Interest: This is the third in a set of travel blogs taking a figurative trip in the borderlands between academic research and commercial products and services. In my previous post, we explored some of the cultural and language differences between the two sides of the border. The differences – plus a couple of unfortunate realities – actually make it less a border than a no-man’s land or just a plain gap between the two sides. This gap is often referred to as the “Valley of Death.”

Interest: Rewards that great -- for such a range of firms -- are scant in venture capital. Venture returns have lagged the public markets for the past decade, leading to a contraction in the number of funds. Following last year’s blockbuster paydays from the IPOs of Facebook Inc. and Workday Inc., the wealth was spread in 2013 as Twitter Inc., Zulily Inc., Nimble Storage Inc. and other companies went public at valuations topping $1 billion.

Interest: If you really want to impress a startup founder as a potential employee, or you want to be a smart investor, you need to know the right questions to ask. These are the questions that get past the hype of a founder “vision to change the world,” and into the realm of real business strengths, weaknesses, and current health.
