I’m on a mission to increase data-driven investment decisions. We can do that by building a bridge between academic research and the entrepreneurial and investment community. Great academic work is out there on very relevant topics, such as how team composition can predict performance, why Scale Ups are an important asset class, and how co-investing can increase portfolio performance. But since most of this research is published in scientific journals that are very difficult to read for non-academics, people that deal with these those topics on a day to day basis – such as entrepreneurs, investors and start-up mentors – miss out on all this knowledge. This is unfortunate, as informed people make better decisions.
This blog is a startingpoint for making more impact with scientific research in the venture community and empower better investment decisions.
