I recently wrote about Warren Savage, CEO of IPextreme, and his work as the chairman of the Global Semiconductor Alliance's IP Interest Group. Warren is also spearheading the "Capital Lite Working Group." This group's objective is to redesign the fabless funding profile, by reducing upfront costs to create a more attractive risk:reward ratio. As a means to do this, they've created the Cap-Lite Resource Portal, a website which allows fabless start-ups to IP, tools and services from providers that utilize Capital Lite principles.
For more information about Cap-Lite, please visit: http://www.gsaglobal.org/capital_lite_working_group/docs/20120326_resource_portal.pdf. This seems like a no-brainer to me - looking forward to seeing the results.
