An investor would want to have a strong feeling that he or she is looking at a truly 'killer' app.
California (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
A collection of interviews with famed venture capitalist Mouli Cohen have published on the popular document sharing website Scribd, and a number of future interviews are slated to go up in the coming weeks. He has given his expertise on such topics as solar power, clean tech, healthcare reform, augmented reality, and the future of powering American industry.
Recently, Mouli Cohen's interview on solar energy was a featured pick by Scribd's editorial staff. In it Cohen, who heads the high tech private investment firm Voltage Capital, discusses his take on bringing solar energy to more impoverished nations, " I think the private sector needs to take on a strategy of micro-financing in these countries so that the technology can not only be used to make cleaner energy, but also to improve the livelihoods of impoverished communities."
He also says, despite its promise as an alternative source of energy, solar isn't necessarily the key to solving the global climate crisis. "There will be no one solution, and that's why we must all keep an open mind as to what is the best way to ensure sustainable living."
In his September interview on augmented reality, Mouli Cohen professed the great investment potential in upcoming technologies that will digitally link us to our environments. Still, he urges caution when investing in this sphere. "An investor would be taking a huge risk that a truly commercial market will not develop for several years," he says of AR applications. "An investor would want to have a strong feeling that he or she is looking at a truly 'killer' app."
Most recently, Mr. Cohen discussed today's global business landscape. He says, "I think the move towards international cooperation in business is an exciting development. Even though the recession has cut down revenues and many companies ability to expand, we have seen a trend toward handling that burden by sharing it with partners in different markets."
Additional interviews will be delivered over the coming months.
