracking software just wasn’t very good. You need to make sure you assign the right truck and get the best price. Then when the truck is actually moving, make sure it gets from Point A to Point B. If the truck encounters an issue, it needs some way to facilitate that.

So we designed a software platform called Autobahn, which was a freight brokerage trading system. The name invoked something sexy, like a Mercedes Benz cruising down the highway at high speed when in reality we’re moving trucks around the country.

John – Did you know that the German Autobahn helped us win WWII?

Mike – Yes, it’s interesting. When you read Eisenhower’s memoirs, one of the things he’s most proud of is the Eisenhower interstate highway system, which is a direct replica—a rip-off—of what he saw in the Autobahn.

NoteOnce again, I’m taken aback by Pollack’s intellect and enthusiasm. 

JohnHe did that?

Mike – That’s correct. He saw the Autobahn and said, “Wow, the ease in which we could move through the country—the effectiveness of their mass transit system was so eye-opening…One of my first initiatives when I come back to America will be the Interstate Highway System.”

I worked on logistics for a long time and know a couple facts about the highway system that will blow your mind.

1.) The reason bridge heights are set at thirteen and a half feet, is that at the time, in the 50’s, the United States had nuclear mobile-launched missiles. That was the height at which they had to be to get under the bridge and that’s where bridge heights come from to this day in America.

2.) The other thing that was mandated was for every ten-mile stretch of highway, there had to be a one-mile strip of straight highway so in the event that airfields all got destroyed by nuclear war, we could land airplanes on the highway.

Pretty clever, actually, how they did it. It’s a really well thought out bit of technology. It’s a fascinatingly cutting-edge technology for the 50’s. It’s infrastructure. Like a platform. Like we do software now.

Think about that. What I find fascinating about logistics in particular is that good infrastructure is, effectively, a platform. And you can build on it. If you think about the highway system in this country, it provided the platform on which McDonalds could provide roadside dining. Hilton and Marriot could build massive hotel chains.

When I think about that infrastructure, I think about our business; I think about Rocket Fuel Labs.  It’s about providing technology infrastructure to allow businesses to build on. That’s where I get really excited about what we’re doing here.

Note – I don’t know how you readers feel about it, but I find this conversation fascinating and don’t want to shred a single paragraph. I’ll pick up where we left off in a future article. Verbatim.

BOYCOTT WHO?

A dear friend forwarded this powerful article to me.  It shows yet another face of the human condition–one worthy of our constant attention and diligence.  I reproduce it here.  My only addition is the familiar photo of the most brilliant man known to history.  

Albert Einstein  

 A Jewish Boycott

A short time ago, Iran’s Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khomenei urged the Muslim World to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people.

In response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his heart, offered to assist them in their boycott as follows:

“Any Muslim who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan discovered by Dr. Ehrlich, a Jew. He should not even try to find out whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test is the discovery of a Jew. If a Muslim suspects that he has Gonorrhea, he must not seek diagnosis, because he will be using the method of a Jew named Neissner.

“A Muslim who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery by a Jew, Ludwig Traube.

Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not use Novocaine, a discovery of the Jews, Widal and Weil.

If a Muslim has Diabetes, he must not use Insulin, the result of research by Minkowsky, a Jew. If one has a headache, he must shun Pyramidon and Antypyrin, due to the Jews, Spiro and Ellege.

Muslims with convulsions must put up with them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use of Chloral Hydrate.

Arabs must do likewise with their psychic ailments because Freud, father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew.

Should a Muslim child get Diphtheria, he must refrain from the “Schick” reaction which was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.

“Muslims should be ready to die in great numbers and must not permit treatment of ear and brain damage, work of Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Robert Baram.

They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio vaccine is a Jew, Jonas Salk.

“Muslims must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug against this killing disease.

Muslim doctors must discard all discoveries and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung specialist, Frawnkel, and of many other world renowned Jewish scientists and medical experts.

“In short, good and loyal Muslims properly and fittingly should remain afflicted with Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus, Diabetes, Mental Disorders, Polio Convulsions and Tuberculosis and be proud to obey the Islamic boycott.”

Oh, and by the way, don’t call for a doctor on your cell phone because the cell phone was invented in Israel by a Jewish engineer.

Meanwhile I ask, what medical contributions to the world have the Muslims made?”

The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world’s population.

They have received the following Nobel Prizes:

Literature:
1988 – Najib Mahfooz

The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims.

The Jews don’t hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants.

There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel ‘s part, the following two sentences really say it all:

‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.”

Benjamin Netanyahu: General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.

It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 65 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.

Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people. Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15)

We are not human beings going through a temporary spiritual experience.
