November 2012 SIGMOD Blog features Chen Li on "Entrepreneurship in Data Management Research."
Visit the SIGMOD Blog (wp.sigmod.org) to read Prof. Chen Li's blog on "Entrepreneurship in Data Management Research." As data is becoming increasingly more important in our society, there are many successful companies doing data-related businesses. This field grows so fast that many new startups are launched with the goal to become the “next Google.” This trend also provides a lot of entrepreneurship opportunities for our community working on data management research. This blog describes my experiences of doing a startup (called SRCH2, http://www.srch2.com/) that commercializes university research. It also shares my own perspective on entrepreneurship in data management research. This blog is based on the talk that I gave at the DBRank workshop at VLDB 2012 and the talk slides are available on my homepage.
