Sometimes Brilliant: The Impossible Adventure o...

When a powerful mystic steps on the hand of a radical young hippie doctor from Detroit, it changes lives and the world. Sometimes Brilliant is the adventures of a philosopher, mystic, hippie, doctor, groundbreaking tech innovator, and key player in the eradication of one of the worst pandemics in human history. His story, of what happens when love, compassion and determination meet the right circumstances to effect positive change, is the kind that keeps hope and the sense of possibility alive. After sitting at the feet of Martin Luther King at the University of Michigan in 1963, Larry Brilliant was swept up into the civil rights movement, marching and protesting across America and Europe. As a radical young doctor he followed the hippie trail from London over the Khyber Pass with his wife Girija, Wavy Gravy and the Hog Farm commune to India. There, he found himself in a Himalayan ashram wondering whether he had stumbled into a cult. Instead, one of India’s greatest spiritual teachers, Neem Karoli Baba, opened Larry’s heart and told him his destiny was to work for the World Health Organization to help eradicate killer smallpox. He would never have believed he would become a key player in eliminating a 10,000-year-old disease that killed more than half a billion people in the 20th century alone. Brilliant’s unlikely trajectory, chronicled in Sometimes Brilliant, has brought him into close proximity with political leaders, spiritual masters, cultural heroes, and titans of technology around the world—from the Grateful Dead to Mikhail Gorbachev, from Ram Dass, the Dalai Lama, Lama Govinda, and Karmapa to Steve Jobs and the founders of Google, Salesforce, Facebook, Microsoft and eBay and Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama. Anchored by the engrossing account of the heroic efforts of the extraordinary people involved in smallpox eradication in India, this is a riveting and fascinating epidemiological adventure, an honest reckoning 1.

Venture capital has a very long story. The financing of Christopher Colombus's voyage of exploration by the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabelle may be seen as one of the most profitable venture capital investments, for the Spanish at least. Venture capital (VC) and Private equity (PE) funds has emerged as the dominant source of finance for entrepreneurial and early stage businesses. Academic literature reveals that venture capital funded companies show superior performance to non venture capital funded companies. Many of the successful businesses that we know today such as Cisco, eBay, Apple, Microsoft and Google received venture capital funding at one point or the other. Venture capital backed firms contribute to the economy through the creation of jobs, an exceptional growth rate, their high level of investments, and their global experience and expansion. The proportion of companies that receive venture capital funding, however, is very small. Despite that, there has been a growth in the availability of VC over the years in the different branches and economies. Evidence indicates that VC funded companies perform better than comparative companies that are not VC funded.

Die Bereitstellung von Eigenkapital für innovative Unternehmen ist und bleibt ein zentrales Anliegen jeder Volkswirtschaft. Venture Capital ist eine der möglichen Antworten auf diese Herausforderung. So wurden Firmen wie Amazon, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Twitter, Yahoo oder YouTube mit Venture Capital finanziert. Venture Capital ist Innovationskapital!Venture Capital dient aber nicht nur als Beteiligungskapital aus Sicht des zu finanzierenden Unternehmens, sondern stellt eine eigene Anlageklasse dar, welche das Spektrum "traditioneller" Anlagen wie Aktien und Anleihen ergänzt. Primäres Ziel ist bei einem Investment in diese Anlageklasse die Erzielung überdurchschnittlicher Renditen. Daneben spricht vor allem die Notwendigkeit der Diversifizierung eines Portfolios - insbesondere bei institutionellen Investoren - für ein stärkeres Engagement in dieser Anlageklasse. Oft steht einem Investment in Venture Capital jedoch der damit verbundene erhebliche Ressourceneinsatz entgegen.Dachfonds spielen daher eine zunehmend wichtigere Rolle, denn sie bieten einen effizienten, risikoadjustierten und diversifizierten Zugang zur "Asset"-Klasse Venture Capital und tragen so indirekt auch zur volkswirtschaftlich äußerst wichtigen Finanzierung von Innovationen bei.Der Autor untersucht, warum und für wen Innovationsfinanzierungen über Venture Capital-Dachfonds sinnvoll sind. Dabei wird auch ausführlich darauf eingegangen wie Innovationen finanziert werden und welchen Beitrag Venture Capital-Dachfonds leisten. Zudem werden die Möglichkeiten und Investmentkalküle unterschiedlicher Institutionen als Dachfondsinvestoren untersucht. Ferner wird herausgearbeitet, welche Erfolgsfaktoren bei der Auswahl von Venture Capital-(Dach-)Fonds zu berücksichtigen sind.
