Rice Alliance success is based on its positioning: Part I

The success of the Houston based Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship is based on its positioning as an avant-garde community, says Angela Moretti.

In Houston, Texas there are many organizations seeking to increase capital for local research and technology ventures.  Among them the Rice Alliance makes a difference.

Funds flowing into Rice University’s technology research, education and outreach initiatives have more than doubled since the alliance’s 1999 formation as a cooperative effort among the schools of engineering, natural sciences and business. See:

The alliance’s membership structure and competitions stand out. They include the annual “battles” of business plans (recently featured in Fortune magazine: http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2010/smallbusiness/1005/gallery.rice_business_plan.fortune/index.html); and quarterly forums with competitions for most promising ventures.

The Rice Alliance is an avant-garde community that actively promotes new research concepts and the marshalling of resources to pursue business opportunities, regardless of source.  The actively sponsored and organized competitions include extensive feedback and follow-ups that drive toward overall improvement of ideas and better commercialization.

These competitions, which are open to all, not only draw investors and benefit the winners; they also create a strong sense of community where participants feel valued contributing to the advancement of research and business in Houston.

Unicist Standard Language for Financial Engineering

Financial engineering requires dealing with the nature of businesses. The Unicist Standard provides the Unicist Scorecard as a tool to deal with the nature of businesses when making financial decisions.

The Unicist Standard Language provides the logic to deal with the Unicist Standard in Financial Engineering processes.

“Dealing with Human Adaptive Systems necessarily is driven by complexity. Adaptive systems are complex in themselves but dealing with human adaptive systems adds a new complex component which is the ambiguity implicit in human behavior.

The existence of conscious and non-conscious aspects of human behavior produces naturally the existence of an ambiguous environment.

The purpose of adaptive system management is to influence human adaptive systems using the object driven technologies included in the Unicist Standard.

The development of the Unicist Standard Language was necessary to provide a context in order to understand, communicate and influence the management of human adaptive systems.”
