The State of VC Activity in the Region
I spent the better part of January and into early February working on an unusually stimulating project, helping write and edit a first-ever comprehensive report on the state of venture capital activity in Northeast Ohio. Commissioned by Jumpstart, Bioenterprise and NorTech and partly modeled on a report issued by the St. Louis Capital Alliance, it's just been released. I'll post the full report when it's online (it's now up, here). Today's Plain Dealer covers it here, the Akron Beacon Journal here and Crain's Cleveland Business here. Nortech's always-astute Chris Varley discusses it here, on his fine Tech Futures blog. Ironically, a new client website (for which I wrote the copy, working with a great design team) just launched a few days ago. As it happens, it's for a small, locally based venture capital group.
