Desalinization, Laser rocketry, Android Sats, new Venture Capital ventures with Eli Zelkha

Dr. Future Jan 25th, 2011

Should we go forward with the desal plant for our Monterey Bay? There are considerations, pro and con. Meanwhile radical new approaches to rocketry are evolving. “Beam my rocket, Scotty!” And space satellites are getting smaller, better, cheaper, now run by smart phone tech! Our guest for this show is professor Eli Zelkha, who teaches courses in venture capital and entrepreneurialism at Stanford and the Monterey Institute.  He gives us an update on the radical shifts in funding companies these days, and what kinds of new startups are coming down the pike…such as global  ‘crowd sourcing’ services, and the art of failure.. Say what?  Find out more on Dr. Future!

Great show. I thought the VC segment was very illuminating. The new models for startup incubators are very interesting. I have experimented with these sort of models for startups. Could you post some of incubators that Eli Zelkha talked about. Continue to good work.
