University Originated Ventures

Today’s article from Nikkei newspaper stating that university-originated ventures need a CEO who understands both tech and business.

As a CEO of startup utilizing the university IPs, this is too obvious but I’ve seen it being stated by many people for a long period of time over and over again.

Now that a question is no more ‘stating’ and we should all focus on how we can cultivate such entrepreneurs or bring them from outside at practical level.

IMHO, a future startup CEO must have English or Chinese speaking capability in addition to tech and business skill sets.
