New VC Firms Strategy : GPs share Carry with Founders of invested companies

New VC Firms Strategy : GPs share Carry with Founders of invested companies | Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital | Scoop.it
Silicon Valley has long prided itself for creating the Pied Pipers of the world, but venture capitalists themselves have been reluctant to disrupt their own industry and the traditional 2/20 model. But just recently, Kent Goldman, a former First Round Capital partner, is trying something radical: he’s spreading the wealth with his founders. It’s simple enough. All founders in his portfolio get a cut of the carry, which is unheard of in VC. I was a bit reticent when I read about his new approach

Microsoft is on the hunt for home automation startups - Neowin

Microsoft is on the hunt for home automation startups - Neowin | Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital | Scoop.it
Microsoft is opening up a new accelerator program in which it is looking to work with home automation startups at its campus in Redmond, Washington and is teaming up with American Family Insurance.

Home automation is likely the next big wave for consumer innovation. While the idea is nothing new, the barrier to entry for startups is quite low and prices are quickly entering the range where many consumers can afford such luxuries.

An easy example of the home automation wave is Nest, a simple thermostat that uses algorithms to help keep your heating and cooling costs down, but packaged as a stylish piece of hardware. Admittedly, what they were doing was not new, but their execution was unique and their marketing was more or less perfect.

Nest was soon bought by Google, fueling the home-automation race among the tech giants with Apple getting into the game too, and now Microsoft is looking to move in on the turf. 

Microsoft’s approach, however, is a bit different from that of Apple or Google, as the company is opening up an accelerator program. In partnership with American Family Insurance, Microsoft will be opening up an immersive program from August to December and American Family Insurance is offering an optional $25,000+ for an equity stake in any company accepted into the program.
