Business Incubator Series: Linda Darragh, ARCH New Business Incubator, University of Chicago – Illinois (Part 4)

Posted on Tuesday, Apr 26th 2011

By guest authors Irina Patterson and Vandana Upadhyay

Linda: We are talking to impact investors from around the world to determine their criteria for investing. We are also looking at corporations in these countries to see what kind of products and services they would buy from entrepreneurial companies, to see if there is market as well that we can stimulate.

The multifaceted study has been carried out by a group of students and professors this spring. We have teams working in each country and trying to get information. We send out a questionnaire, it’s a pretty standard research process. It is all done by Skype and e-mail. We are just building a contact list in India. We are looking for mentors or funds and high-growth entrepreneurs in India.

I am also on the board of TiE Midwest. TiE charter members in Chicago, who usually have had a successful exit, are involved in mentoring of our entrepreneurs.
