Submission deadline: 15 March 2017

The Coller Institute of Venture (CIV) at Tel Aviv University is soliciting preliminary inputs for the definition of our research strand on Financing Venture.

The Coller Institute of Venture was founded in 2013 as Tel Aviv University’s thematic and overarching unit for advancing the global venture ecosystem.  CIV’s research is organized into strands, each addressing a particular aspect of the venture ecosystem. Current research strands include:

We are at present beginning work on the next strand, Financing Venture. The Financing Venture strand will examine, through a wide range of activities, the manifold schemes by which new ventures can be funded. Up to 10 grants of US $3,000 each will be distributed to contributors of research paper proposals in this domain, upon successful publication of the paper in Issue 6 of Coller Venture Review, our main publication.

Our scope is intentionally wide: we include both traditional and non-conventional models, either existing ones that have been tried in the field, or designs for future and potential models that are being proposed.

We are interested in your input for where we should take this strand:

  • Which research directions are interesting? What is new and trending in this space?
  • What funding models should we include?
  • Who are the key experts we should approach?
  • Do you have a paper to propose to our issue?
  • Do you wish to stay informed and interact with us as things come together?

We welcome your thoughts! Please email these to Nathan Zeldes, nathan.zeldes@collerinstituteofventure.org.
