Potential Partner in the Valley?

In the afternoon Phil Wickham arranged for me a meeting with one of the Kauffman fellows, Victor Hwang, one of the fellows who actually started their own firms - in Victor's case T2 Venture Capital... They focus on investments in early stage companies that spin out of academia and government - interesting model counting with a lot of IP and talent, and still hoping for enough entrepreneurship in such spin-offs... I don't believe such model would work in this pure form in the Czech Republic, but I am pretty sure there is huge potential with such focus...

Victor was actually the first VC I've met here in the Valley that openly started discussion about potential cooperation with Central European-based firm like Credo Ventures...

Also, Victor is not only a Kauffman fellow, but he was also awarded a Marshall Memorial Fellowship by the German Marshall Fund, which is a program for emerging transatlantic leaders... I should check it - although I have doubts it could be as great as the EF, it might still be worth a try...

I should be receiving more information from him soon (it was a quick meeting), so I will make sure to make a posting here...
