From Academic Entrepreneur to Small-Business Executive

Spectrum: If you were going to be an angel investor or venture capitalist, what technologies would you be looking to support?

Zoltan Cendes: I'd prefer to go and look at things that are new and unexploited. I think there are areas in nanotechnology that have great promise. Nanotechnology is going to be developing more and more. Many of the tools that we have apply to nanotechnology in some way, so we're looking at it as an area for future growth. So many people have been working on technologies in the wireless area, so it's harder, but if there were something truly unique, that would also be a good investment.
