The MC GUM Experience
History will tell you that India and Pakistan have always been on opposing ends, while USA and Pakistan, and Germany and USA, have rarely teamed up to achieve the same objective. MBS, however, provided the opportunity for an American, a German, an Indian, a Pakistani, and a Colombian to come together as a team and work towards achieving one goal. It all began around the 3rd week of the pre-MBA when I received a call from Matt Brown who wanted to know whether I had joined a team for the upcoming Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC). He mentioned that he was looking to form a team along with Maxi and Catalina, and asked ... market research, surveys and trends

Come See the Incredible, Shrinking VC Industry!
by National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and Thomson Reuters. The trend, which first started in 2008, has only accelerated. During the second quarter of 2010, new money committed to venture funds plunged 49 percent from the previous quarter and 57 percent from the same period a year ago. NVCA believes the soft economic environment is to blame for much of the recent decline in new funds. The latest quarter saw 38 funds raise $1.91 billion — the lowest level since the third quarter of 2003. There were 26 follow-on funds and 12 new funds raised in the second quarter of 2010, NVCA noted. These included new funds by ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The gap in NewSpace business plans
Rocketplane, in the end, went out not with a bang but with a whimper, one so faint it literally took weeks for the rest of the space industry to notice that the launch company was finally, officially, out of business. In mid-June Rocketplane filed bankruptcy papers with the state of Wisconsin, where the company and its suborbital and orbital subsidiaries, Rocketplane Global and Rocketplane Kistler, had been based since leaving Oklahoma last year. The filings went unannounced and unnoticed until the Oklahoma Gazette , an alternative weekly publication in Oklahoma City, reported on the filings last week . While many companies in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Or even just get the meeting with a venture capital company... I have a new business I'd like to start and was wondering what my chances are. I'm not comfortable at this point to share my idea, so let's pretend it has some merit and could be successful. Thanks! I don't know the statistical odds but I suggest you not worry about those. If you put together the right stuff, your odds are much higher than the overall numbers. Many people pitch VCs without much chance of getting funding because they don't know what they are doing.
