¿En qué consiste la etapa de aceleración?
En Seedrocket el proceso de aceleración consiste en TRABAJAR y no perder el FOCO en tu proyecto. Se trata también de ubicarse en un espacio de coworking en el que compartes experiencias con emprendedores en tu misma situación, aprovechando muchísimas sinergias, se hacen contactos que pueden hacer que hagas nuevos clientes, y disponen del contacto de todos nuestros mentores, a los que puedes llamar siempre que necesites consejos.
Durante los meses en los que están ubicadas las empresas en la aceleradora (ya sea porque han sido startups ganadoras de Campus de Emprendedores, startups recomendadas por nuestros mentores o porque hayan participado en alguno de nuestros Investors’ Day u otra actividad de las que realizamos en SeedRocket), dos veces al mes realizamos un taller formativo totalmente organizado en función de las necesidades de los proyectos actuales que tengan los proyectos. Otras actividades que hacemos son los Friday Pizza, en los que invitamos a emprendedores de éxito a que cuenten su experiencia mientras comemos, el Mentor of the Month o los Happy Birra Day.
ABBOT, Maine A round of applause was given to Lorraine Leeman during the annual town meeting Monday in appreciation of her 17 years of service to the town.
Leeman, 68, decided this year to retire from the position, but she has agreed to serve as deputy town clerk.
”There comes a time when you know it’s time,” she said Tuesday. ”Everything was getting so technical and they keep making changes. You just get comfortable with doing something one way and they change it on you and some of those changes I’m not comfortable with.”
Before assuming the role of town clerk, Leeman served as a selectman for six years.
About 50 residents attended the meeting and elected Basil Patterson over former Selectman Corey Hill in a close vote, 29 26.
Blaire Fagan was returned to the SAD 4 board of directors and Heather Weymouth was elected treasurer. Melissa Hill, the former deputy town clerk, was elected town clerk. Hill received 40 votes to Barbara Brackett’s 13 votes.
Residents voted 39 2 to leave the administration account at $48,570, which means no raises will be provided this year.
The purchase of a compactor for the recycling program was approved, as were funds for a concrete pad for the compactor and a roof over the machine.

Given the incriminating tape of a damaging telephone conversation, the odds of his forestalling the inevitable were slim. But whatever chance of redemption Blagojevich had evaporated when he violated one of the basic ground rules of handling tough questions: answer the question. There’s a lesson to be learned for anyone in any situation by examining the answers Blagojevich gave during his appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live.”
You can see the full interview on YouTube, but the transcript of the key section provides a more objective view. Larry King showed Blagojevich a video clip of a press conference held by Patrick Fitzgerald, the United States attorney general investigating the case, in which the investigator told the world, “The governor’s own words describing the Senate seat: ‘It’s a bleeping valuable thing thing. You just don’t give it away for nothing.’ Another quote: ‘I’ve got this thing and it’s bleeping golden. And I’m just not giving it up for bleeping nothing. I’m not going to do it. And I can always use it. I can parachute me there.’”
BLAGOJEVICH: Well, I believe well, let me say, I know there were a whole bunch of conversations and discussions. And I had conversations with powerful people in America, with and I’d like to call them as witnesses. I want to call Rahm Emanuel, the president’s chief of staff, as a witness. He has said publicly on a national TV show, that his conversations with me were appropriate. I’d like to call Senator Dick Durbin, who I talked to about the Senate seat Harry Reid and Robert Menendez.
KING: But you’d remember if you said that, wouldn’t you?
KING: I mean that’s something you’d remember.
BLAGOJEVICH: I’d have to hear the tape. I’m not going to just assume or take that interpretation without having a chance to actually hear the tape. I will say this. There was a lot of talk over the period from the election a little bit before the election and up until that date when everything changed. And there was a lot of exchanging of ideas, asking questions, exploring all kinds of options, including Oprah Winfrey was part of the discussion. But never, not ever, did I ever have any intention to violate any criminal law and never was this about selling a Senate seat for any kind of personal gain for me. And.
KING: So then are you denying that you said that?
BLAGOJEVICH: I’m what I’m saying is that I have not committed any crime and I’m not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing and that there were a whole series of conversations. And taking snippets of conversations, not allowing them in the full context, doesn’t tell the whole story.
Larry King essentially asked the same question four times, and each time Blagojevich danced away from the answer. Granted, if Blagojevich had answered “yes,” he would have incriminated himself; if had answered “no,’ he might have perjured himself, but the larger point here is his digression. Shifting away from an issue to a positive point is known as spin. Spin is the lingua franca of politics, but is unacceptable in every other walk of life. In every other walk of life, accountability is obligatory.
Making positive points is an important maneuver in any exchange, but far more important is providing an answer to every question. Earn the right to spin by first answering the question.
