CIVs History of Venture Timeline at CIV2015HK 科勒风投研究院风投历史数据库大事年表将在研究院2015年会发放


The Coller Institute of Venture History of Venture (CIVHOV) database is at the core of the institute’s History research strand (other strands being Deep Innovation, University
Venture, and Policy), which is led by Prof. Eli Talmor. Arguably, it is the first effort in venture research that aims to build and maintain a database of key related events. The study of history in itself is valuable in any domain, if only because of the adage, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Certainly in an evolving field like venture, history can provide ideas, lessons, and caveats.

Prof. Eli Talmors article Key Insights from a Century of Venture, published in Coller Venture Review – History Issue, includes a graphic illustration of the database in the form of a timeline.

All attendees of our upcoming international conference CIV2015HK: The Future of Venture taking place in Hong Kong on 06-Nov-2015 will receive copies of the The History of Venture Timeline.

For an insightful overview of the History research strand, we invite you to check out Prof. Eli Talmor’s presentation “Lessons from 100 Years of Venture” which is an integral part of the CIV2015HK program.
