CIV is now – until August 8th – accepting proposals for commissioned papers for the next issue of Coller Venture Review, focused on Deep Innovation.
To find out how you (or a relevant colleague) can contribute, contact Nathan Zeldes.
Deep Innovation is defined as inventions that stem from basic research or a scientific breakthrough. Unlike what we see in the ubiquitous Internet/Cyber/IT startups, deep innovation endeavors usually entail substantial resources and time to materialize (typically $10–100M and 5–20 years).
Notable examples can be found in the domains of:
- Water Venture (see our workshop on this subject)
- Nanotechnology (see lectures here)
- Brain-tech (and here)
- Name your own domain…

Authors who contribute to Coller Venture Review, our flagship publication, have the opportunity to expose their thoughts to thousands of stakeholders in the Venture ecosystem.
Past issues of Coller Venture Review focused on Policy, and History of Venture. Sample articles from previous issues include: The Public Venture Policy Menu, Apple’s DNA, and Key Insights From a Century of Venture.
Deep Innovation papers could address:
- Challenges and solutions related to commercializing Deep Innovation;
- Methodologies that can help such basic research cross over into successful businesses;
- Case studies of actual implementations.
If interested, please contact our Associate Editor Nathan Zeldes, by August 8th, 2015.
