New Energy Congress -- Capital Resources Committee
The purpose of the Capital Resources committee is to help inventors avoid the quicksand and pitfalls from funding arrangements not in their best interest to help identify valuable financial leads and to see that the NEC receives a fair piece of the action when successful matches are facilitated.
Congress:Member:Ken Rasmussen, committee chair
screening money groups
networking money and technology
advising money groups about technologies
advising technology groups about money
see that NEC gets a fair piece of the action when they are involved in matching (e.g. 3% finders fee for landing investments)
understand the basic legal requirements involved in these financial matters
We need to be able to guide people through the process, to let them know what is a good or bad deal at whatever stage of the game they are at. e.g. when there isn'ta prototype yet, the financial investment is going to ask for a much larger piece of the pie, than later on.
One of the primary purposes of the NEC Capital Resources committee is to screen money, like the NEC body in general screens technologies. This committee should consider maintaning a public and a private "Top 100 Capital Resources" listing that energy groups can refer to.
There is nearly as much a gamut in money as there is in energy technology claims
grossly overstated but real
promising, but not yet well-developed
ideal match for many of our connections
understated but real
It is the last three that we are going after to feature when matching up money with technologies.
What we want to do is to generate a list of money resources we can refer to technologies that need capital for (again, another gamut) . . .
building first prototype
R&D on a working technology
building company infrastructure
preparing production prototype
going into production
launching into the marketplace
expanding in the marketplace
Each of these takes a different kind of finance and entails a decreasing risk (as one proceeds down the list). This list will contain both resources that can be publicly known, as well as some that we need to keep quiet / in-house.
