After selling their high-tech company, three entrepreneurs decided to form an angel
investor group. The process of generating and researching new business ideas narrows
their search to two possibilities: a technology for Internet data centres and a new
supercomputer. Both projects were discussed with venture capitalists that were willing to
fund the project, only if the three partners managed the company. The partners must
decide whether to leave their angel investment group to become full-time entrepreneurs
and which of the two concepts they should pursue.
