I have been talking to lots of entrepreneurs about various business models to support innovation, especially in industries from which VCs are pulling out (Security, Networking, Chips, Enterprise Software, etc.). This article looks at a business model that offers an alternative framework to support innovation. Read my latest Forbes column, Free to Innovate, and the corresponding interview with Accidental Entrepreneur Paul Kocher.

I believe, ths gap that is opening up in segments from which VCs are pulling out are excellent opportunities for Indian entrepreneurs to build self-funded companies in.
