A recent article on Cayuga Venture Fund in DowJones Venture Wire made its way into the WSJ Venture Capital Dispatch (sister publication). It has been getting a decent amount of attention. Here is the link.
Besides the content, which I like (!!), I want to do something out of the ordinary and give a bit of praise to the WSJ reporter Chris Zinsli. Over the past 4 years, Chris has actually followed CVF with some interest and we have developed a great working relationship. Reporters can be tricky to deal with sometimes – my suggestion is to approach them with a relationship building state of mind. And think about it as a 2 way street as well.
90 plus degrees in Ithaca today…..enjoy the heat!
Nice article, Zach! Ithaca has the potential to be the next Boulder. What it does lack, as you quoted, is capital and incubators.
