What a venture wants …

I came across the site for Seattle firm Second Avenue Partners yesterday (after reading site of WA State Senate candidate Eric Liu). Their synopsis of what  business plan ought to answer includes:

Consider the following questions:
Is your company bringing a new technology-based product or service to market?
Is your company at the “seed” or first stages (i.e. raising less than $10 Million)?
Is your company headquartered in the Pacific Northwest United States?
Will your company offer 40%-60% compound annual returns on Second Avenue Partner’s’ money?
Are there multiple exit strategies for your company?

A different lens than the one-page business plan format/formula.

Appropriate reading as counterpoint to the Duration of Unemployment graphs from CalculatedRisk blog. Oh, that and Donald Peck article in the Atlantic on ‘How Jobless Era will transform America.’
