This blog is designed to keep you updated with the most recent developments in the world of Venture Capital. This blog is about exciting and interesting stories about all kinds of ventures you can think of.
I created this blog to satisfy my appetite and thirst for new and innovative business idea. There are so many bold ideas out there that it is almost impossible to keep up with all of them. Even with most of them. Even for the people who work in VC and devote themselves with innovative concepts day in, day out. The more I got involved with the start up industry, the more I came to the conclusion that I needed to channel those great ideas and innovations in a blog.
My interest in the venture capital industry has been growing over the past years as I got more involved with people and their innovative ideas. I realized that it does not need an elite business man to come up with an innovative idea. The fact, that there simply is no profile for people involved – may it be entrepreneurs, investors or project developers – epitomizes the diversity and uniqueness of VC. More than anything though, it is the simple realization of one fact about life that describes the fascinating nature of changing the world as we know it (beautifully put into words by a man who changed the world himself):
“When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money.
That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is – everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.
That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.”
– Steve Jobs † Oct. 5th, 2011
