While a few companies are still receiving VC funding, you can expect a whole lot more companies seeing bailout money. What tech business should you be in to receive the funding? Infrastructure, infrastructure, infrastructure.
- Modernized power grids, heavy transmission lines. We have to have a way to move around all that new green electricity.
Home power generation: solar panels, roof turbines, and even the return of excess power back to the grid.
- Municipal wireless, rural wireless (near VHF/UHF ranges after the HDTV conversion this July), fiber-to-home. It’s ridiculous that people anywhere are forced to still use dial-up.
- Print-to-digital conversion consulting. Newspapers especially, but expect Kindle 2 authors to need some advice as well.
- Health care IT. Don’t bother with electronic health records - Google’s on it. But the rest, including displaying and modifying those records, is up for grabs.
