Welcome to My Tiny World

Venture capital company Harris & Harris Group (Nasdaq: TINY) specializes in tiny technology. The Fool's Jack Uldrich recently interviewed Charles Harris, CEO of this March 2005 Motley Fool Rule Breakers recommendation, and learned about Harris & Harris' investments in nanotech start-ups, its high-risk, high-reward investment philosophy, the effects of Sarbanes-Oxley, and more.

Jack Uldrich: What is Harris & Harris Group, and how are you different from your peers?

Charles Harris: In most respects, we are a rather conventional venture capital firm. We co-invest with a wide variety of other venture capital firms, as well as industrial companies, in start-up and early-stage companies based on novel technologies. We are, however, different in two respects: Because we are a publicly held company and invest only our own capital, we have permanent capital; and we invest only in companies that are working with what MIT terms "tiny technology," which in our case usually means nanoscale technology.
