Nova Ventures Cafe™

Novatempo is pioneering the Nova Ventures Cafe™ with the main goal of creating a networking forum for expanding value creating business interactions on a global scale.

Nova Ventures Cafe™ is the first place in the www were entrepreneurs from all over the world present their envisioned high growth business ventures to a select global audience of seasoned entrepreneurs, high risk investors, skilled technologists and experienced service providers.

The presentation is given as part of a venture validation  effort designed to gather constructive criticism, identify potential partners and establish global interactions that may result in a more viable business venture.

Economic Growth through Entrepreneurial Activity

We live in one planet supporting one giant global economy formed by hundreds of thousand local economies.   The entire global economic vitality depends on having all those regions densely interconnected to regions as far away as possible.

A strong growth in the rate at which those interactions are being formed corresponds to a well performing economy. Regions that find themselves having fewer interconnections, experience stagnation or even decay. Regions that maintain a net positive rate of creation of new interactions with the rest of the world, both nearby or far away,  prosper.  Growing these connections is the primary function of private businesses. Creating entire new trade interconnections where there was none before is the primary role of high growth entrepreneurial enterprises.  These last ones are the rapidly growing ventures whose development Novatempo® hopes to accelerate through the Nova Ventures Cafe™, a global meeting place for leaders and visionaries trying to create healthy local economies through aggressive local innovation and expanding global trade.

How does Nova Ventures Cafe™ operates?

We organize business presentations on demand for innovative ventures designed to gather global feedback and to identify global resources to help them become high growth business ventures.

Once an entrepreneur considering a venture decides to seek our advise, we organize an invitation only virtual event in which the entrepreneur/intrapreneur presents the product/technology roadmap and business overview to a select global panel.

Invited to the presentation are anywhere between 3 and 7 participants chosen among our global networks of experienced entrepreneurs, business executives, technology experts, and technology investors.  The presentation given is not a fund-raising pitch, it is a genuine effort to gather advise on a global scale from some of the most talented people we can engage anywhere in the world. There is no promise to the presenter of continued interactions with the invited participants after the presentation.  However, the participants may wish to share contact information or follow up with the presenter if a participant develops interest on the venture presented.

Furthermore, Novatempo may offer advisory services to presenters and participants if deemed appropriate or value creating.

What are the beneficial outcomes for the presenting ventures?

The entrepreneur presenting his/her business obtains, at a nominal cost, the possibility of accessing global business and technology leaders, having relevant domain of expertise, to comment on the merits of the venture.   The entrepreneur also receives:

  • Constructive Feedback
  • Expert Suggestions
  • Referrals and Networking
  • Continued Interactions
  • Global Exposure

The value received by the entrepreneur is enormous. This kind of timely global feedback, gathered from among highly qualified experts, has become feasible only in recent years as a result of advances in communication and social networking technologies.

Early global exposure of a promising local venture, not matter how isolated might be from the world in its current location; can trigger talent attraction, capital flows, business relocations and strategic partnering on a global scale.

What type of early stages business ventures  are most adequate for consideration at Nova Ventures Cafe?

The potential for a high rate of profitable growth (~>100% yr over 3 yr) is the central criterion for inclusion.  Every great business growth fast, delivers profits and requires significant capital to sustain its performance.  Thus, a high growth expectation supported by sound analytical arguments, must be clearly  stated in the executive summary and explicitly communicated in all initial efforts aimed at being selected to present at a Nova Ventures Cafe™ global session.

Generally speaking, the ventures that generate the most interest are in the following technology-business spaces:

  • Information Technology
  • Software in Support of Cloud Computing/Web Services
  • Enterprise Software Solutions
  • Software for Wireless Applications
  • Wireless Infrastructure Technologies
  • Medical Devices and Clinical Solutions
  • Scientific and Manufacturing Equipment
  • Clean Energy (Solar, Wind, Clean Coal, Nuclear)
  • Biotechnology Therapies and Pharmaceutical Drugs Development
  • Solutions for More Efficient Transportation Processes
  • Efficient Miniaturization Technologies

  • Highly Leveraged Real State Development Projects
  • Highly Leveraged Tourism Infrastructure Projects
  • Highly Leveraged Regional Franchising Ventures
  • Highly Leveraged Acquisitions of Government Run Enterprises
  • Highly Leveraged Private Investments into Publicly Listed Business

These businesses entail, in some instances, the possibility for delivering high returns on investment supported by intrinsic high growth, efficient leverage or temporary valuation distortions.  Naturally, other businesses offering the potential for high exit multipliers are also of interest of Nova Ventures Cafe™
