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.

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...

A short article about the process of creating a new company has been recently published by Nature: Start up and succeed. For those that do not have too much knowledge about the process, it is interesting. It is oriented toward scientists who want to create a company, so it includes a few paragraphs on university spinoffs.

I asked about governance in the biotech industry in Atlanta. The answer: "Nobody knows who govern the biotech ecosystem... In fact [thinking a bit more], big pharma and universities do that".

Atlanta's biotech startup ecosystem (2)
This is a new version of the so called "startup ecosystem" in the biotech industry in Atlanta. In fact, this is a simplification, because I am only listing organizations and not relationships nor programs nor activities developed by them.
Since I could not find any source of information where this ecosystem is defined, I decided to build its structure by myself. This is helpful for my research at Georgia Tech.
Here is an updated version of the organizations participating in the ecosystem (still unfinished). I am not sure to use a functional classification like this one, but I suppose it is a good start:

- Entrepreneurs / faculty / scientists.

- Universities:
Georgia Institute of Technology
Emory University
Georgia State University
The University of Georgia
Medical College of Georgia

- Funding organizations (business angels, venture capital firms, grants):
SBIR Georgia
ATDC Seed Capital Fund
Georgia Research Alliance Innovation Fund

- Incubators:
Advanced Technology Development Center
Emtech Bio (2000)
The Georgia BioBusiness Center (2000)
Life Sciences Business Development Center and Innovation Center

- Industry organizations:
Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce
Metro Atlanta Bioscience Council (part of the Chamber of Commerce)

- "One-stop" centers:
Georgia Tech VentureLab

- "Catalyst" organizations:
Georgia Centers of Innovation
Georgia Research Alliance (1990)
Georgia Biomedical Partnership (1989)
Center for Biotechnology and Drug Design (1994)

All these organizations claim participation in the Atlanta's biotech startup ecosystem, even though I could not establish clearly yet the different patterns of participation of each one.
Feel free to contact me for corrections or suggestions. I hope I will provide a more complete description in a few days. Thanks.

Atlanta's biotech startup ecosystem
I was browsing the web searching for more information about the so called "startup ecosystem" in the biotech industry, particularly in Atlanta. The idea to add here all the components of this ecosystem, it will be useful for future reference in my work (my del.icio.us is getting very disorganized).
Here is the list (unfinished):

- Entrepreneurs / scientists (not necessarily the same individual has both roles).

- Universities:
Georgia Institute of Technology
Emory University
Georgia State University
The University of Georgia

- Funding organizations: business angels, venture capital firms, grants.
For example:
SBIR Georgia
ATDC Seed Capital Fund
Georgia Research Alliance Innovation Fund

- Incubators:
Advanced Technology Development Center
Emtech Bio

- "One-stop" centers:
Georgia Tech VentureLab

- "Catalyst" organizations:
Georgia Centers of Innovation
Georgia Research Alliance

Is not easy to categorize some organizations, because they develop several functions at the same time and with a different emphasis.
Feel free to contact me for corrections or suggestions. I hope I will provide a more complete list in a few days. Thanks.
