Tell us what you do

I am an academic entrepreneur. I am raising and managing a university venture capital fund. I research and consult on university venture capital, the supply of venture capital in regions, the university's role in the facilitation of new venture creation. I'm a former venture capitalist from Silicon Valley (Dot Edu Ventures), internet and software entrepreneur (iLodging and New Era), incubator CEO (Student Agencies, Inc.) and co-founder (TechCube in Edinburgh). I also am a professor and teach entrepreneurship and other business subjects such as business and public policy and marketing.). I earned the BS from the School of Hotel Administration and the MBA from the Johnson School at Cornell University. Also I earned the MSc from the Business School of the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and am finishing a PhD at the same (university and public policy, entrepreneurship and the supply of entrepreneurial risk capital is my research focus).

Tell us what you're looking for

I am looking to meet entrepreneurs, venture financiers, and institutional investors in the USA and Canada. As I am conducting research in this area, I am looking for data and gaining of a better understanding of the opportunity for intervention and university involvement in the supply of risk capital for technology ventures. Also, I am looking for content for my blog, anything within my interest realm.
