A Big Data Startup Factory: Frost Data Capital’s Novel Recipe


Frost Data Capital is pursuing a model for building and selling companies focused on big data and analytics that breaks many of the assumptions of traditional VC funds and incubators. Frost Data Capital’s founders are betting their model will lead to predictable success that will attract a new class of older, more stable entrepreneurial leadership who will build companies that are precisely targeted to enterprise needs. The hoped for result is a more predictable series of significant but modest exits.

In essence the model amounts to this: By focusing on big data and analytics, assuming responsibility for coming up with the ideas, working with a network of large enterprises, employing seasoned, older executives as leaders, giving those leaders a stake in each others’ success, and providing lots of hands-on help, Frost Data Capitalclaims it will be able to make a much larger return for everyone involved.
