USF Professor Mark Cannice talks best moves for tech entrepreneurs  | USF in the News |

"Like all startups, young tech businesses need to find adequate sources of financing to ensure they can get off the ground. But how can you tell which source of financing best positions your new enterprise for success? Recently published research from the University at Buffalo School of Management suggest that tech entrepreneurs might be better off partnering with venture capitalists than angel investors."



"Investors confidence increased in the third quarter of 2016, according to the Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist Confidence Index. The index, which is based on a five point scale, now stands at a 3.88, up from a 3.60 last quarter, indicating that investors are more optimistic and willing to pledge capital to startups. University of San Francisco Professor Mark Cannice attributed the boost in confidence to technological progress and the new opportunities that progress is creating. "Recognizing major technological shifts that are opening up large new markets for determined entrepreneurs, many of the 32 responding venture capitalists in the Q3 survey focused on the resultant high potential investment opportunities in the future entrepreneurial environment," Cannice said."
