The National Microelectronics Institute (NMI) has published a private equity investment handbook for semiconductor start-ups. Featuring a series of articles from successful UK silicon entrepreneurs and specialist venture capital investors, it aims to provide readers with a real-world insight into the major aspects of the fund-raising process. The handbook is free to download from www.nmi.org
John Moor, Director of Marketing at the NMI commented, “We wanted to produce a ‘how to’ handbook that really would help accelerate the knowledge of would-be entrepreneurs. There’s certainly many other excellent resources already available, but our aim was to produce something that presented the very real experiences of semiconductor entrepreneur and investor alike.”

Covering a broad range of subjects including business models, valuation and mitigating risk, are articles from Cambridge Silicon Radio, Icera and picoChip, while the SETsquared Partnership of Universities also writes on the impact of intellectual property.

From the venture capitalist community come article contributions from Add Partners, Esprit Capital Partners, MTI, Pond Ventures, Quester and Scottish Equity Partners, addressing issues including market sizing, skill sets and smart money.

Further short articles, case studies and ‘hints and tips’ come from Critical Blue, Cre8 Ventures and EDA software companies Cadence and Synopsys.
