A century ago, Nikola Tesla postulated free energy from ethereal vibrations. But his massive project in Colorado Springs collapsed with WWII onset, and Tesla died in obscurity. That war ran on the combustion of engine fuels and rocket propellants, as the world still does eighty years later. Karel is on the watch for breakthroughs.
B-to-B Communications Expertise
After ten years with Bell Canada, Karel Jan Kosman founded Raycom Systems Inc, a venture riding the nascent wave of fiber optics. He built relationships with industry leaders Dupont, Corning, and IBM, engaging in multiple-level relationships. The business was ultimately acquired by the connector division of 3M.
Financial Writing Expertise
Karel’s venture capital projects required diligent communications with the sponsors and co-investors, such as the US Agency for International Development and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. He wrote numerous financial analyses and investment memoranda, leading to the financing of successful startups.
