(1) The Mission of CIV Update: Impact Policy Makers
The essence of venture is developing ideas into innovation, turning them into businesses and creating up new companies. A successful venture creates value to the users of the new product or service; value to the entrepreneurs; and value to the investors – private, institutional and governmental alike.We see venture as a critical aspect of the modern economy, and our mission is to facilitate the global fast-paced, high-value venture ecosystem and to compress the value chain all the way from innovation through to institutional investors.
(2) Request for Information Tender: Bring our History of Venture Database to Life and Receive $25,000
The Coller Institute of Venture is now accepting responses to a Request for Information (RFI) on possible visualization applications for its History of Venture database.
Should a proposal be selected for implementation, its author can expect to be engaged in a contract of up to $25,000 for development and deployment, plus up to $5,000 per annum for subsequent maintenance.

(3) New Guest Post: Engaging Stakeholders for Strategy Making: Participation or Inclusion?
by Daniel Mack, PhD candidate and Prof. Gabriel Szulanski (INSEAD, Singapore).
The post relates to multi-party, multi-stakeholder decision situations that generally could be found in VC decision making contexts or in startups where entrepreneurs have to coordinate decisions across different stakeholders (e.g. employees, investors etc.).
Daniel Mack received the CIV Best PhD Proposal Award in December 2015.
