Motivated by President Obama's speech promoting the American Jobs Act, Christopher Young, a fledgling entrepreneur, came up with a give-away plan for his new video-recruiting company, Async. Each of the first 100 companies to sign up will receive 50 free video interviews. It's a "very clever" way to demonstrate the technology, said Dwight Carey, a professor and adviser at Temple's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Institute. Tying the approach to the jobs speech is likely to get Async "a lot of mileage," Carey said.
