When Brad Ferguson left his home state of Utah to pursue a PhD in statistics at North Carolina State University in 2011, he figured he wouldn’t return. Not because he didn’t want to live in the state — but as a statistician, he didn’t think there were as many career opportunities in Utah as there were in places like Boston, Silicon Valley, and the North Carolina Research Triangle. At 31, Ferguson is back in Utah, working as a data scientist for Domo, a seven-year-old analytics company valued at $2.3 billion as of its last funding round. The reason he finally decided to move back home? “If Domo didn’t work out for whatever reason, [I felt] I could find another job really quickly and easily, with all these new businesses coming up,” Ferguson told VentureBeat.

Facing the uncertainty of life in post-Soviet Bulgaria, 18-year-old Vladimir Davchev moved to the United States in the late 1990s to pursue his education and dreams of working in the stock market. But after several disenchanting years, he decided to return to Sofia and pursue his entrepreneurial ambitions in the country’s capital. There wasn’t much of a startup community in Sofia more than a decade ago, but that didn’t stop him from cofounding a company that would evolve into online food delivery startup BGmenu. To his pleasant surprise, as BGmenu took shape and grew over the next few years, so did a striving startup scene, complete with the emergence of local venture funds, incubators, coworking spaces, and a growing entrepreneurial spirit. It was this startup community that cheered the loudest when BGmenu announced in February it had been acquired for almost $13 million by Netherlands-based Takeaway.com. Not only was it a big win for a Bulgarian startup, … [Read more...] about Bulgaria rising: Can a growing startup movement reinvent the country’s economy?

43,546 attendees. 7.2 TB of data downloaded at the conference, the equivalent of 1.8 million MP3s and 1,800 full-length movies. Yep, sounds like another Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society annual conference. Despite some fifteen consecutive years of attending the conference, the sensory overload of a HIMSS annual event never ceases to overwhelm, even with careful scheduling.
