Interest: New Enterprise Associates is preparing to raise the largest venture capital fund in history, Fortune has learned. The 37 year-old firm has told investors to expect formal documents by year-end for its fifteenth fund, which is expected to target approximately $2.8 billion. That’s nearly a 10% increase from the $2.6 billion NEA raised for Fund 14 in the summer of 2012, which itself was the industry’s record-holder (just edging out a $2.56 billion fund raised in 2006 by Oak Investment Partners).

Interest: Entrepreneurs are somewhat of a mascot for the U.S. economy — nothing embodies the American dream more than an entrepreneur. Consequently, we’ve been trained to think there’s a positive correlation between the number of start-ups and the health of the economy. But Daniel Isenberg, professor of entrepreneurship, and Fernando Fabre, president of Endeavor Global, argue otherwise. Real, high impact entrepreneurship comes from “scale-ups” instead. Scale-ups are growing businesses that...

Interest: The University of California recently announced its entry into the venture capital arena with a $250 million commitment to spinning promising technologies out of its top-notch, 10-campus system. Perhaps every major research university in the US — collectively, recipients of over $40 billion in federal research funding yearly, not to mention the inflows of corporate research funds — wishes to emulate Stanford’s success in capitalizing on the market successes of...

Interest: As a small company, you have a number of things going for you because of your size: You're agile. You can react quickly to market changes. You can still innovate on a whim. Big businesses know this all too well, which helps explain what's driving an increase in the number of corporate venture capital arms cropping up in the past few years.

Interest: Chicago is home to some great businesses, but Peter Thiel says a focus on capital instead of ideas could be an obstacle to what he considers true greatness. And he’s still waiting for the city’s breakout company. “Austin had Dell, Seattle had Microsoft and Amazon,” said Thiel, who was part of PayPal’s founding team and is a co-founder of San Francisco-based Founders Fund. “There is something about getting some sort of large breakout success that I feel Chicago hasn’t quite had yet.”

Interest: In the third quarter, Florida attracted only about one-third of 1 percent of U.S. venture capital dollars nationwide. The new report by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and the National Venture Capital Association shows a total of about $36.7 million was invested in six deals across the state, according to the Miami Herald. That figure is down sharply from the $113.9 million invested in 13 deals the previous quarter. The latest numbers mark the lowest total since the first quarter of 2013.

Transatomic Power is developing a next-generation reactor that runs on nuclear waste. They all have one thing in common: money from Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

Interest: One of the things you hear a lot when you talk to entrepreneurs and venture capitalists is that they want to change the world. Some of them even mean it. One of those people is Bryan Johnson, who has committed $100 million—a substantial portion of his personal fortune—to a new venture-capital fund aimed at what Mr. Johnson himself calls “crazy” projects.
