2017.11

I've been looking for some data on number of active entrepreneurs at any given time, worldwide. I'm surprise how difficult to find this, particularly considering that there are institutions looking a this such as Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (by the way, this kind of data, number of entrepreneurs, should be displayed right on the frontpage of the institution). This is one of the sources I found:

The most recent report by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor is here:

Estonia is considered an example of a country with successful digital government policies. Among other initiatives started in the 1990s, the country started educating people to use computers and program them. It also implemented a mandatory digital citizen ID to offer digital government services, limiting required in person visits to government offices only for marriage, divorce and house purchases. Should do some more research to learn about this whole policy experience (particularly thinking of privacy concerns with regards to the mandatory ID).

This blog post could be a good start:

Reading about Quid Inc's (YouNoodle back then) 2009 prediction on 50 startups. Info on this 2009 challenge is kind of lost in the web, so I'm trying to learn more before posting about it.

Quid has been asked about this again, and here is the list of 50 startups that will make history:

A computer was asked to predict which start-ups would be successful. The results were astonishing.

Reviewing some outputs from my NSF-funded innovation prizes research, part of my doctoral dissertation work at Georgia Tech. This is one of them - a poster that summarizes some findings of my research on the Google Lunar X Prize, the Ansari X Prize, and the Northrop Lunar Lander Challenge. You can find the full resolution version of the poster here: http://prizeresearch.org/publications/
You'll find some other interesting resources on www.prizeresearch.org, check it out if you are interested in prizes.

As I read some older posts, I realize that many links don't work anymore. Sorry, not my fault really. If you want to report a broken link, I'll be happy to look into it and find the updated link.

Checking the Challenge.gov resources web page:
https://www.challenge.gov/toolkit/resources/
I don't see any reference to academic work, that's interesting... It'd be nice to see empirical evidence among all those resources.

A few years old, but still current. Most interesting: mega trends in intellectual property; also, a few bits on startup opportunities in the IP space: https://www.kauffmanfellows.org/journal_posts/ip-and-vc-a-framework-for-funding-disruption...

Posting from a new server. Glad to be back!
