Blazent can be the business-oriented analysis platform for IT. We’re committed to:

    • Leading in source adaptability and integration
    • Certifying and improving IT management data quality
    • Providing most flexible business analytics for IT
    • Driving optimization of assets and resources
    Putting the Bottom Line at the Top of the List "Running IT like a business" has become cliché for one simple reason: it's absolutely necessary. With a taxed IT workforce and increasing responsibilities for new initiatives, IT organizations have to investigate every approach that will help them become more productive and offer a broader range of services to their internal and external clients. Every major IT decision has to build in cost and resource accountability, risk management, and adaptability. In other words, bottom-line thinking has permeated across every level of the organization. The challenge is determining what the bottom line should be measuring and if the data is actually real. Are the IT investments under contract actually in place? Which departments are over-invested? Which need more help? It's an intimidating and daunting truth to try and get to. To corral this knowledge, you have to assemble data and metrics from a variety of sources and moving beyond operational and tactical issues. Blazent puts IT into a business-oriented perspective. With proven integration and cleansing technologies, a reliable data set can be tapped with confidence. The Blazent platform lets you leverage advanced analytics to consistently measure and track the real bottom line. It’s not just about answers to questions you have today.

    Lotus Development Corporation

    Lotus Development Corporation

    Lotus Development, an IBM subsidiary that does business as Lotus Software, makes software that helps business people collaborate across corporate networks. Its main offering is communication and collaboration platform Lotus Notes. Other products include messaging applications (Domino), desktop office productivity tools (Organizer), and Web-based learning software (Virtual Classroom). The company also offers consulting, support, and training services. Lotus sells its products directly and through partners and distributors.

    Lotus was founded in April 1982 by 32-year-old Mitchell D. Kapor, whose previous experience included writing two business programs for VisiCorp, an early personal computer software company: VisiTrend, which covered statistics, and VisiPlot, a program for creating business charts. Kapor made $500,000 on the spreadsheet before VisiCorp bought him out for $1.7 million. Setting his sights on a spreadsheet that translated numbers into graphs, Kapor joined forces with Jonathan Sachs, a programmer who had already envisioned a new spreadsheet and was looking for someone to help him market it. Sachs spent the next ten months writing Lotus 1-2-3 in assembly language for the IBM personal computer. Aside from the graphics, Kapor and Sachs concentrated on making 1-2-3 a fast recalculator. They took advantage of the new personal computers (PCs) with 256K of memory, which enabled the software to far exceed the spreadsheet capabilities of the similar VisiCalc.

    Silver Peak Systems

    Silver Peak Systems

    WAN acceleration reduces the amount of traffic sent across the Wide Area Network (WAN) and delivers information locally whenever possible.  This improves the costs associated with application delivery – from staffing, infrastructure and facility costs to expenditures in application software and WAN bandwidth.  In addition, WAN acceleration protects investments in business critical applications by ensuring that they meet end user performance objectives, and it minimizes risk of exposure by improving the performance and reliability of data backup, replication and recovery.  As a result, WAN acceleration provides an extremely rapid return on investment, plus the intangible benefit of increased end user productivity and unsurpassed IT satisfaction. There are several areas where enterprises can benefit from WAN acceleration, which include:

    • Improve the Performance and Reliability of Disaster Recovery - Disaster recovery can be particularly difficult to achieve across a Wide Area Network (WAN).  For one, backup, replication and recovery involve the transfer of entire volumes of data, which require a significant amount of WAN bandwidth.  In addition, many business continuity tasks react poorly when in the presence of high latency, resulting in application timeouts and subsequent database synchronization problems.
    WAN acceleration overcomes these challenges by reducing the amount of data sent across the WAN during the backup, replication, and restore processes, and delivering information locally whenever possible to accelerate application response time.  In addition, TCP acceleration and Quality of Service (QoS) help overcome other bandwidth and latency challenges that often plague disaster recovery initiatives.
    • Improve Application Performance across the WAN - There are inherent limitations associated with Wide Area Networks that make it difficult to deliver business critical applications to remote and branch offices.  Bandwidth is limited and costly to provide, latency occurs when communication is taking place over long geographic distances, and network congestion can lead to packet loss.  The back-off mechanisms incorporated within TCP, coupled with the “chatty” behavior of common application protocols, such as CIFS, further exacerbate the situation. The result is poor application response time in many enterprise WAN environments.  By overcoming these limitations, WAN acceleration can improve employee productivity and protect investments in business critical applications while save on ongoing support costs and WAN bandwidth expenditures.
    • Facilitate Data Center Consolidation - According to recent Computerworld and Ziff Davis surveys, over 80% of enterprises are either exploring branch office infrastructure consolidation projects, or have already taken steps towards this goal.  By facilitating the centralization of servers and storage, WAN acceleration can save a significant amount of money in infrastructure costs, software investments, WAN bandwidth, and day-to-day operational expenditures. 
    The Market In a recent Ziff Davis survey, 94% of enterprises said that they are experiencing one or more major challenges in deploying applications across the WAN. Furthermore, when it comes to business continuity, 83% of enterprises have a goal of completing backup/replication in less than 5 hours, yet only 40% are actually achieving this goal.  These problems are only getting worse due to an enormous increase in the volume of data that is being protected.  See Info Center & Educational Resources. The application delivery market is expanding rapidly to address these and other needs of distributed enterprises. According to Taneja Group, this market is epected to grow at a 50% compound annual growth rate through the next three years, exceeding several billion dollars by 2010.. The Technology Silver Peak offers a premier platform for WAN acceleration.  This is achieved leveraging the following innovative technology components:
    •  Network memory™ - the industry’s leading solution for disk based data reduction. Network Memory™ uses advanced fingerprinting technology to inspect all WAN traffic and stores a local instance of information in an application independent data store at the appropriate enterprise location. 
    The local instance is transparently populated based on day-to-day usage, containing a subset of the enterprises working data set that is most relevant to each location.   Each piece of information is stored only once per location, enabling Silver Peak appliances to hold weeks or months worth of data.  Network memory examines outbound packets to see if a match exists in the local instance at the destination location.  If a match exists, then the duplicate information is not sent across the WAN and instructions are sent to deliver the data locally.  If the data has been modified, only the delta is transmitted across the WAN, maximizing bandwidth utilization and application performance

    Network Memory™ reduces the amount of information that is traversing a WAN by several orders of magnitude and enables information to be delivered with LAN-like performance, making it an extremely effective tool when delivering an application across a distributed enterprise. 

    • Compression:  The Silver Peak solution supports advanced cross-flow payload and header compression.  Cross-flow payload compression ensures that the transmission of data across the WAN is as efficient as possible by eliminating redundant information.   Header compression significantly reduces the overhead inherent to flows of small packets, as is the case with Voice over IP.
    • Quality of Service (QoS):  Silver Peak NX Series appliances supports a variety of QoS techniques, including advanced queuing and scheduling, as well as per application policy based decision–making and application tagging.  Silver Peak’s advanced QoS capabilities enable enterprises to deploy and prioritize a wide variety of business critical applications, ensuring that each gets the network resources it needs.
    • Latency and loss mitigation – The Silver Peak solution uses protocol acceleration techniques, such as window size adjustment and selective acknowledgements to compensate for poor performance on high latency links.  Moreover, the Silver Peak solution employs adaptive Forward Error Correction, which adds a small amount of redundant information to the payload so that lost packets can be easily recovered at the destination with minimal impact on performance. Silver Peak dynamically adjusts the FEC overhead in response to changing link conditions for maximum effectiveness in environments with packet loss.
    • Secure Content Architecture –Silver Peak NX Series appliances protect all locally-stored and transmitted information from physical and network-level security breaches using the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and IPsec tunneling.  Data encryption is done in hardware on the NX Series appliances to ensure maximum performance.
    The Company Founded in 2004, Silver Peak is a privately held company that improves backup, replication and recovery between data centers and facilitates branch office server and storage centralization by improving application performance across the Wide Area Network (WAN).  The company’s award winning NX appliances deliver exceptional performance improvements with unprecedented security and scalability across all enterprise applications, including data replication, backup, file transfers, email, web and real-time applications such as Citrix and VoIP.  Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, Silver Peak is funded by Artis Capital Management, Benchmark Capital, Duff Ackerman and Goodrich, and Greylock Partners.

In 1996, the target customer was the mobile professional. When this user base was not expanding as fast as desired, a free Visto Beta service was opened to anyone by summer 1997, with the first "Commercial Release" in April 1998, when functionality and services above the baseline were offered for a fee. Customer growth increased, but never generated profitable revenue stream. Consumer services were terminated circa 2002, when Visto returned focus to OEM and corporate customers. In 1998, Visto was in talks with Palm Computing, and Wireless Knowledge (a Qualcomm-Microsoft joint venture). Visto partnered with Geocities before Geocities was acquired by Yahoo. In 2003, Visto bought push email solutions business from

    3Jam

    3Jam

    The 3jam Story Text messaging is great, but getting everyone looped in can be a drag. Our founders quit complaining, took action, and started 3jamming! Andy Jagoe and Enlai Chu wanted to use text messaging to do more than just 1:1. They wanted to send messages to a group of friends, have everyone know who got it, and be able to reply all. In other words, basic things to enable a more flexible, freestyle means of communicating. When they looked around, it was clear - they'd have to build it themselves. They spent 2005 developing this new way to text message and called it 3jam. Why 3jam? Well, everybody knows that in a band it takes at least three people to really get a jam going. They chose the name 3jam for this and many other reasons: it's easy to say, spell, and remember, plus it is easy to enter on a mobile phone. When 3jam launched, they discovered two things: the first is that people really love the service, the second is that 3jamming is an entirely new way to communicate. Nothing else available today comes close (this includes voice calls, email, mobile email, IM, mobile IM, and push to talk). Start a 3jam and see for yourself! 3jam is proud to be funded by NEA.

    GlycoMimetics

    GlycoMimetics

    The mission of GlycoMimetics, Inc. ("GMI") is to develop novel small molecule therapeutics using a specialized platform technology based upon the roles that carbohydrates play in important biological processes. The company believes that carbohydrate mimics ("glycomimetic" compounds) represent an important new class of drugs. GMI is positioned to lead this emerging field. The company so far has identified three types of novel and proprietary compounds with potential therapeutic utility. One is a class of anti-inflammatory compounds which have been shown to reduce key measures of inflammation in several animal models; the second is a novel anti-infective which has been shown to reduce virulence of Pseudomonas; the third is a class of biologically active compounds with potential in the treatment or prevention of complications of diabetes or atherosclerosis.

    GMI has proprietary compounds that inhibit binding of E-, P-, and L-selectin, a key early step in the inflammatory process leading to leukocyte adhesion and recruitment to inflamed tissue. Selectin binding has been shown to be involved in most, if not all, disease processes that involve inflammation. A potent pan-selectin inhibitor would have the potential to address many major market opportunities. GMI is currently exploring the potential of its lead pan-selectin inhibitor to treat vaso-occlusive crises of sickle cell disease. The company also plans to explore additional indications that present further opportunities, including myocardial infarction and pulmonary inflammation.

    GMI has extensive data demonstrating the ability of its proprietary compounds to inhibit selectin binding, both in static assays and under conditions simulating blood flow. In addition, several compounds have been tested in animal models. These have been shown to limit inflammatory cell adhesion and migration and to affect other disease-related endpoints in animal models. A lead compound has recently been selected for this program, and additional testing is underway toward a goal of filing an IND and initiating human clinical trials. A pre-IND meeting with the FDA is expected in May 2007.

    A second opportunity developed by GMI is to treat or prevent infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacterium responsible for increasing numbers of infections which are proving refractory to treatment with antibiotics. This is a critical unmet need in a number of patient populations. Cystic fibrosis patients are chronically colonized by Pseudomonas, and the infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients. Pseudomonas is also difficult to treat in other patients, including those who develop pneumonia while on ventilators and those who suffer from burns or from urinary tract infections associated with long term catheterization. GMI has developed a proprietary lead compound (GMI-1051) that inhibits key proteins involved in Pseudomonas infection and virulence. Specifically, the compound inhibits bacterial adhesion and limits bacterial cytotoxicity. In pulmonary infections, data suggest that GMI-1051 may also restore ciliary beat which is inhibited by Pseudomonas, thus enhancing clearance. GMI's objective in this program is to develop a drug that would be used in conjunction with antibiotics against chronic infections which have failed to respond to antibiotic treatment.

    GMI has also identified a third opportunity based upon E-selectin specific antagonists. The company is exploring this approach to developing drug candidates that could be used to treat or prevent complications of diabetes or atherosclerosis.

    GMI was founded through the acquisition of assets and expertise of a predecessor company, GlycoTech. GlycoTech developed technology to identify and screen carbohydrate mimics initially through a collaboration with Ciba-Geigy (later Novartis), and then independently. In addition, GlycoTech's screening capabilities were contracted to Wyeth over a two year period. Assets acquired from GlycoTech include key intellectual property rights, to which GMI has added during its first two years of operation. The company currently owns or has rights to 15 issued U.S. patents as well as additional pending patent applications.

    GlycoMimetics has raised a total of $25 million in two rounds of venture financing.  The rounds were lead by New Enterprise Associates with participation from Alliance Technology Ventures, Anthem Capital, PTV Sciences, the Novartis Venture Fund, and the State of Maryland.  GMI anticipates using this funding to bring its anti-inflammatory program into early stage clinical development.    The company also intends to continue advancing its Pseudomonas program through late pre-clinical development, and to design and synthesize biologically active molecules against other targets.

    The company's Chief Executive Officer is Rachel King, former CEO of Genetic Therapy, Inc., and former Senior Vice President of Novartis Corporation. GMI's Chief Scientific Officer and Vice President of Research is John Magnani, Ph.D., who founded and led GlycoTech and is a well-known and well-respected leader in the field of glycobiology. GMI's Vice President of Clinical Development is Helen Thackray, MD, FAAP. Dr. Thackray is an experienced clinical development executive who held the same position at BioSynexis Corporation.

    Rachel King and John Magnani each hold a seat on The company's Board of Directors, which also includes: M. James Barrett, Ph.D. (Chair), General Partner, New Enterprise Associates; Michael Henos, General Partner, Alliance Technology Ventures; William Gust, Managing General Partner, Anthem Capital Management; Franklin Top, MD, Senior Vice President of MedImmune Ventures; and John J. Baldwin, Ph.D., President Vitae Pharmaceuticals and a 33-year veteran of Merck.

    Supernus Pharmaceuticals

    Supernus Pharmaceuticals

    Headquartered in Rockville, MD, Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (formerly Shire Laboratories) is a specialty pharmaceuticals company that has a broad portfolio of proven and patented drug delivery technologies. Among its key technologies are ProScreen® and OptiScreen® for lead selection and formulation optimization, Microtrol®, Solutrol® and EnSoTrol®, its oral controlled release technologies, and AvertSM, its reduced abuse potential technology. Supernus will focus on developing differentiated products for targeted specialty therapeutic areas on its own and in partnership with other pharmaceutical companies. The company's portfolio of technologies covers the areas of:
    1. Predictive oral bioavailability evaluation using ProScreen®, ProPhile® and RADARSM
    2. Oral bioavailability enhancement including solubility enhancement, permeation enhancement, and efflux and protease protection. The OptiScreen® technology platform is designed to select enhancers and build novel formulations (ie: Emutrol™ to enhance oral bioavailability
    3. Oral controlled release including Microtrol®XR, Microtrol®PR, Microtrol®DR, Solutrol®, and EnSoTrol®, all of which are proven and patented technologies
    4. Reduced abuse potential via application of Avert for products containing DEA scheduled substances
    The pharmaceutical marketplace continually reinforces its preference for the convenience of orally administered products. In fact, over 70% of all pharmaceutical products are administered via the oral route. The advent of high throughput discovery techniques has taken drug discovery to new heights and has increased the number of drug candidates but has done little to address the inherent need for candidates to be orally administered. Supernus' ProScreen®, ProPhile®, RADARSM and OptiScreen® programs are comprised of proprietary techniques for identifying and overcoming potential barriers to oral administration. This enables development of promising candidates that may otherwise be abandoned and optimization of delivery for known entities. ProScreen® is a predictive screen for candidates that warrant oral delivery; ProPhile® is a suite of in silico modeling tools that enables multivariate analysis and PK prediction; and OptiScreen® is a technology for formulation optimization leading to oral bioavailability enhancement. Many candidates also require customized release profiles in order to more effectively address the indication of interest or minimize unwanted side effects that may be related to Cmax or patient to patient variability. Supernus possesses an array of proven and patented controlled release technology platforms to address the specific need of the molecule. More specifically, Microtrol®XR, Microtrol®PR, Microtrol®DR, Solutrol®, and EnSoTrol® provide Supernus’ partners access to technologies in the three technological categories for oral controlled release. The broad based array of technologies makes Supernus Pharmaceuticals the leader in oral controlled release while also maximizing its partners’ chance of success. RADARSM is a platform recently launched by Supernus Pharmaceuticals that compliments its existing technology platforms. When evaluating whether a molecule is a viable candidate for oral controlled release it is important to know the degree to which it is absorbed along the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract. A significant number of compounds possess divergent absorption profiles in various segments of the gastrointestinal tract, thus increasing the complexity or completely precluding development of a controlled or extended release dosage form. It is of substantial value to determine relative bioavailability of a molecule by region of the gastrointestinal tract before initiating a fully integrated development program for a controlled or extended release dosage form. Supernus created AvertSM and RADARSM as a platform to reduce abuse potential of formulations designed to deliver scheduled substances. AvertSM and RADARSM’s mini-tablet or multi-particulate construct makes the abuse-resistant formulation an incremental application to existing products or can be designed into a new formulation. AvertSM and RADARSM uses a combination of malodorous agents, coloring agents, and precipitants. Multiple patents have been filed for AvertSM and RADARSM. Supernus uses industry-accepted excipients and designs formulations and dosage forms, which can be scaled-up and manufactured with conventional equipment. A summary of Supernus’ drug delivery technologies and the formulation challenges they are designed to overcome is summarized in the following table.

    Nanochip

    Nanochip

    Founded in 1996 by Tom Rust, Nanochip is a fabless semiconductor company that is developing a range of removable storage chips that can be used in consumer electronics products such as digital cameras, cell phones, PDA’s, etc. as well as laptop computers and fast servers.  The storage chips that are in development at Nanochip are based upon the technology of writing domains in phase-change media with current passed through an array of atomic force probe tips in contact with the media.  Either the media or the tip array can be moved with micro-mechanical (MEMs) movers to write, read, and erase bits on the media that are in the range of 10 to 20 nanometers in size. The benefit of the Nanochip technology is that their storage chips are not dependent on the limits of lithography.  The recorded bits are defined by the tip/media interface, whereas the chip itself is made with older and much less expensive lithography tools.  The media itself has been shown to support domains as small as 5 nanometers which in the future could lead to 100 GB individual dies or storage chips. Nanochip has partnered with several large companies to help in our product development and we also use the expertise of several well known experts in atomic force probe tips and phase change media at major universities.  Nanochip licenses the phase change media from Ovonyx, Inc. in Michigan.

    BioCryst Pharmaceuticals

    BioCryst Pharmaceuticals

    BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. designs, optimizes and develops novel small-molecule pharmaceuticals that block key enzymes involved in cancer, cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases, and viral infections.

    BioCryst uses structure-based drug design, which incorporates multiple scientific disciplines including biology, crystallography, medicinal chemistry and computer modeling, in order to most efficiently develop new therapeutic candidates.

    BioCryst's Approach to Building its Product Pipeline BioCryst designs drug candidates using detailed knowledge of the structures of active sites of targeted enzymes. The active site of an enzyme is the area into which a chemical or biological molecule fits to initiate a biochemical reaction. Enzymes make ideal drug targets as they mediate biochemical processes along disease pathways, are relatively easy to crystallize, and have small active sites. BioCryst aims to license or design compounds that will fit in the active sites of enzymes and thereby interfere with the progression of disease. Using this approach, the company has successfully both licensed and designed product candidates for cancer, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases and viral infections.

    Catalytic

    Catalytic

    Company Vision Electronic design starts with ideas: how to best transmit gigabytes of data through the air, how to decode that data to display sharp motion video on a large screen and many more. While there are numerous physical challenges realizing these ideas in silicon, there are many opportunities to help the algorithm developers - the idea creators. Algorithm developers create the key differentiation for many electronic products; their creations drive product development. Due to its scientific nature, algorithm development is often separate from the rest of the product development organization. It has its own development timeline, tool flow, and methodology. Because algorithm development is where electronic design begins, tools in this area have the highest potential for impact on many end products. Algorithm developers create the mathematical recipes that enable ideas to become reality. Their primary vehicle for this task is MATLAB®, by The MathWorks. Users of MATLAB love the interpreted vector language and powerful visualization capabilities for algorithm exploration. This higher level programming abstraction is their lingua franca; it matches the abstraction at which they think about problems - mathematical equations. However, the power of MATLAB is also its weakness: its interpreted nature slows simulation speeds, and its abstractness limits its use to algorithm developers, not product groups. As a result, developers are often forced to temporarily freeze algorithm changes and manually translate their algorithms into C-code, a more efficient language that is pervasive throughout the organization. Catalytic provides products that automate this process and not only free algorithm developers from mundane error-prone tasks, but also benefit the entire organization by letting the idea creators create more.

    ALSIUS (Latin translation for "Cool") is the worldwide leader in intravascular thermal regulation technology. The lack of an effective method of controlling core patient temperature was the impetus for the development of ALSIUS' proprietary temperature control therapies for critically ill patients. Time For A New Approach Intravascular cooling technology represents a novel approach to controlling temperature. Conventional temperature management therapy involves the use of surface methods including ice packs and cooling and warming blankets. These methods are primitive, labor-intensive, difficult to control and often ineffective. ALSIUS Intravascular Thermal Regulation products allow caregivers the ability to manage core body temperature more effectively and efficiently.

    3ware

    3ware

    3ware was an American electronics company founded in February 1997 by Mitch Altman, J. Peter Herz and Jim McDonald. In April 2004, Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) acquired 3ware for $150 million in cash and became a AMCC product line brand (manufacturing RAID controllers for Serial Attached SCSI, Serial ATA, and Parallel ATA devices). 3ware (also referred to as "AMCC Storage") then became a product brand name of AMCC storage offering, and the product line was managed by Russell Johnson. AMCC / 3ware's initial business proposition was to enable low-cost desktop disk drives to be used in applications that were traditionally based on SCSI disk drives. In 1997 the cost per byte of SCSI disk drives carried a 2x premium over ATA disk drives. Rather than converging, price premium for SCSI disk drives actually grew to over 5x by 2002. This was not because SCSI drives became more expensive, rather both SCSI and ATA per byte disk drive prices dropped, but ATA drives were riding a much steeper price and performance ramp. AMCC / 3ware's differentiation from competitive offerings was its own proprietary I/O processor, trademarked as StorSwitch. The technology 3ware applied to scale

    Connetics

    Connetics

    Connetics Corporation develops and markets therapeutics for the dermatology market, selling two products, Luxiq and OLUX, both of which use the company's proprietary foam delivery system. Luxiq, the company's first dermatology product, and OLUX treat psoriasis of the scalp. The products are classified as topical steroids; Luxiq competes in the mid-potency category of the topical steroids market and OLUX competes in the high- and super-high potency category of the topical steroids market. Connetics also owns the rights to Soriatane, an oral psoriasis drug originally developed by Switzerland-based La Roche Holding. Connetics follows what it refers to as its "4:2:1" development model, a strategy that calls for the company to have four products in development, two products in final stage trials mandated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and one new, FDA-approved, product every year.During its first decade of existence, Connetics was a company trying to find itself. Both its name and its strategic focus were changed during its inaugural decade, as the company's executives worked to find the right niche for their pharmaceutical company. The company began as an enterprise named Connective Therapeutics, Inc., which was spun off in 1993 from another pharmaceutical company, San Francisco-based Genentech, Inc. Connective Therapeutics drew its name from the physiological focus of its business strategy, concentrating on connective tissues, the components of the body that form structural or binding elements such as skin, joints, ligaments, and lining of organs. Connective tissues form the three-dimensional structure that allow cells to function normally; any alteration in the precise framework causes organs to function abnormally, aberrations that Connective Therapeutics sought to eliminate or to treat with its pharmaceutical products.

    Vitae Pharmaceuticals

    Vitae Pharmaceuticals

    itae Pharmaceuticals is an emerging pharmaceutical company with a unique and powerful structure-based drug design engine and a rapidly maturing portfolio of high value discovery programs. Vitae's goal is to discover, develop and commercialize innovative new medicines, in partnership and alone, that will be best-in-class in important therapeutic areas such as: cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease (diabetes and obesity), CNS (Alzheimer's) and inflammation. Vitae's approach to value generation begins with a unique discovery engine. Vitae was founded with the goal to create a paradigm breakthrough in the field of structure-based drug design. CONTOUR™, the result of that effort, delivers superior drug design precision, novelty and speed for our discovery efforts against known, high value biologic targets. This powerful and advanced discovery tool, in the hands of Vitae's accomplished drug hunting team, has yielded high value drug candidates in multiple therapeutic areas, each with very large commercial potential. Vitae's first and lead program is in renin inhibition, an industry target of 30+ years for the treatment of high blood pressure. Less than 24 months after program initiation, Vitae identified novel, patentable inhibitors that overcame the decades old traditional roadblocks of low bioavailability and high synthetic complexity. This rapid success is paving the way for a potential new treatment standard, and as a result of that success, Vitae and GlaxoSmithKline formed a significant partnership around the program in one of the largest preclinical deals of 2005. Vitae's next program is in diabetes, a category of very high unmet medical need. This program is also advancing very rapidly, with multiple series of extremely potent, selective and patently distinct molecules discovered that are in later stage in vivo studies. As with renin, this program is attracting partner interest from multiple companies. Based on these early successes, Vitae is currently expanding its discovery efforts in the fields of inflammation, cancer, CNS and metabolic disease. Who We Are Vitae is led by R&D and business teams that apply extensive pharmaceutical industry experience to drive an entrepreneurial, high impact company culture. Vitae's accomplished R&D leaders have discovered and developed numerous blockbuster drugs, with annual sales ranging from hundreds of millions to billions of dollars. The team brings invaluable drug hunting insights and intuition into a drug discovery and development process centered around CONTOUR™, Vitae's breakthrough, proprietary structure-based drug discovery approach. Vitae's seasoned business team has significant experience leading billion dollar pharmaceutical businesses, and successfully delivering value to company shareholders in multiple therapeutic categories. In addition, Vitae's business and R&D teams are supported by a sophisticated group of blue chip investors and renowned advisors. Our Business Strategy Vitae is singularly product-focused. We discover and advance promising compounds to create a robust and sustainable pipeline of high impact drugs. Our strategies to achieve this goal are to:
    • Seamlessly integrate two powerful discovery assets:

      • Vitae's CONTOUR™ drug discovery platform. Vitae was founded with the goal to create a paradigm breakthrough in the field of structure-based drug design. CONTOUR™, the result, delivers superior drug design precision, novelty and speed, overcoming decades old drug discovery challenges and by rapidly creating and advancing potential solutions to today's highest value targets.


      • World-class scientists delivering great science, who have the proven ability to discover, develop and deliver commercially successful drugs


    • Focus on well validated targets that align with significant unmet medical needs and large potential market opportunities


    • Seek strategically appropriate partnerships with global pharmaceutical companies when and where it will help leverage the value of Vitae's portfolio and will accelerate the progression of individual programs


    • Continue to build a company centered on our core cultural values of innovation, results, urgency, teamwork and winning attitude, which we believe are essential for creating a great company and delivering significant value with important new medicines.

    Nucleonics

    Nucleonics

    The field of RNA interference or RNAi has received considerable attention since the phenomenon was recognized by Science Magazine as the "Breakthrough of the Year" in 2002. The mechanism of RNAi is believed to expand the universe of potential drug targets and also offer a new approach for known disease targets that have proven difficult to combat with more conventional therapeutic approaches and technologies. Nucleonics, Inc, founded in 2001, is a privately held, emerging, biotechnology company focused on the development of novel RNAi therapeutics for viral and other diseases with high unmet clinical need. The company believes its proprietary technology and delivery systems for expressed interfering RNA (eiRNA) offer advantages over other RNAi approaches in terms of safety and efficacy that position Nucleonics as a leader within the emerging field of RNAi. The company is initially focusing its efforts on the development of eiRNA-based therapeutics for chronic hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) infections. Nucleonics has also initiated early preclinical programs for pandemic flu, prostate cancer and ovarian cancer. The company plans to develop its clinical candidate products through Phase II clinical trials and then partner its programs with larger pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies to support Phase III pivotal trials and subsequent product launch. The company is also interested in working with research institutions and other biotechnology or pharmaceutical firms with strong foundations in other therapeutic areas or disease targets to co-develop novel eiRNA therapeutics for other indications.

    NeoMagic Corporation NASDAQ: NMGC is a fabless semiconductor company and supplier of low-power audio and video integrated circuits for mobile use (MagicMedia). NeoMagic designs and delivers consumer electronic device solutions with semiconductors and software offering exciting new product functionality for Video, TV, Imaging, Graphics, and Audio. NeoMagic was a leader in VGA until the early 2000s, when it lost out to more-powerful, 3D-capable devices from other vendors. NeoMagic then entered the smartphone and handheld device market with its family of MiMagic devices, including the MiMagic 3, MiMagi 5, and MiMagic 6. Market acceptance was weak, and in September of 2008, NeoMagic laid off virtually all employees and ceased most operations. Certain devices continued to be sold from inventory, and via supplies from the fab company who had made the devices previously. NeoMagic Corporation was incorporated in California in May 1993 and subsequently reincorporated in Delaware in February 1997. NeoMagic's first products pioneered the concept of integrating the major component parts of a computer video system (video memory, logic and analog circuitry such as a RAMDAC) into one integrated

    Neutral Tandem

    Neutral Tandem

    Since its inception in 2003, Neutral Tandem has quickly become the telecommunications service provider of choice by meeting the needs of competitive carriers with a neutral infrastructure to complete calls. We are fundamentally improving wireless, wireline, and broadband carriers’ ability to compete for and maintain customers.

    Our company was founded on the principle that a tandem network for exchanging voice traffic must be neutral – meaning, not owned by any one incumbent carrier – and is critical to the type of vigorous competition that ultimately will result in lower-cost, higher-value telecommunications services for consumers and enterprises. Neutral Tandem established such a network, making it easier, more efficient, and cost-effective for wireless carriers, cable companies, CLECs and VoIP providers to enter new markets and grow their existing business.

    Ultimately, the consumer has access to more choices, more innovative services, and greater reliability from the provider he or she ultimately chooses. Competitive carriers have made Neutral Tandem the premier company of our kind, and the undisputed market leader. We are trusted by nearly every national and regional wireless carrier, cable, CLEC, and VoIP provider in the 55 markets and 118 LATAs we serve. In fact, our network is helping competitive carriers exchange billions of minutes of traffic per month to over 200 million telephone numbers across the country.

    Neutral Tandem’s unique business strategy, patent-pending services and widespread market acceptance have helped us raise significant capital from leading venture capital firms including our initial investors Doll Capital Management and New Enterprise Associates (NEA). Neutral Tandem is a fully funded enterprise.

    StrongMail Systems

    Email, and the infrastructure that supports it, has become an integral part of conducting business. Can you imagine a day without it? From business transactions, to customer service, to communications. You rely on the channel every minute of every day. To harness the immense potential of email, you need a high performance delivery system that is reliable, manageable, feature rich and cost effective. Most importantly, you need a delivery system that can stand up to today's email deliverability challenges. A Brave New World Times have changed. Unfortunately, the majority of outbound email systems in place today, have not. Regulatory requirements, spam filters, volume limitations, relevancy, authentication protocols, and reputation services are all critical factors that affect email delivery today, but the 20+ year old technology that supports most systems was never designed to meet these challenges. As a result, businesses often reach only a fraction of their target audience, and even then, they typically don't know who they reached and who they didn't. Unlocking the Business Potential with StrongMail Businesses today need a single, future-proof platform for email delivery, personalization and campaign management. They need a company with the technology, expertise and services to guide them through today's deliverability challenges. In a word, they need StrongMail. Whether you need to replace a failing MTA or CRM email system, personalize your customer communications, or ensure delivery of your email marketing messages, StrongMail can help. With StrongMail, you get patent-pending technology backed by professional expertise and hands-on support.

    Xoomsys was founded in 2003 by Dr. Sunil Shah. Dr. Shah has developed breakthrough technology that allows simulation of tightly coupled systems in a distributed processing environment. Prior to this breakthrough tightly coupled systems - integrated circuits belong to this class of systems - could not be simulated in a distributed processing environment because the communication overhead between computing nodes negated any performance gains achieved by distributing the problem. Xoomsys is developing products based on this breakthrough in distributed processing. The overall solution uses Xoomsys products, industry-standard circuit simulators and low-cost Linux computing clusters to deliver orders-of-magnitude gains in circuit simulation throughput without any loss of accuracy.

Users receive a personal profile page where they can post blogs, photographs, music, videos and questionnaires which other users may answer. Additionally, users may add others as friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. Bebo is very similar to other social networking sites, mainly Facebook. Bebo was founded by Michael Birch and his wife Xochi Birch in January 2005 at their home in San Francisco. The website name was bought by the founders, and the backronym "Blog Early, Blog Often" was invented to answer the question of what the name meant. The site was acquired by AOL on March 13, 2008 for $850 million, with the Birch's combined 70% stake yielding a profit of $595 million from the deal. However, the founders and executives of Bebo had stated that their end goal had been to sell out to a larger company, as they were well aware of the site's platform instabilities.

    CoGenesys

    CoGenesys

    CoGenesys is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative long-acting medicines across broad therapeutic areas.

    Our goal, as an early-stage drug development organization, is to execute a business plan unique within the pharmaceutical industry: to rapidly and efficiently generate medically important, stable, long-acting bio-therapeutics, which are then available for sale, license or further partner-funded development following early-stage demonstration of safety and proof of concept in man.

    At CoGenesys, we are applying a proprietary and clinically validated technology that allows the improvement and expanded use of many known and clinically established therapeutic peptides and proteins as well as the creation of new medicines from known pharmaceutically relevant peptides. Without the benefit of our technology, these peptides and proteins have numerous shortcomings including poor bio-availability, the need for frequent dosing, and unwanted side-effect profiles.

    CoGenesys’ highly experienced management and development teams have a significant track record in translating early drug opportunities into clinically-proven candidates for the pharmaceutical market. Our state of the art research and manufacturing facility is fully equipped, supporting both GLP development and cGMP manufacture of biologics. We have capitalized on the depth of our pipeline and the breadth of our technology to develop drug candidates that will address a broad spectrum of unmet needs including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and enzyme replacement therapy, among others. We currently have several well-advanced product development programs including our lead clinical candidate Cardeva, a long-acting natriuretic peptide being developed for outpatient treatment of chronic heart failure. The second program, Neugranin, a long-acting form of granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF), is being readied for clinical development as an agent initially for the treatment of febrile neutropenia associated with chemotherapy.

    Our Name: Celeno as a Star

    We are sometimes asked about our name. Celeno is a star in the Pleiades, a cluster of very beautiful and dazzling stars that forms the eye of the bull in the constellation of Taurus. Without a telescope, you can see six or seven of the 100 or so stars in the Pleiades. Seven bright stars in the cluster helped guide Greek sailors home: Alcyone, Merope, Taygeta, Sterope, Electra, Maia and our namesake Celeno. They are named for the sisters and the daughters of Atlas, the mythical figure who supported the world. We thought Celeno was an appropriate name for a company providing a dazzling "star" technology that supports bringing the world a new vision of home networking.

    Entrisphere

    Entrisphere

    Over the coming decade, telecommunications carriers will be asked to deliver a rich new array of voice, data, and video services to business and residential customers. To do so, carriers must transform their access networks.

    The best path forward is to simplify access infrastructure by migrating to a single network that can deliver any service to any customer at any time. Multi-service access platforms are the vehicle for this simplification. But in seeking the right solution, carriers have found that legacy equipment suppliers are limited by their need to integrate new capabilities into legacy products, while startup equipment suppliers lack the practical understanding of carrier business and operational challenges to properly support their customers' business goals.

    Entrisphere is the only access network equipment supplier that combines the technical brilliance required for real network service transformation with the decades of real-world carrier experience that ensure pragmatic application of new technology. At Entrisphere, we believe that new broadband networking products must solve business problems as well as technical ones, and our multi-service access solutions have been designed from the ground up to simplify access networks, to ease the migration to new services, and to maximize carrier deployment versatility and revenues throughout the process.

    XDx, Inc.

    XDx, Inc.

    Our Mission Improve patient care by developing molecular diagnostics that translate an individual's immune status into clinically actionable information. About XDx Founded in 2000, XDx is a molecular diagnostics company based in South San Francisco, Calif. Setting the stage for a new era in personalized medicine, XDx is one of the first companies to develop and commercialize practical applications built on insights from the Human Genome Project. The company has developed a proprietary new method for noninvasively monitoring the immune system by measuring gene expression in a patient’s peripheral blood. The technology offers the potential to decrease healthcare costs and significantly improve the quality of life for patients with a variety of life-threatening or life-altering, immune-mediated diseases. This work is the basis for AlloMapTM molecular expression testing, a service provided by XDx through its clinical laboratory in South San Francisco, California. AlloMap testing provides transplant physicians a new tool for post-cardiac transplant patient management. The lab received CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments) certification in November 2004. AlloMap testing is being incorporated into clinical practice at leading U.S. cardiac transplant centers. XDx's First Market: Post-Cardiac Transplant Patient Management Worldwide, approximately 4,500 cardiac transplants are performed annually and the approximately 30,000 patients living with transplants visit their physician an aggregate of over 100,000 times per year. These visits are vital to monitor whether the patient's immune system is rejecting the transplanted heart and whether the patient is able to tolerate the powerful immunosuppressive drugs that attempt to prevent the immune system from attacking and rejecting the new heart. Current clinical practice calls for multiple cardiac biopsies, as many as 10 or more, in the first year post-transplant, where pathologists look for microscopic evidence of rejection. These invasive procedures are necessary despite the fact that over 75% of the time, they provide a negative result- the patient's immune system is not rejecting the transplanted heart. While cardiac biopsy is the gold standard for monitoring transplant rejection, there is a critical need for a better tool. XDx is working to introduce AlloMap as that better tool to monitor rejection.
    Broad Based Technology Platform The AlloMap molecular expression technology developed and implemented by XDx in heart transplant patient management may be broadly applicable to other diseases that involve the immune system. Lung, kidney, liver, pancreas and bone marrow transplantation are all complicated by rejection mediated through the immune system. XDx also foresees opportunities in common autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases that involve activation or dysfunction of the immune system.

    Acuson

    Acuson

    Acuson Corporation was a sonography equipment company specializing in high quality medical ultrasound equipment. Founded in 1979 by Sam Maslak, Rob Younge and Amin Hanafy with the first product (The Acuson 128) shipped in 1983, Acuson pioneered many aspects related to medical ultrasound, most significantly the first fully computerized ultrasound system. In 1996 Acuson introduced the Sequoia 512 and Sequoia C256 systems (the latter for cardiac imaging). The principal architect of the Sequoia was Nelson Wright, who was Acuson's Vice President of Advanced Development. Wright also led the engineering team that developed the Sequoia. The Sequoia quickly became the biggest selling ultrasound system (by dollar volume) and it was manufactured in various versions until December 2008. In 2000, Acuson was acquired by Siemens Medical Engineering group for approximately $700 million after which Acuson Corporation no longer existed, however Siemens continues to use the Acuson brand name. Siemens' ultrasound division headquarters is located at the original Acuson facility in Mountain View California.

    Nevis Networks

    Nevis Networks

    Enterprise LAN Security Challenge
    As enterprise business models have evolved, the need to open the network and provision on-demand services for employees and third parties such as contractors, partners, auditors and guests has increased. Conversely, increasing government regulation, concerns over data integrity and unauthorized access to sensitive and valuable data, and the growing threat to network availability from malicious sources all have promoted the need for more granular visibility as well as tighter security and control. These new conditions have created an undesirable mismatch between the complexity of business needs and the capabilities of existing security technologies.
     
    A security solution focused on the LAN is essential to protecting the enterprise network. This solution must be able to reduce the security envelope to protect, control, and isolate the individual user. It needs to work for employees and third parties such as guests and contractors. Furthermore, it must integrate all LAN security elements, including access control, threat containment, visibility into each user's activities, and easy deployment into existing networks - and do it all at LAN speed.
    Defining Enterprise LAN Security
    Nevis Networks was founded in 2002 by an ASIC engineer from Juniper Networks and a software engineering manger from Cisco Systems who shared a vision that the worlds of enterprise networking and LAN security were coming together. Their goal: to create a network infrastructure-based security solution that combines high-speed security processing at low latency - full LAN security with no compromise to performance. Nevis Networks delivers a powerful breakthrough solution for LAN security. Using its own ASIC-based technology, Nevis builds LAN security systems from the ground up that forge a Personal DMZ™, which adds a new layer of security policies for each individual user. Nevis security solutions, operating at wirespeed, combine real-time, dynamic access control, in-depth threat detection and containment, and pervasive visibility to ensure data integrity, network availability and regulatory compliance.
    Investors
    Nevis Networks has raised a total of US$40 million in three rounds of funding from premier venture capital firms New Enterprise Associates, BlueRun Ventures (formerly Nokia Venture Partners) and New Path Ventures LLC.

    Zagat Survey

    Zagat Survey ( /zəˈɡæt/) was established by Tim and Nina Zagat in 1979 as a way to collect and correlate the ratings of restaurants by diners. For their first guide, covering New York City, the Zagats surveyed their friends. As of 2005, the Zagat Survey included 70 cities, with reviews based on the input of 250,000 individuals reporting over the years. In addition to restaurants, Zagat guides rate hotels, nightlife, shopping, zoos, music, movies, theaters, golf courses, and airlines. The guides are sold in book form, and formerly as a paid subscription on its web site. As of May 2012, as part of its acquisition by Google in September 2011, Zagat reviews and ratings became tightly integrated into Google's services, and the Zagat.com site became free to use. The ratings are on a 30-point scale, made up of ratings for defined areas including food, decor, service, and cost. In addition to numeric scores, the survey also includes a short descriptive paragraph that incorporates selected quotations (typically a few words) from several reviewers' comments about each restaurant or service, as well as typical pricing and other information.

Its HyperRoll Data Performance Management Suite™ sets new standards for performance, agility and availability in data warehouse loading and querying, while dramatically reducing the administrative, hardware and software costs of the data warehouse.

    Today’s businesses need to meet compliance requirements, improve customer satisfaction and loyalty and increase revenue and profitability. Each of these needs demands fresh business data from a variety of sources, delivered in timely fashion. Even the most powerful relational database servers cannot keep pace with the analytical demands imposed by scores of financial analysts, market researchers, strategic planners and customer relationship managers. As a result, many business organizations cannot unlock the value of the terabytes of data they have collected. Complex queries take hours and even days to complete. Meanwhile, competitive advantage can slip away.

    The HyperRoll Data Performance Management Suite™ combines tightly coupled analytic processing with data management, 64-bit memory processing, and optimized caching and compression to overcome fundamental limitations of relational databases. This innovative technology integrates transparently with existing relational databases and can be deployed easily on existing hardware and operating systems. Organizations gain the benefit of HyperRoll’s advanced capabilities while preserving their investments in data, metadata, hardware, database licenses and administrative skills.

    Based in Mountain View, California, HyperRoll has offices throughout the United States and in Israel. The company is backed by the leading venture capital firms Bessemer Venture Partners, Greylock Partners and Sequoia Capital along with leading Israeli venture capital firms Vertex and Microdent.

    Acclarent

    Acclarent

    Founded: Acclarent, Inc. is a privately held medical device company in Menlo Park, CA that was established in June of 2004.


    Mission:
    We are dedicated to the development of innovative devices providing new technologies to further meet the needs of ENT patients.

    Initially, we are focused on achieving the goals of sinus surgery with novel, endoscopic, catheter-based tools - Balloon SinuplastyTM devices. Through the Balloon SinuplastyTM technology and our Relieva® product portfolio we offer ENT patients alternatives to conventional endoscopic surgical approaches. FDA clearances for these devices were completed in 2005 and the products were commercially launched in the US that same year.

    Through our core technologies and commitment to innovation, AcclarentTM will continue to advance novel devices in all areas of ENT.


    Background:
    Sinusitis affects 37 million people each year, making it one of the most common health problems in the U.S. It is more prevalent than arthritis and hypertension and has a greater impact on quality of life than diabetes or congestive heart failure. Sinusitis is also responsible for $8 billion* in direct healthcare expenditures and a significant loss of workplace productivity.

    The most frequentally used treatments for chronic sinusitis are medical therapies and / or conventional sinus surgery. Medical therapies are often successful, but for 20-25% of patients, they are not adequate. In these cases, conventional sinus surgery is the patient's next hope for finding relief. However, conventional sinus surgery is a major operation that may require bone and tissue removal in order to open up blocked sinuses. For this or other clinical or personal reasons, over 600,000 patients that could benefit from surgery choose to forego it and live with their sinus condition.


    The Balloon SinuplastyTM System:
    Acclarent has developed the Balloon SinuplastyTM system a novel, endoscopic, catheter-based technology for sinusitis patients. This system is a family of proprietary products cleared by the FDA and currently being used in endoscopic surgical procedures throughout the U.S. and select countries worldwide.


    Balloon SinuplastyTM Technology:
    Balloon SinuplastyTM products are FDA-cleared, endoscopic, catheter-based devices specifically designed to navigate the tortuous sinus anatomy. The Sinus Balloon Catheter is gradually inflated to gently restructure the previously blocked nasal passage, maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining and restoring normal sinus drainage and function.

    Tropos Networks

    Tropos Networks

    Tropos® Networks is the market leader in delivering metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh network systems. Our systems have been selected to unwire more major league cities than all competitors combined.

    At Tropos, we develop technology based on what our customers want and need. With more than 500 deployments worldwide, we've gotten to know pretty well what those wants and needs are. Metro-scale Wi-Fi is different than enterprise wireless, which is different than wireline networking. Huge differences. That's why we've developed a system, from the ground up, that's purpose-built for this environment.

    Tropos MetroMesh™ solutions deliver true wireless broadband (>1 Mbps downloading and uploading). They require only 10% of the capital investment and 8% of the operating expense of 3G cellular networks on a capacity adjusted basis. Low-cost Wi-Fi clients can connect to Tropos MetroMesh networks with no need for additional hardware or software.

    The patented Tropos MetroMesh architecture couples superior radios with the software required to scale metro Wi-Fi networks to nationwide or international footprints. MetroMesh creates affordable capacity by making the most efficient possible use of each active RF channel. It maximizes return on investment by allowing one physical network to be separated into multiple secure virtual segments for use by different subscriber populations. MetroMesh's adaptive connectivity compensates for the wide variety of Wi-Fi clients used to access metro-scale mesh networks, providing the foundation for an outstanding user experience. MetroMesh also provides the software tools required for centralized visibility, analysis and control of highly dispersed networks, minimizing operating expenses.

    MetroMesh networks deliver residential broadband access and serve small businesses and nomadic users. These networks support mission-critical broadband applications in mobile public safety environments, such as mobile database access, video surveillance, and GIS inquiries. Finally, they are enabling new in-field applications for municipalities and enterprises such as automated meter reading and automated vehicle tracking.

    If it isn't a Tropos MetroMesh solution, it isn't designed for a metro-scale Wi-Fi environment. Sure, you can find ways to make Spanning Tree and Layer 2 bridging work in this world, but it'd be a bit like using a push mower to maintain a golf course…you could do it, by why would you?

    So, you can deploy the world's most widely used metro Wi-Fi solution, or you can grab your mower and head out to #10...the rough needs trimming.

    Xilinx

    Xilinx

    Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) ( /ˈzaɪlɪŋks/ ZY-lingks) is an American technology company, primarily a supplier of programmable logic devices. It is known for inventing the field programmable gate array (FPGA) and as the first semiconductor company with a fabless manufacturing model. Founded in Silicon Valley in 1984, the company is headquartered in San Jose, California, with additional offices in Longmont, Colorado; Dublin, Ireland; Singapore; Hyderabad, India; and Tokyo, Japan. Ross Freeman, Bernard Vonderschmitt, and James V Barnett II, who all had worked for integrated circuit and solid-state device manufacturer Zilog Corp, founded Xilinx in 1984. While working for Zilog, Freeman wanted to create chips that acted like a blank tape, allowing users to program the technology themselves. At the time, the concept was paradigm-changing. "The concept required lots of transistors and, at that time, transistors were considered extremely precious – people thought that Ross's idea was pretty far out", said Xilinx Fellow Bill Carter, who when hired in 1984 as the first IC designer was the Xilinx's eighth employee. Big semiconductor manufacturers were enjoying strong profits by producing

    Symantec Corporation

    Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) is an American global computer security software corporation headquartered in Mountain View, California. It is a Fortune 500 company and a member of the S&P 500 stock market index. Founded in 1982 by Gary Hendrix with a National Science Foundation grant, Symantec was originally focused on artificial intelligence-related projects, including a database program. Hendrix hired several Stanford University natural language processing researchers as the company's first employees, among them Barry Greenstein (professional poker player and developer of the word processor component within Q&A). In 1984 it became clear that the advanced natural language and database system that Symantec had developed could not be ported from DEC minicomputers to the PC. This left Symantec without a product, but with expertise in natural language database query systems and technology. As a result, later in 1984 Symantec was acquired by another, smaller software startup company, C&E Software, founded by Denis Coleman and Gordon Eubanks and headed by Eubanks. C&E Software was in the process of developing an integrated file management and word processing program. The merged

    Background: Heart failure (HF) is a condition that is caused by damage to the heart muscle, which results in the inability of the heart to pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body. This highly debilitating and progressive disorder affects more than five million people in the United States and 25 million people worldwide. An estimated 550,000 new HF cases are diagnosed each year in the United States alone. Heart failure can be caused by or is the end result of a number of conditions, including coronary artery disease, prolonged high blood pressure, poor valve function or other cardiovascular abnormalities.


    CorCap™ Cardiac Support Device (CSD): The company’s introductory product, the CorCap™ Cardiac Support Device (CSD), is proprietary mesh wrap that is placed around the heart to provide gentle, permanent support. It is intended to prevent and reverse the progression of heart failure by improving the heart’s structure and function, leading to improvements in the quality of a patient’s life.

    The CorCap CSD received CE marking in September 2000. Randomized clinical trials evaluating effectiveness of the CorCap CSD have been completed in North America and Europe. The CorCap CSD has been used in the treatment of more than 460 patients worldwide.

    Business.com

    Business.com is a business search engine and web directory and pay per click advertising network. It includes Work.com, a business-to-business community publishing platform where experts share advice on common business topics in the form of how-to guides. Business.com, Inc. was founded in 1999 by Jake Winebaum, previously chairman of the Walt Disney Internet Group; and Sky Dayton, founder of Earthlink, Boingo Wireless, and Helio, among others. Around that time, the Business.com domain name was purchased from Marc Ostrofsky by Winebaum's eCompanies Ventures for a then record $7.5 million. This represented a tidy profit over the $150,000 price tag of the domain in 1997, also a record in its own time. In addition to investment by eCompanies, early funding in the amount of $61 million was provided in 2000 by Pearson PLC, Reed Business Information, McGraw Hill, and others. In its initial form, Business.com aimed to be the Internet's leading search engine for small business and corporate information. As with much of the nascent and well-hyped Internet industry, Business.com struggled through the Dot-com bubble years. The company retooled beginning in 2002 after massive layoffs and a new

    Digital content and data services: a new landscape
    Value added services as well as content and messaging are expected to drive business growth for communications service providers. As revenue growth from traditional services slows, and competition for subscribers and wallet share increases, Mobile, Cable, IPTV and fixed-line carriers must look for creative ways to ensure that this prediction becomes a reality.

    Digital content and value added services are very different from communication access services. They are highly diversified, and often have multiple cross-media relationships; for example a ring-tone, picture, gossip, and video clip from the same artist.

    In contrast to the broad parameters of conventional demographic-based customer segmentation, the target audience for advanced products can be defined according to a substantial list of dynamic lifestyle and behavioral factors, including purchase events, subscriptions, and current location. In addition, many content products have a limited lifespan, or are most relevant during a particular event or season. New marketing paradigms
    To propel sales and increase customer satisfaction in this new environment, service providers must target customers with personalized offers based on their profiles, preferences, and real-time behavior.

    Using proven marketing techniques such as bundling, cross-selling and time-limited promotions, service providers can support a wide range of objectives from enlarging purchase size, to introduction of new services and churn reduction. For example, Video on Demand programs can be packaged creatively into targeted offers such as buy two action movies, get one for free; happy hour for comedies; or special discounts for a 5 movie package.

    These practices can be used to promote sales of a broad range of services including SMS, TV, internet, and voice. Furthermore, service providers have an opportunity to consistently promote offers in response to a range of real-time customer activity - to ensure a lasting impact.

    Creating and maintaining a large portfolio of highly targeted offerings poses a range of challenges- business and operational- that must be addressed. The time and cost involved in creating new offerings is substantial, so developing a time limited offer to a small market segment does not always make financial sense. Just as important, a marketing platform for designing, executing, and analyzing the various aspects of a targeted, personalized product offer is not a part of the current IT infrastructure. Pontis Mission
    Pontis mission is to empower Communication Service Providers to provide customers with the optimal product offering and purchasing experience, while dramatically lowering costs and shortening time to market. The Pontis Integrated Marketing System™
    With Pontis, service providers can increase usage of digital content and services with personalized, real-time offers to customers. The Integrated Marketing System provides an end-to-end solution for design execution and analysis of targeted marketing programs that make a measurable impact on ARPU, customer loyalty, and lifetime value.

    Spiration

    Spiration is a website and small company based in London specialising in internet software development, voice integration, IVR, VoIP, Asterisk PBX and networked applications. The spiration.co.uk website was created in 2000 by Chris Lacy-Hulbert (Christo). Initially used as a travel blog and an online store of Christo's poems, the site went through a number of evolutionary changes. In 2001 Christo created the Spiration Channels. The channels provided a free-to-use, infinitely hierarchical collaboration and blogging platform. The platform was heavily Search Engine Optimised and became the content store for the original travel and poem documents of the old Spiration site. The channels evolved to develop more features. They now allow a channel creator to hide a channel from public view, so that other users might not even know of their existence. Only the channel owner and users invited by the channel owner are able to view and post to these 'exclusive' channels. Many of the channels currently within the system are hidden in this way. The Spiration channels have remained largely unchanged since late 2003, bar some incremental improvements to the underlying systems. This is largely due

    Upromise

    Upromise

    Upromise, Inc. is an American corporation launched in April 2001, that is owned by SLM Corporation, the parent of Sallie Mae. Upromise members accrue account credit on eligible purchases from grocery stores, online retailers, travel, restaurants and gas stations. Members can direct their earnings into a high-yield savings account or tax-deferred 529 plan, use it to pay down eligible student loans or request a check to spend the funds in any way they like -- the money is not required to be spent on college-related expenses. Critics of the Upromise program point out that as of 2008, the average member has earned only $47 toward future college expenses -- and that to accrue this amount, the participant opts into a highly detailed purchase-tracking system, with information sold by Upromise to subscribing marketers. Upromise is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts. The "529" college savings plans are offered through Upromise Investments, Inc. (member of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC)). On August 23, 2006, Upromise was acquired by Sallie Mae. On January 5, 2012, Upromise agreed to settle FTC charges and was barred

    YouTube

    YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005, on which users can upload, view and share videos. The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash Video and HTML5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, although media corporations including CBS, the BBC, VEVO, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via the site, as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can watch videos, while registered users can upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users at least 18 years old. In November 2006, YouTube, LLC was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion, and now operates as a subsidiary of Google.

    Progreso Financiero

    Progreso Financiero

    Company Overview Progress Financial Corporation is a consumer finance company that offers unsecured credit to Hispanics that lack established credit and banking relationships. Our customers are hard working immigrants who have been in the US for 10 years and at the same job for 3.3 years. They come to the US to get ahead and to create a better life for their children. Unfortunately, given the way credit works in the United States, most immigrants have a very difficult time getting loans, building credit and entering the financial mainstream. As a result, we believe that a very large opportunity exists to offer personal loans, retail installment loans and credit cards to a fast growing population of honest, hard working people who demonstrate a high moral commitment to personal obligations.

    Under the brand name, Progreso Financiero, we market, sell and disburse $500 - $5000 loans in Spanish from a network of distribution points located inside large Hispanic supermarkets and high traffic malls. We currently have 4 locations in the Bay Area, but have plans to expand rapidly to other parts of California and the United States. Founding Story The idea for Progress Financial was born out of a research project at Stanford's Graduate School of Business led by MBA student, James Gutierrez, and sponsored by Professors Charles Holloway and Joel Peterson. Raised among Mexican immigrants, James aimed to start a business that helped hard-working Hispanics achieve their financial goals in the US. The team of ex-Bain and McKinsey consultants interviewed 30+ senior executives at retailers and financial institutions who have successfully penetrated the Hispanic market, namely Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Fair Isaac, Experian, Ace Check Cashing, Lexicon Marketing, and La Curacao.

    The team also studied several credit companies in Latin America that have proven that lending to the poor is profitable and highly impactful. These businesses include Banco Azteca/Elektra, Casas Bahia, Compartamos, Credito Familiar and Zogbi Bank. Gabriel Manjarrez, Bank of America's former Hispanic Segment Executive, who led the bank's acquisition of 4M+ Hispanic consumers and testified in Congress on the use of Matricula Consular IDs in financial services, later joined James as co-founder. We currently have sales locations in San Jose, CA, one of the most important Hispanic immigrant communities in the country.

    Netscape

    Netscape Communications (formerly known as Netscape Communications Corporation and commonly known as Netscape) is a US computer services company, best known for Netscape Navigator, its web browser. When it was an independent company, its headquarters were in Mountain View, California. Netscape's web browser was once dominant in terms of usage share, but lost most of that share to Internet Explorer during the first browser war. The usage share of Netscape had fallen from over 90-percent in the mid 1990s to less than one-percent by the end of 2006. Netscape is credited with developing the Secure Sockets Layer Protocol (SSL) for securing online communication, which is still widely used, as well as JavaScript, the most widely used language for client-side scripting of web pages. Netscape stock traded from 1995 until 1999 when it was acquired by AOL in a pooling-of-interests transaction ultimately worth US$10 billion. Shortly before its acquisition by AOL, Netscape released the source code for its browser and created the Mozilla Organization to coordinate future development of its product.

    Amobee

    Amobee

    About Us Amobee is the first company to deliver a unified, telco-grade system for funding mobile content and communications through advertising revenues. Amobee has launched a new media system for ad-funding the entire mobile content and communication business.

    Amobee is the only media system capable of dynamically inserting targeted, interactive advertisements into all types of mobile entertainment and communication channels, including videos, music, messaging, games, WAP etc., using a single, telco-grade ad-serving infrastructure. 

    Headquartered in the San Francisco, the company enjoys financial backing from some of the biggest names in venture capital: Accel Partners, Sequoia Capital and Globespan. Amobee has commercial offices in London and San Francisco, with R&D in Herzliya, Israel. What We Believe In

    1. Mobile users will engage with an ad-model if they are given a choice and if they understand what they will get in exchange for their engagement. We believe in providing a user-centric, permission-based model and ensuring that consumers are always in control and that they get value in return for ads . The advertising should be presented in a relevant, contextual, targeted, personalized user friendly manner. 

    2.We believe the Mobile Operators are key to leveraging the value of mobile media because:
    • Operators have a trusted relationship with their subscribers
    • Operators own valuable media properties in their own right
    • Operators hold the key to mobile media’s unique selling proposition: user data (CRM, Location, transaction history)
    • Operators have a unique, all-encompassing view of the user across all channels, which allows for optimal ad inventory usage.
    3. We believe that the ‘user-paid’ model is one of the key barriers to the growth of mobile data consumption and revenues. As the mobile phone is fast becoming a media channel, bringing advertisers on board in a way that creates value for all stakeholders will lead to increased data consumption and greater revenues.

    4. We need to make it scalable and easy for Advertisers to engage. Providing a holistic, scalable one-stop solution will help make mobile a more attractive media channel.

    5. ‘Ad-funded’ does not necessarily mean ‘free’. We believe in offering the user a choice between various levels of ad-funding and full price, ad-free content.

    Wavion

    Wavion

    Cities and towns worldwide are discovering the many benefits that metropolitan-wide broadband wireless services bring to their communities. A metro Wi-Fi network can improve public services, encourage economic development, make communications more economical, and give residents and local companies anytime, anywhere Internet connections. Wavion is first to market with an entirely new generation of Wi-Fi technology that resolves the performance, penetration, and profitability challenges that face municipalities and service providers deploying a metro-Wi-Fi network. Wavion's spatially adaptive access points increases coverage and capacity compared to conventional Wi-Fi technologies, making them economical to install yet scalable enough to accommodate thousands of new users and demanding future applications. Wavion's patented technology is specially adapted to outdoor environments where interference, weather, and traffic are more likely to disrupt standard wireless signals. It also provides better penetration into buildings, offering high-bandwidth metro-wide access to people where they live, work, learn, and travel. Service providers benefit from less-dense Wavion installations that incur only half the infrastructure capital and operating costs of other solutions. Rather than use commoditized chipsets with single radio and diversity antennas, Wavion custom-designed ASICs and embedded software to optimally leverage six antennas and six radio transceivers in a single access point. Wavion is the first company to successfully harness the power of digital beamforming and space-division multiple access (SDMA) technologies for metro Wi-Fi deployments. Wavion engineers have taken digital beamforming technology to the next step by designing access points that continually optimize wireless signals and maximize the range of those signals regardless of environmental conditions. In addition, Wavion's implementation of spatial division multiple access (SDMA) technology enables simultaneous transmission of up to four different data streams to four different users over the same radio frequency channel, boosting capacity by a factor of four. The result: unparalleled wireless service for virtually any metro-area user with a standard Wi-Fi-equipped device. Wavion delivers full-featured spatially adaptive access points to service providers, and also provides its technology for integration into infrastructure vendors' equipment. Founded in 2000 and based in Yoqneam, Israel and San Jose, California, Wavion has attracted an engineering team with a combined 100 man-years of experience in digital beamforming, SDMA, MIMO, and other key wireless technologies. The company is backed by Sequoia Capital and other leading venture firms.

    ISGN Technologies

    ISGN Technologies

      Corporate Information     The Beginning

    ISGN began as the in-house IT service of the K.K. Birla Group’s fertilizer division. The ‘service’ took wing just about the time every other Indian company’s IT initiative was also waking up to the inherent potential of the nascent industry. ISGN was then simply ISG – India Software Group. The year was 1998 and ISG had just been split off to operate as an independent entity. Soon ISG merged with NovaSoft Technologies. As a result, it now had offices in the US, UK and Singapore offering Outsourced Product Development, Application Maintenance Outsourcing and was a reseller of ERP products. The merged entity was named ISG NovaSoft Technologies Ltd , or ISGN. However, by 2004 it was apparent that the company wasn’t competitive enough in the space it occupied. It was time to re-evaluate our strategy. Thus, a new team replaced existing management and began the bigger plan for enterprise restructuring. The Vision

    The incoming CEO, Krishna Srinivasan had a compelling vision, clearly articulated: "To build a global portfolio of knowledge driven, IT and IT Enabled Service businesses that create sustainable value to all stakeholders: Customers, Investors and Employees. ISGN will accomplish this by creating businesses, primarily based out of India where ISGN will be among the Top 3 in three years." This is the vision around which the strategy for growth and consolidation evolved. People. Process. Technology.

    Now that a vision was in place, a market niche had to be identified. The plan was to be the master of a single domain. The management soon identified the US residential mortgage industry as that market and devised a business strategy to achieve global leadership by becoming a one-stop shop, offering: Product Solutions and IT consulting Technology Platforms and Knowledge Process Outsourcing However, to leverage the potential of this huge market, ISGN had to have the right people, processes and technology in place. It was then decided to acquire the required skills and technology. Thus, MortgageHub, Dynatek, IQBancor and other industry leaders were acquired over time. Now, with NEA investing in ISGN in addition to the founding family – K.K.Birla group’s staunch support, ISGN is poised to take on the U.S. residential mortgage solutions space as an undisputed leader and will remain a leader by a conscious and relentless growth strategy.

    Sequent Computer Systems

    Sequent Computer Systems, or Sequent, was a computer company that designed and manufactured multiprocessing computer systems. They were among the pioneers in high-performance symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) open systems, innovating in both hardware (e.g. cache management and interrupt handling) and software (e.g. read-copy-update). Through a partnership with Oracle Corporation, Sequent became a dominant high-end UNIX platform in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Later they introduced a next-generation high-end platform for UNIX and Windows NT based on a non-uniform memory access architecture, NUMA-Q. As hardware prices fell in the late 1990s, and Intel shifted their server focus to the Itanium processor family, Sequent joined the Project Monterey effort in October 1998. which aimed to move a standard Unix to several new platforms. In July 1999 Sequent agreed to be acquired by IBM. At the time, Sequent's CEO said its technology would "find its way through IBM's entire product field" and IBM announced it would "both sell Sequent machines, and fold Sequent's technology...into its own servers", but by May 2002 a decline in sales of the models acquired from Sequent, among other reasons,

    Concentric Medical

    Concentric Medical

    Overview Founded in 1999, the company has gathered together a dynamic team of medical professionals, engineers, and employees in Mountain View, CA to deliver our commitment to opening the pathway to stroke treatment. The company is working hand in hand with stroke centers to provide new options for stroke treatment and develop new solutions to make a difference in the lives of stroke patients. Stroke Management: Merci® Retrieval System A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in or around the brain becomes plugged or ruptures. When a stroke occurs, the area of the brain supplied by the affected blood vessel fails to work properly, and in some cases, that part of the brain dies. Depending on the severity of the stroke and the part of the brain affected, severe disability or death can occur. Therefore, rapid medical intervention to remove the clot and restore blood flow is critical. The Merci Retriever from Concentric Medical, Inc., was recently cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the removal of blood clots from patients experiencing an ischemic stroke. The Merci Retriever is a novel therapy that removes the clot, restores blood flow and offers hope for ischemic stroke patients with no other options. The FDA granted clearance after a thorough review of patient data obtained in a clinical study at 25 medical centers in the United States. The MERCI (Mechanical Embolus Removal in Cerebral Ischemia) Trial evaluated the device in 141 patients who were ineligible for "clot-busting" drugs which can only be used within three hours of stroke onset. The Merci Retriever is used in conjunction with the Merci Microcatheter and the Merci Balloon Guide Catheter and employs standard catheterization techniques. Once the location of the clot has been identified using angiography, the Merci Balloon Guide Catheter is inserted through a small incision in the femoral artery in the groin. Under x-ray guidance, the Merci Balloon Guide catheter is maneuvered up to the carotid artery in the neck, a guidewire and the Merci Microcatheter are deployed through the Balloon Guide Catheter and then placed just beyond the clot. The physician then deploys the Merci Retriever device to engage and ensnare the clot. Once the clot is captured, the Merci Balloon Guide Catheter is inflated to temporarily arrest forward flow while the clot is being withdrawn. The clot is pulled into the Merci Balloon Guide Catheter and completely out of the body. The balloon is then deflated, and blood flow is restored.

    Quantum Corp.

    Quantum Corp.

    Quantum Corporation (NYSE: QTM) is a manufacturer of tape drive, tape automation, data deduplication storage products and scalable file storage software, based in San Jose, California. From its founding in 1980 until 2000, it was also a major disk storage manufacturer (usually #2 in market share behind Seagate), and was based in Milpitas, California. Quantum got its start when executives and designers from Shugart Associates, IBM and Memorex came up with an idea for an 8-inch hard drive that would achieve decent performance without the cost or complexity of using a full closed-loop servo system — a difficult task before the advent of dedicated servo ICs and readily-available DSPs. Quantum's first products were very popular; according to one of the company's historical documents, by 1982 it had a 25% share of the market. It designed smaller ST-506-compatible versions of its hard drives, the Q500 series, using the same servo system. It also introduced (through its Plus Development division) what would be most people's introduction to the company, the Plus Hardcard, in 1985. The Hardcard was essentially a smaller version of the Q500, designed to fit in an ISA slot, with an embedded

    Amicus Therapeutics

    Amicus Therapeutics

    Amicus Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of a new class of small molecule, orally-administered drugs to treat a range of human genetic diseases. Amicus’ innovative therapies apply to conditions in which crucial proteins are defective as a result of improper folding. Instead of trying to replace these complex proteins, Amicus’ approach uses pharmacological chaperones to selectively bind to the misfolded target protein, increase stability, and help the protein fold into its proper three-dimensional shape.  This allows the protein to be trafficked to the specific location in the cell, where it performs its intended biological function.  Pharmacological chaperone technology represents a novel, next-generation approach to the management of human genetic diseases and offers the potential to improve treatment options for patients. Founded in 2002, Amicus has assembled an outstanding leadership team that includes scientific, medical, regulatory, and business professionals with successful track records of developing and bringing to market drugs for rare genetic diseases. Amicus continues to develop its pharmacological chaperone technology and has built a significant intellectual property portfolio, as well as a robust clinical and preclinical pipeline of small molecule, orally-administered agents. Amicus’ most advanced product candidate, AT1001, is currently in Phase 2 clinical trials for Fabry disease.  In Phase 1 studies in healthy volunteers, AT1001 was well tolerated, even at the highest doses, without any drug-related adverse events.  In addition, AT1001 was shown to have high oral bioavailability and good pharmacokinetics. Finally, studies showed a statistically significant and dose-related increase in the level of the target enzyme in healthy volunteers. The company’s second most advanced clinical product candidate, AT2101, is in Phase 2 clinical trials for Gaucher disease.  Animal studies have demonstrated that administration of AT2101 causes a dose-dependent increase in the level of the enzyme known to be deficient in Gaucher disease. Amicus’ third most advanced product candidate is AT2220 for the treatment of Pompe disease.  Preclinical studies have demonstrated that administration of AT2220 causes an increase in the level of the enzyme known to be deficient in Pompe disease. Phase 1 trials are ongoing. Additionally, Amicus’ biologists and medicinal chemists are leveraging the company’s breakthrough scientific platform to conduct targeted drug development, allowing for the rapid identification and optimization of lead compounds across a variety of disease areas, including Parkinson's Disease. Amicus has broad, issued intellectual property around the methods, use, and composition of pharmacological chaperones to treat genetic diseases. In addition to the currently issued patents, Amicus has several patent applications pending. Amicus has attracted support from a number of leading venture firms and in 2006 completed a $60 million Series D financing. Amicus Therapeutics' headquarters and laboratories are located in Cranbury, NJ.

    ScaleMP

    ScaleMP

    ScaleMP has developed the versatile SMP (vSMP) architecture, a unique approach that enables server vendors to create industry-standard, high-end x86-based symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) systems. The vSMP architecture is implemented through the vSMP Foundation firmware which, combined with standard hardware components, enables large shared memory systems ranging from 8 to 64 CPUs in size.

    ScaleMP and its industry-leading partners team-up to deliver vSMPowered™ systems with superior performance at x86 server prices. These systems conserve the advantages of the traditional SMP operating model while leveraging the broad x86-based applications portfolio. vSMPowered™ systems support x86 operating systems such as Linux and Windows.

    End users benefit from the mass market economics of x86 systems, coupled with the ease of management and performance advantages of large shared memory systems. Market Dynamics According to IDC, customers spent $55B on servers in 2005, with approximately 30% of the spending on 8-64 CPU servers. Less than 10% of the 8-64 CPU servers sales were based on x86 technology. This low adoption rate is due to the significant investment required to design and build a framework (chipset) for large-scale x86 servers. Typically, this process can span anywhere from 12 to 36 months and requires an investment measured in the tens to hundreds of millions of dollars. ScaleMP's vSMP architecture now allows server vendors to rapidly and efficiently create such large-scale x86 offerings with minimal investmen

    Proofpoint

    About Proofpoint Comprehensive Messaging Security for the Enterprise The messaging infrastructure in most large organizations is under constant attack from incoming threats that hinder productivity, waste resources, and add new risks in the form of network impacts, downtime, or even employee lawsuits.

    But messaging security involves much more than simply stopping spam, fraud and viruses. The enterprise is also facing a security challenge from within the organization in the form of outgoing email content that can leak through the messaging infrastructure—unintentionally or maliciously—and cause harm. A growing number of corporate policies and regulatory compliance mandates have arisen in recent years, and IT departments are pressured to ensure that messaging coming into and out of an enterprise is secure and compliant with policies and regulations.

    Proofpoint, Inc. is the leading provider of enterprise-class messaging security solutions that protect organizations from the threats and risks of both inbound and outbound email and other messaging streams. Proofpoint's comprehensive platform enables companies to stop spam, defend against viruses and network attacks, and prevent leaks of confidential or sensitive information.

    Futureproof Messaging Security in a Single PlatformProofpoint solutions are built on a modular, highly extensible architecture that can easily evolve to address future threats or message streams. Designed specifically for large enterprises, Proofpoint messaging security solutions are the first to combine anti-spam, anti-virus, and robust outbound content security features in a single platform.

    • Most Accurate Content Classification with Proofpoint MLX™: Proofpoint is the only vendor to apply advanced machine learning techniques to messaging security, resulting in more thorough and accurate classification of unstructured content as found in email messages and attachments containing valuable or non-public information. Proofpoint MLX™ technology is the basis for unrivaled anti-spam accuracy, advanced content classification capabilities, and intelligent perimeter security features such as reputation-based traffic control.

    • True Enterprise-class Platform: The Proofpoint messaging security solution scales indefinitely to support millions of messages per day. Proofpoint servers and appliances can be easily deployed in industry-standard cluster configurations to support complex or geographically distributed data centers. The Proofpoint Messaging Security Console provides a centralized, web-based administration interface for complete visibility into the state of the enterprise messaging system.

    ProtoStar

    ProtoStar

    ProtoStar’s business model offers a highly customer-focused, consultative approach that enables our in-region partners to focus on what they do best - deliver reliable, cost-effective small dish television services to the consumer.

    Solutions that allow DTH providers to focus on their core business
    Operational efficiency is crucial to maintaining business viability which is why service providers are relying increasingly on scaleable resources to manage the demands of their spaced-based operations. Whether a new or existing DTH operator, ProtoStar is uniquely positioned to meet customers’ current power/footprint requirements and future growth projections with customized transponder configurations that deliver fully optimized, high-power FSS and BSS Ku capacity blocks. Importantly, ProtoStar can offer its in-region partners customized financing arrangements to cover comprehensive packaged satellite services and large blocks of transponders.

    The company plans to launch the first of its satellite fleet in second quarter 2008 and is actively collaborating with in-country governmental agencies and industry members in the planning of their future capacity demands.
     

    ProtoStar Technology Platform Advantages

    ProtoStar’s Higher Power Means Customers Use A Smaller Dish
    In the DTH business there is a direct correlation between a satellite's power and the size of the required receiving dish - the higher the power, the smaller the dish. ProtoStar's contoured footprints are tailored to bring designated power levels to specific regions in Asia. Optimum power is delivered based on the unique Ku band BSS orbital slot and the latest generation of Lockheed-Martin developed satellite technology. This enables the use of small 50 cm. dishes that are easy to install and configure, in addition to being significantly more stable.


    Expanded Breadth of Choice
    The next generation of DTH services will go far beyond the small number of existing free-to-air channels currently available. Instead, ProtoStar will deliver between 60 to 150 channels of entertainment, educational, news and sports programming. Additionally, pay-per-view and audio channels will provide even more compelling choices. This diversity and quantity of content options will differentiate the DTH competition. In turn, the quality and capacity of the satellite provider to deliver these channels will drive market share for DTH service providers through greater subscriber satisfaction.


    Overcoming Rain Interference
    In Asia, the issue of rain attenuation, which can severely impact the signal quality, is a major concern for satellite-based subscribers and their service providers. As a result, a critical factor in determining the success of DTH service will be the power of the satellite signal. The higher the power, the better the signal quality during high rain/monsoon conditions. Current FSS based satellite systems are not able to generate and focus the clarity of power over a wide footprint the way new BSS satellites can. Given the current and forecast growth of DTH services in Asia, only those service providers utilizing high power BSS transponders will be positioned to deliver the quality of service demanded during the region's frequent turbulent weather conditions.

     

    More Than Just Entertainment
    As subscribers become more sophisticated and demanding, DTH providers will need to deliver programming in local languages and dialects. Programs will be translated and dubbed with various audio tracks delivered over multiple channels. New value added services will be offered through advances in set-top-box technology to provide broadband Internet connections, security firewalls and ultimately Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) for "TiVo" type playback services. ProtoStar has the power and capacity to deliver on these new market requirements.
     

    ProtoStar is High Definition TV Enabled From The Start
    The launch of High Definition Television (HDTV) will be a welcome catalyst for the industry to launch a whole new generation of satellite delivered broadcast services. As seen in Japan and North America, HDTV is driving new television flat screen design and audio surround sound systems that can only be delivered immediately through high power satellite DTH providers. While the cable industry is slowly converting its terrestrial systems, its progress is slow and the accompanying video and audio systems are not competitive. As a result, the early consumer adaptors of HDTV are subscribing in increasing numbers to satellite delivered HDTV to immediately take  advantage of HDTV services. ProtoStar is capable of delivering HDTV services immediately.

    Tableau Software

    Tableau Software

    Tableau Software began as an extensive R&D project inside Stanford University’s prestigious Department of Computer Science. Sponsored by the U.S. Departments of Defense and Energy, a team of Stanford Ph.D. researchers solved one of the most difficult problems in computer science: enabling people to see and understand the information in databases. Under the leadership of Dr. Pat Hanrahan and Dr. Chris Stolte, our company has produced a fundamentally new way of interacting with the same relational and OLAP databases that are the backbone of the global database and business intelligence markets.


    Tableau Software is the leading provider of visual analysis and reporting solutions. Our products help people see and understand the information in databases by enabling them to build drag & drop analyses of their business data. The results are visual, insightful, and unlike anything you've seen. They help people save time and make better decisions. The success of products in the BI industry depends critically on people's ability to easily extract information from complex databases of varying formats. To that end, Tableau products set the new standard for visual analysis. They enable people of any technical skill to analyze databases of any query language by simply building drag & drop visualizations of what they want to see.


    Although visual interfaces and databases are two of the success stories of the computer revolution, their synergy to date has been modest, probably because visual interfaces have focused on human capabilities while databases have focused on efficient query processing. How did Tableau become the breakthrough leader in visual analysis for databases?  Our products are built on a database visualization language called VizQL™ (Visual Query Language). It represents a fundamentally new architecture for database interaction. What is VizQL™? It's like SQL. The development of SQL led to a revolution in database technology. Suddenly, complex queries were easily described as readable text. Programmers were freed from writing custom procedural programs in order to query corporate databases and instead could compose simple statements. VizQL™ marks a similar step forward. What SQL did for database interactions in text form, VizQL™ does for database interactions in visual form. Sophisticated visualizations are described by declarative VizQL™ statements. The standard approach when developing analysis systems is to provide a set of pre-canned objects — bar chart objects, scatter-plot objects, etc. This legacy approach is similar to selling a database with six “pre-approved” queries rather than with a complete query language like SQL. Tableau's VizQL™ approach provides a “Lego set” for database visualization. It marks a revolution for reporting and analysis for business users.The Tableau Software team includes renowned thought leaders from three different industries: Databases, Graphics, and Business Intelligence. Our culture is based on breakthrough innovation and customer success.

    Tableau's family of customers includes leading companies from every industry, from F500 multi-nationals and the U.S. government, to small consultancies. Our products are in use today by business intelligence professionals, marketers, market researchers, analysts, financial planners, strategic planners, sales departments, supply-chain specialists, national security specialists, engineers, scientists, social scientists and executives around the world.

    Securent

    Securent

    Securent was founded in 2004 by industry veterans who have a proven track record of delivering game-changing enterprise software products. While Entitlement Management is not a new problem, Securent’s founders recognized that companies did not have a simple and standardized method to administer role- and rule-based policies. To compensate for these shortcomings, companies were forced to build and deploy custom-coded entitlements into each application. With the typical Fortune 1000 company running thousands of applications, this manual approach is labor intensive, time consuming and leads to inconsistent application of policies that can exacerbate security vulnerabilities. To address these issues, Securent’s founders pioneered the company’s flagship product, its Entitlement Management Solution (EMS), to enable organizations to secure sensitive applications and data with ease and precision. Securent’s EMS is the first XACML standard-based solution that allows organizations to create, enforce, review, and audit fine-grained access policies across heterogeneous application and IT environments distributed throughout the enterprise, all with centralized management and visibility. Securent sells its products to enterprises or government agencies that need to control access to sensitive applications or confidential information, including customer data, employee records, product plans, or financial statements. Securent’s customers are assured that their customers, partners, contractors, employees, and auditors get appropriate and context-dependent levels of access to sensitive applications and confidential information. Today, many Fortune 500 customers are realizing the significant cost, time to market, and compliance benefits of Securent’s EMS. Securent’s patent-protected product and market leadership have been recognized by leading industry analyst firms such as Gartner, Burton Group, and Forrester. Securent is headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., with sales offices throughout the U.S., and development in Hyderabad, India. The company is backed by funding from Greylock Partners and ONSET Ventures.

    VLSI Technology

    VLSI Technology

    VLSI Technology, Inc was a company which designed and manufactured custom and semi-custom ICs. The company was based in Silicon Valley, with headquarters at 1109 McKay Drive in San Jose, California. Along with LSI Logic, VLSI Technology defined the leading edge of the application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) business, which accelerated the push of powerful embedded systems into affordable products. The company was founded in 1979 by a trio from Fairchild Semiconductor by way of Synertek - Jack Balletto, Dan Floyd, Gunnar Wetlesen - and by Doug Fairbairn of Xerox PARC and Lambda (later VLSI Design) magazine. Alfred J. Stein became the CEO of the company in 1982. Subsequently VLSI built its first fab in San Jose; eventually a second fab was built in San Antonio, Texas. VLSI had its initial public offering in 1983, and was listed on the stock market as (NASDAQ: VLSI). The company was later acquired by Philips and survives to this day as part of NXP Semiconductors. The original business plan was to be a contract wafer fabrication company, but the venture investors wanted the company to develop IC (Integrated Circuit) design tools to help fill the foundry.

    Zappos.com

    Zappos.com

    Zappos.com is an online shoe and apparel shop currently based in Henderson, Nevada. In July 2009, the company announced it would be acquired by Amazon.com in an all-stock deal worth about $1.2 billion. Since its founding in 1999, Zappos has grown to be the largest online shoe store. Zappos was founded by Nick Swinmurn in 1999. The initial inspiration came when he couldn’t find a pair of brown Airwalks at his local mall. That same year, Swinmurn approached Tony Hsieh and Alfred Lin with the idea of selling shoes online. Hsieh was initially skeptical, and almost deleted Swinmurn’s voice mail. After Swinmurn mentioned that "footwear in the US is a 40 billion dollar market and 5% of that is already being sold by paper mail order catalogs," Hsieh and Lin decided to invest $500,000 through their investment firm Venture Frogs. The company was officially launched in June 1999, under the original domain name "ShoeSite.com." A few months after their launch, the company's name was changed from ShoeSite to Zappos (a variation of "zapatos," the Spanish word for "shoes") so as not to limit itself to selling only footwear. In January 2000, Venture Frogs invested additional capital, and allowed

    Luxtera

    Luxtera

    Traditional electrical connectivity is a remarkably robust technology which has provided many generations of bandwidth for applications ranging from Local Areas Network (LAN) to chip-to-chip interconnect. However, as bandwidth requirements scale up to and beyond 10 gigabits per second per channel, electrical links become shorter in reach while consuming increasing power. Eventually at certain speeds, electrical connectivity becomes impractical. Photonics, the engineering of optical circuits, has been enormously successful at long distances, creating the basis for the telecom revolution. However, the high costs associated with photonics have prevented its mass-market adoption in shorter reach applications such as LANs. These costs are attributable to a combination of factors, most particularly the fact that photonic devices have traditionally been built using relatively exotic materials such as Indium Phosphide and Gallium Arsenide that are outside the manufacturing experience of the mainstream, silicon-centric semiconductor industry. Luxtera was formed in 2001 to take advantage of the fact that with production CMOS line widths in the vicinity of 100nm the CMOS process itself can be used to create an array of complex photonic devices. Luxtera’s CMOS Photonics™ devices are fully integrated with CMOS electronics and are also orders of magnitude smaller (and hence in many cases faster) than traditional photonic elements. Because Luxtera leverages the extraordinary economies and infrastructures of CMOS in terms of software, processing, testing and packaging, it is the first company to build photonic solutions that is truly “fabless” in the sense that from the very beginning Luxtera’s chips have been fabricated in one of the world’s major fine-line width production CMOS processes. Luxtera’s product roadmap is focused on fulfilling the insatiable demand for bandwidth by directly integrating high speed fiber-optic network interfaces into standard CMOS chips. Luxtera’s products are designed scale up not just in their ability to move huge amounts of data from one chip to another (with virtually no regard to distance or bandwidth), but also to leverage Moore’s Law to build exponentially increasing amounts of data processing inside the network interface itself. Luxtera’s culture is focused on being the best in the world at everything we do. Caltech, one of the world’s eminent technical institutions, provided us with our initial base of intellectual property and serves as an ongoing R&D partner. Our venture capital is provided by some of the world’s most successful venture capital partnerships (Sevin Rosen Funds New Enterprise Associates, and August Capital). Our team includes accomplished business and technical leaders from a cross-section of the world’s major technology companies and academic institutions including: AMD, Caltech, Intel, JDSU, Lucent, Motorola, MIT, Nortel, Stanford and Tellabs. Last but not least, we’re located in one of the greatest places to live in the world, the southern California coast north of San Diego.

    Theravance

    Theravance

    The key elements of our strategy are to: Apply our expertise in multivalency primarily to validated targets to efficiently discover and develop superior medicines in large markets. Our drug discovery efforts are based on our expertise in multivalency. Multivalency involves the simultaneous attachment of a single molecule to multiple binding sites on one or more biological targets. We believe that by applying our expertise in multivalency we can discover medicines that will be superior to many market-leading medicines by substantially improving potency, duration of action and/or selectivity. Identify two structurally different product candidates in each therapeutic program whenever practicable. We believe that this can increase the likelihood of successfully bringing superior medicines to market. Partner with global pharmaceutical companies to accelerate development and commercialization of our product candidates. Our strategy is to seek collaborations with leading global pharmaceutical companies, such as GlaxoSmithKline and Astellas Pharma Inc., to accelerate development and commercialization of our product candidate pipeline at the strategically appropriate time. Leverage the extensive experience of our people. We have an experienced senior management team with many years of experience discovering, developing and commercializing new medicines with companies such as Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Gilead Sciences, Inc., GlaxoSmithKline, Merck & Co., Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Pfizer Inc. Improve, expand and protect our technical capabilities. We have created a substantial body of know-how and trade secrets in the application of our multivalency approach to drug discovery. We expect to continue to make substantial investments in multivalency and other technologies to maintain what we believe are our competitive advantages in drug discovery.
