Five Second Test – Landing Page Optimization For your Mocks and Wireframes
http://fivesecondtest.com/

Fine tune your landing pages and calls to action by analyzing the most prominent elements of your design. Works as follows: a) You upload a design – Upload your design, set some questions you want answered and wait for the feedback to roll in; b) Users complete your test – Testers have five seconds to view your image and must then answer the questions you have set; and c) They present your results – They collect the responses for you, extract the frequent keywords and then present the data with beautiful graphs. Five second tests help you understand people’s first impressions of your designs. By finding out what a person recalls about your design in just 5 seconds you can ensure that your message is being communicated as effectively as possible.

The director of RERI is Dr. Christopher Westley, Professor of Economics in the Lutgert College of Business. Beginning with the first quarter of 2012, RERI has issuined the Lee County Business Climate Survey Report. This quarterly report is a result of a partnership between The Horizon Council and Florida Gulf Coast University. The Horizon Council is a public-private board established in 1991 to advise the Lee County Board of Commissioners on economic development issues. The Report summarizes the results of the Executive Business Climate Survey. It provides a view of the local economy, based on responses from senior executives of companies from a broad range of industries across the county. In addition to this quarterly report, RERI continues to issue a monthly report: Regional Economic Indicators, which analyzes a wide range of economic data from the 5-county region of Southwest Florida. It also includes National economic data of interest. The monthly Indicators report has been issued since early 2007. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

FormDs.com – See Who Is Raising Money
http://www.formds.com/

They track investments into startups, growing businesses, hedge funds, and private equity firms. They do this by sorting, filtering and extracting critical information from the hundreds of SEC filings (called “Form Ds”) filed each day. They process SEC filings on a real-time basis. As a result, they frequently learn about new investments before newspapers and online publications. You can search for people, company names, specific industries, or focus on regions or cities. Nearly all startups and investment firms file Form Ds with the SEC when they raise money. A Form D filing contains: a) Amount of money raised; b) Equity or debt issuance; c) Industry category; d) Names of the executives and directors; e) Addresses for the company, executives, and directors; and f) Other information – brokers used, commission paid.
