I ask you sure you apply to have you on -- -- Seattle on the owner our analysts I would love. The other enterprises -- singles specialist Leon turner Casey killed. To -- next week. -- Kansas City and welcome back to the entrepreneur KC show. I'm your host Jay seem real thanks for joining us today on. 16:6 AM and on line -- team BZ dot com. Our next segment we have a great entrepreneur and -- -- -- I was connected to him through the young entrepreneur council we had a Scott Gerber on the show recently. His name is David -- it's easy CEO of CMX media. He's -- -- -- Cisco but we have them on the phone today in New York City David -- this afternoon. -- urban. Good good good -- Tulsa Tribune at the New York City right now. Our -- -- I come back often I grew up to New Yorkers. Every year my girlfriend appeared because trip. From -- country often. Let's eyes that say it's a long flight but I'm sure it's it's nice Sera. Girlfriend see Stanley so. Tulsa about -- your background I know that you really been big with community building and I'm hoping to east right through your entrepreneurial career. Yes I had been building pretty much communities and startup firm. My entire career. You know actually my third start out. Multiple communities or completely -- -- lead led you to meet peak each. Got a lot of -- communities kind of on the side or tried projects. So kind of everything have been. That -- -- has been around. How to connect people with each other and and I enjoyed building couldn't believe you products -- big company trying to help people smoke. The last company of -- -- of people on the cook. Before that we had a -- aren't they actually conducted for the two bloggers. And now would feel that it's kind of the culmination of everything I've done in my career. As where we're trying to pretty much greater cultural place. Have a real strong competition to learn about how to build community and I'm a professional level. -- -- published -- next summit which is a big event all around community building where we have speakers for cook -- the Indian left. I had yeah you know psychologists. We have got a big -- not -- -- PR -- We're really unique -- all around how to connect people to each other. Who -- into our country is in your -- truth go will be launched in other countries learn. While also doing smaller events are live and online publication. And the French people in the central media print or around. The community industry. There inching stuff I mean it's. You know there's always this things in life free you think back to them pretty outgoing guys to David and you know you -- these great relationship she you feel like you know it's a the F a passion for you connect people left and right be always one to yourself how to make creative business. And then and put food on the table with these great skill sets I have and usually it's you know through referrals or through. You know you know working with different tests people on partnership is for you managed to do that. Through your own businesses and companies and kind of calming thank you said with. The CMX summit. Tell me about. You know we talked about the speakers and and you have a strong list. Tony kind of about take me through one of these summits in town of what happens. On a typical summer that you guys put on. Yeah our current and they're pretty -- so we're currently experimenting with different formats and a hundred years. But basically we do -- could help talks so keep your -- talking with similar style to ask each talks about twenty minutes. Each speaker is either a CEO our founder of the big kind of community -- company. There are community professional. Usually VP level community professionals. Or they have this unique restrictive terms science art. Currency ecology from some sort of need to restrict our community. And usually early -- one day events and -- that where the speaker shouldn't -- aren't. They share their stories they'd be focused on one actionable kind of -- an -- -- a lot lately as. You know typical conference and at least we -- action network and create a lot of opportunities for their. The -- -- connect with each other are worried again lodging workshops in the future as well -- we can do a little bit like more hands aren't. Tactical commanders. Training. Not just -- frequent speaker but I should be able to literature specific charges -- -- -- Much closer look at these -- speakers. You know open discussion kind of formats. So we -- just experimenting with -- is to really pushed through the quality of content around it means little community to a much higher level. And that's that's something that is really instinct is I can't I obviously haven't been -- these types of events of I feel like to -- learn these things usually just through you know trial on air and being good human being in working together but. I mean if there's a way to connect with people that do this for a living there are professional. A team builders have perspectives and can share those with you and in any event like an event like this answer to skirt New York. Obviously you're gonna meet other community -- -- meet other people that are in your. -- -- ecosystem if you will to help you grow your business and to become more successful so I think it's I think it's very unique we're talking to you David sinks the CMX media founder and CEO. You guys can -- check out this CMX summit. At CMX summoned dot com there's an event coming up. You know drag down the road here it's going to be November. Thirteenth 2014. That starting at 8 o'clock in San Francisco California. You've been lining of seekers -- for him for not already having Davis. Barely large sharp -- fail so it's really early just so little. I'll preview for our existing community and will be in downstream director of the speaker lineup -- a lot more detailed. In the next month. So what are you when you travel around obviously and you know. Built these companies. What are you seeing right now kind of on the road with -- this community builder in this. This the start up entrepreneur early ecosystem I mean it's more than just your -- is -- these days is an. Yeah I mean it's everywhere on the charter school like whatever just do. Vacation and or travel anywhere I try to meet up -- -- other partners and are in the country actually deter that. I have -- of culture. Often. As far as funding dollars. And possibly huge -- he had on neutral community even that last one whichever -- chooses you know -- Obama. To assure he has no levels so we do. You know they're they're amazing sort of trees everywhere. And the value of being in in the Valerie is indicative. Helped demonstrators -- how much. There is going on there. Well -- data that also comes and it's caddie -- -- little bit overwhelming at times and and you don't get necessarily that small kind of humble really supportive community that you might find somewhere else where where you're more of -- -- -- out has rather than Detroit although obviously -- start out. And so maybe that's where our tradition really culture of -- it's going to rebel the person who's an expert in. Away from the bid would be trapped returns to yield. We're content -- it's almost become like expected to be OK -- you know it. It's a different culture. Eaten into New York which is -- -- seem so arbitrary. You know humble everyone's really proud to be neither company is proud to represent. Arms Siskel to suit different different -- cultures in each community. In the different that they are. Couldn't agree more we got about a minute left David tell me about the south. Euros let's see steam -- you started I can't cook at all and I would never go to cooking class what does that do for me. Yes surcharge started it I like the actual practice -- cocaine habit and habit and the likes so electoral process so that is what Jeremy critique. Whatever are trying to -- all the classes -- recipes which kind of give either -- peeked into coach going to be a lot of work he traveled to Gregory nice by. You know I'd wake up an experience they'll be no closer to being somebody that -- cook for themselves like. It's been the difference between. Learning how to cook and learning how to -- -- -- -- Until we need to try to build a program that focuses on the latter. Where it's not about cooking their exit for the recipe that is about. -- learning how to build a -- sold cocaine into your daily routine. They're actually know recipes in the program that's built for busy professionals reaching kind of he won election navigation tree dates that are super quick. Very cool David David Cink sink circle an entrepreneur KC show old deathly check out CMX summit dot com have a -- Manuel talked to since -- -- -- We're right back and young trainer Casey -- Look Kansas City and welcome CD on turner Casey showed her hosts.

It's gone pretty well so. One to continue on the show today. And less than we talked about some exciting events on the west testimony can kind of continue that. And talk about day of really up and coming community. That has been doing great things we had frank Gruber. On the show before whose. Based in Las Vegas as well and travels back and forth from DC. But we have never had. Indy light on the show and eighty YE. Is gonna be coming to Kansas City next week on August 21. He's the keynote speaker at the ITC. The un conference which is a big event this can be put on by the chamber. Groups like think big Kansas City all different types of entrepreneurs will be there. And so wanted to have them on the show after talking to you. Are people in the community. People at the chamber and wanted to hear more about what's going on in Las Vegas his background and what he's thinking about coming to Kansas City so we have 81 and the line from Italy from Las Vegas today Harry Indy. You're very charming -- it's great to have you on. I believe you went to college somewhere in the Midwest City -- Such perks urgently borders to it and Illinois and -- and -- -- now -- university. And the debt stating their war almost sixty years. Let's say -- you you you understand count in the midwest of Missouri Illinois Kansas area that's for sure after -- on their want to schools Saint Louis University so. Southern Illinois I was wrecked on the road. -- knew nothing about southern Illinois Intel went to school their -- But anyways. It's also about your background in entrepreneurship. You know obviously we'll get to the Vegas doesn't while that just tell us about your back any kind of how you are kind of that your career. Yet sure. So when you went -- -- -- university. After armored rare. Started chew on and get into that you've fad that was called the Internet at the time. And did you end -- a dial up in her service provider. And then eventually was spun -- into a lot of development firm. But then started to specialize. You end applications for K12 school districts. And with our company that we protect others called school center. Bring about -- about fourteen years. In and as we were working our way of what that's. What -- and -- do that then I had moved out to. So which city. -- -- Great play solid city have been there -- a few times and and it's it's growing quickly to a match for our ecosystem as well. Yeah absolutely. And I got a great fortune they're -- Invest in and that also become the executive director for -- start which they kick start network affiliates. -- accelerator program. -- public. That really gave me a chance to jump back into the modern start methodology. Things have changed quite a bit in the fifteen years since I started my company. England. Compare. And so continued to grow. Expected him to be your biggest action unity through in. Entrepreneur -- that called -- -- Stand out from their mind. Passion and so happening here just continued to to grow and each of the products. Stronger and stronger ties. There became shorter time between my that the moment it -- longer. And the foreign ignorance whenever we look at that. And it's rice and he didn't think when -- colleges southern Illinois the -- live in Las Vegas says. Expect him and it's -- years ago right. No not at all. I had an immediate than your typical visitor I'll probably hear thirty or more times. Achievement for a bachelor party straight showed stayed on the strip. And after -- never really not an insult what it would be like to liquor. I'm surprisingly enough there -- real people here that actually. Have a job -- cool things happen in it's. You know that side are saying it's that. Great attraction to bring people in the town. But there's a lot of other great work at school inaudible. The other really is a vaccine had a chance to visit. I was on -- tech -- last year with a couple people you might have meant that we get a chance to tour the area down there in downtown the biggest project and you know it was it was a lot of fun actually -- it shows you -- what else is going on in the city and and whatnot and actually will be gone back there in October and doing the a wedding in Las Vegas I'll be doing the things -- used to do before you were resonant. But I had a bit more on that and in the future. Talk any any wide use a partner at the biggest tech funds so maybe it's also about what the Vegas tech fund does. And what your role is there. The techcrunch is a part of the downtown project. Our primary goal is to help accelerate your revitalization of downtown must -- get. At the part of that. Your four different areas. That we were quest. We have 200 million dollars allocated to -- the bill -- We have fifty million dollars allocated youth education and arts. Another fifty million allocated -- small didn't developments. And then that's fifty million dollars for the Turks on the side that I work -- These areas that we can have the most are trapped on. Are helping to -- and be creative class in downtown must say yes. You know and we do that by investing in technology companies that have our growth potential. They are creating -- will be able to missions within our company. So that as they hire people. Doesn't -- have a chance to grow and expand within the company. And not just treating an -- global contention of some sort of just -- a division to the area. The goal of the Corky in here contributing to community over the. Very very cool and so you guys really having a -- methodology and a process. You know in different investment funds out there it sounds like. What what types of founder -- note do you look for. To invest. Let's start out that some would be more traditional. Types. Statement of the teams you wanna make sure that they're the team that shown that they can work well together. That they can execute on their vision. Accountability. And clearly good product markets had been known to their customers aren't they can get that and have a product out in the market they're actually learning from from what real customers are doing. I have felt pretty traditional. That's what most investors looking for. In addition to that. We also liked you have teams that value to beat. Now the community and the involvement in the community. They understand the value -- give before he gets. That we all work together we're all gonna be much better off if anyone can go on their own and tried to be successful work without. We're creating some sort of fought competition in the war horse or keeping. Amongst the community. We we liked -- very open and collaborative community. We think its partner the keys to. You know let lane gets on the law like what's happening in Vegas is that's what's happening seems a city obviously we don't have the 350 million dollars and money allocated I guess you'd say at this point. Which you guys obviously that's very unique for Vegas and obviously very attractive for. You know potential founders and start ups and and and digging you know funding and whatnot and building a community. In downtown Las Vegas you know. One thing we have here obviously is it sounds similar what you have is that community that that. Now wanting to see your your fellow man or woman succeeded FL start -- succeed and all I noticed in the last two or three years since I've been heavily involved in this community -- this radio shows that. They couldn't be more true obviously we had a group of your spark was this was the funding and all the different things going on downtown Vegas ours is the Google fiber announcement. But since then it's really been about community and I really feel like just listen you talk about Vegas it's very similar. Two three were building in Kansas City. Which brings me to my next point you are going to be coming to Kansas City here. Next week tell me about how to act that came to be and was sure to -- on that trip. -- Part of our our mission here is to make sure that we're constantly. All the Wear and perhaps. We've been doing its war on wall streeters now he -- were getting fuel. Be turned in the middle of a fate to of of what we're doing so we're really looking at what's next. And the big part of that is that it didn't all about -- how much they get we've known that from the beginning. Of the initial focus was to build some momentum here so that he. Had some real -- -- -- the work from. But that the ultimate goal is to really understand. What does it take to grow at city at a rapid pace. So that we can keep up with the changes that are happening on the ground. So the next phase of that that it can get more tightly connected in Q other cities. Screened out these programs have been they're doing to also help. -- -- -- And then on the other -- and on ways that we can share that cooperating and working and it didn't matter. There's no need for all of us to learn each of these lessons individually. We have the ability to communicate you know and in ways that we haven't had in the past. And it'll you know the -- at all. Couldn't agree more -- could agree more and I think that's. Really exciting and that's you know a lot of people you know why's he so way you know you've had people from Vegas on the show you really talk about like you visited that. You know hearing that and that it's more than just your city it's also connecting entrepreneurs is -- sprinkle us. You know how -- we grow a written you know this ecosystem wrap early in different places is really important and so. -- guys will be at the I TC the un conference on August 21. 2014 you go to. I Casey and the young conference dot com. To get a tickets this is an event that's been around for a few years now it's powered by the greater can't -- chamber of commerce and think big partners.

And her life right now I know I tell you want to we'll tell our listeners just gotta tie yes started you know in in in doing this and work in the new business in being a film critic. I think like most successful people it starts with the parents I mean he goes way back in the day you know -- got to give all the credit to. My mom mom mom was the original movie lover and -- house and I remember as a kid who went to the movies every single weekend grown up in Kansas City. And in Princeton, New Jersey and kind of swung back and or indifference and a -- left friends. That's the hustle play almost like five minutes from New York City yeah yeah exactly -- grandparents aunts and uncles all still live in Princeton but I yeah I went to the movies. Every week and what my mom so when I was about 567 years old just hit me like -- did this and that. My mom with them to educators he was a teacher and anybody who grew up with a parent as a teacher knows it can be tough at times. I just turned her and asked why I love movies how to make movies she's a teacher of course she would Magid media easy answers to me in the car drove me to a library at a check out books. How movies were made once I found out almost -- Went to a polish up on a super eight millimeter camera yes I'm old. Looks young men -- but I am. Oh about a super eight millimeter camera went to the camera store about a couple cartridges the film and -- -- to -- my own movies and I'm. That's where I began I got hooked I got hooked it early data kept doing it all through school here. And just so happens -- high school and there was this academic competition that was sponsored by the NAACP. And then had like 24 different academic categories. One of the last categories on the sheet was filmmaking and I started competing men started winning and -- I'm just gonna do this to rest in my life so I -- started off as a filmmaker and went to college and studied television film production and shot movies in college but I also minor in journalism which is high ended up on other side it is business so -- You just never know where that window of opportunity will happen and you got to be prepared to jump through it and as well how did -- tell him through a competitive industry it is all right it's as good TV greater and without TV in general very competitive TV in general also fickle. In TV in general is in a state of flux right now because there's so many different ways people gather information and it happened so quick and so fast to -- Twitter is. You know aren't -- -- may leave. But it's also like a big competitor today and who can -- news the fastest but I mean it that there always will be challenges but it has been very fine. There's been rewarding but on this entertainment movie side I mean I've learned a lot especially about the business of movies which which I. Really like to relish in in and really study and learn more more and about extensive if there is a really fascinating industry I mean I know no more on television I'm reviewing movies -- like -- critiquing artistic side. But I love the business side. What what's that experience been like for you I mean you're travel light and realize thousands I would be jealous yeah drive back and forth to these greens and Ortiz. You know interview he celebrities and what's so like forgot it's always dreamed of like kind of being. Know it's funny people is -- like you know who's the most famous person and are you know who's the nicest person and mr. coolest person. I like talking to the studio so I -- good people behind this these studio guys to marketing guys to producers like talking to the people who make it happen. They give you do most insight on how this business actually works but if I got a -- someone -- point for me and the list is long. Hello Larry how this whole business of making movies and promoting movies and sell the movies works and he talked to the key players behind the scenes amid numerous. People and those capacities that I swear I loved it I get the information indeed indeed engaged in gathering collect them. They look very I guess I -- when I was in politics was on it was an extra up in the air when I don't really. I -- like and I got this. Was influential try to bring it here but and a you know I guess in the -- Clooney right -- commands like it was like ethnic a 32 scene in the movie nobody remove her there for five hours. And we an enemy you're shooting it was like an hour you know it was like a two minute scene. Ivan Reitman or Jason Reitman takes its these -- Kid just just joking around all day man I was like this is cool music crafts lunch and hold the whole ordeal man I don't. Good thing is they know it is it's fascinating because people don't realize it when you shoot a movie -- employees so many people in so many different fields I mean -- that's why is this quarter of that tax strip for films and everybody got back -- we -- -- back and every. Jason I I talked to Jason last year at the Toronto film fast he's dying to shoot another movie Kansas City but he. Yes can get the tax credit at all right by these daily. He's a boy who live in Kansas City -- you know all the talk on the low. If he wants to should he think he's more institutional movie specifically Kansas City. Boogie king because is not economically feasible right now and where where -- -- and -- film right now rises Louisiana Stiller. And I know I'll tell you. Atlanta Georgia -- the George Carlin George south man in Atlanta Georgia is off by year right now but Louisiana's never really stepped out of the game. A Detroit was hot the Michigan area it was hot for many in North Carolina not too bad Albuquerque, New Mexico. Right now Atlanta Georgia is clean it right and that's the finding is you'll realize that. Yeah Mikey you've where movies are action films shooting everything in every. Every major stars does that. LA the LA Atlanta Olympics hearts go -- I got to Atlanta for firing at TV and movies on the -- Bullets into this new role he just taken on in this event. -- he gets in time the can't see Jewish film festival it's October 11 through October 19 tell -- -- the show on and and you're running the show now. Well here's -- I recently was hired as the festival director eyes from the number wanted to do for a while to my affiliation Fox 4 News have been able to produce several other events in the past is sort of start without. A celebration of black film which we produced down on eighteenth and -- back in late 20078910. And then I did that created urban film festival 20101112. So. Always want to get that Omar Reza ma'am what I've been to several festivals around the world I love them I love the energy. If you're on a one of the smaller -- Columbia. It's true false unity and I don't go that Dario is cool -- got Minnesota Bittermann metadata explore some of the smaller ones now and -- actually run and a festival -- I was hired to run -- Jewish film festival I'm. It's actually been around for sixteen years is to succeed the at a festival. I. It features films with the Jewish twist which means most of the movies deal with the Jewish experience -- either directed written produced by someone Jewish descent are they come out of Israel because there's a huge film making community -- Israel and they -- producing some really great product that the basic premise of the -- Jewish confessed -- -- you do not have to be Jewish to enjoy. You don't have to be Jewish to buy tickets I mean we're really -- experiences you need to everyone's story and he's actually some pretty -- many movies that we've lined up so the festivals for every want but it does have a Jewish twist and as a director I'm just trying to add some new bells and whistles and -- for experienced. But I believe the one thing this sort of missing from the can't see the film landscape. Is that one true great film festival. Tournament -- way to kind of a mean mess in the of the film festivals that happening Candice -- aren't Great Britain but most cities are -- -- -- -- one signature film festival to sort of like puts that -- on the map and that's who and delegates Sundance right. I look at Sundance look at the Toronto international film festival Iraq in the film component with SXSW. In Austin has grown a brides are growing so. I in Kansas City deserves that I mean there are a lot of different film festivals in Kansas City but there's not that one signature film festival to sort of just. Stands out and screams like Kansas City their greatness unique. Mind parties movies so -- so we're gonna try to capture that and bring that to the table with the cancer the Jewish film festival. And what is the website for more information on its GCC Casey got or conduct or today and I can't have war all these different movie Sean I mean yeah we're gonna this is this. There's -- going to be this the sort special because we're we're staying true to the roots so we have -- fantastic Jewish Israeli type films. There -- gonna branch out to woo woo woo women reach all different cultures over a little bit of diversity so we have what we call a signature series. It will feature three films that aren't necessarily Jewish. And we also have a we called millennial series was gonna feature films and hopefully attract a younger more youthful audience to kind of hits that sort of demo. Right in the sweet -- You're not one thing Jerry Primakov foreign trying to make you hit try to make it cool and just -- -- by the they'll come out check out the movies and stories that we're gonna be held that. The bulk of the -- to happen at became the city Jewish community center -- the right the data but opening and closing night would take place it's in Tokyo. Eighteen and Opie and -- fire which is right down the street. From the -- Jewish community center -- maps and funds in the Toby it's a great place to watch movies for a I I loved the place and another. Like there are you gotta you gotta he's in those pictures on face today very tired really helpful for great atmosphere and say hey America I it has zero calm place but it is also going to be cool to show a lot of the movies that they can't -- Jewish community center so we're looking forward to that. Got some great movies lined -- and my -- -- would create some some different. So an offshoot so the first -- should be fundamentally to a lot of different people as well. Was shot IQ let's go yet we get -- minute few minutes left without a talking about some current mideast is due that Zumaya I have -- I actually -- -- don't watch American council this week it's America loves its products are now let's actually. -- -- but I just -- let you know that I will be -- but to Jameer. You're cutting your top three movies this year -- wow top three movies I've seen this year. And we know we having outs like Oscar time. We knew we I have seen the movie that they won't be a big player come Oscar time -- if you are a lover of film or cinema are just like movies in general. You have to see you must see boyhood -- it -- -- it's. Rigidly letters director it took them twelve years to -- this movie well captures delight that this young men every step of the way. From a technical aspect is brilliant I mean -- movie's strong as well. I didn't like the movie as much as I loved execution. My -- clean thing that rich and -- we'll get nominated for best director he probably should win because just what he did from directing standpoint this big. IQ now does that does that movie and our movies out right movie -- movie is out right now and what's your favorite movie of the year may surprise a lot of people fumble unbelievable. OK I read over USC so -- it's my presidency. But I love Demi and I do visuals. -- were crazy the writing that thinks those sarcastic in witty and funny. As well up remove the I love the leg and we better win best animated feature I love doing movies haven't felt I I would go trick there. I would go to number two with Lego movie and in the third movie in the movie that probably not a. Very many people have heard of but we are gonna screen as part of accusing Jewish film festival is called supremacy peca is directed by Dion Taylor it stars Danny Glover and and Evan Ross and it is about a white supremacist who gets out of prison. Breaks into this black family's home -- things and -- but it's so well done in says a lot about today's climate in terms of racial intolerance. Lack of diversity lack of understanding and how when things play out you realize hey we -- have more in common and you actually -- make great movies cost supremacy.
