Corporate development groups and venture capital groups need to look extending their technology development pipeline into earlier stage technologies. This process will allow these companies to spread their investments to a larger group of new innovators / technologies as well as develop relationships with innovators whose first idea may not work, but will continue to develop new ideas.
Talent is talent.
Newer technologies have research and grant opportunities. These programs – SBIR, STTR, corporate licensing, sponsored research – will allow undiluted investment into the development of new technologies. By working with these innovators, corporations can get an early role in the development of new ideas.
