A story on the Portland Seed Fund, a city-sponsored entrepreneurial investment fund, would make for a great show -- perhaps timed with the announcement of the seed's fund manager, due to be revealed sometime before August 20th.
It would be interesting to learn the impetus behind this program, if it is unique in the nation, how it will differ from existing private angel and venture capital funds, and what will be the most important criteria in selecting proposals. Of course it should also fuel a good discussion as to (a) whether or not this is an appropriate use of public money, and (b) if this will be the most effective way to support the city's economic strategy.
