Dot-com bombs get an archive of their own.

|

This MSNBC article says Kirsch, a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland, has been frantically collecting business plans of the dot-com era for more than two years. His purpose is to archive these documents that lie idle and scattered. They were risking in losing an important piece of American business and cultural history.

Kirsch and a rotating staff of loyal students have created a digital database -- available at www.businessplanarchive.org (use BugMeNot to log in if you don't want to register) -- that lists more than 2,300 companies so far, mostly from 1997 to 2002. It is a painstaking process, and the records are far from comprehensive, Kirsch acknowledges, but he hopes the archives may someday prove useful in capturing the craziness of the Internet boom.

The New Road to Riches

| |

A story, by Business 2.0, says the phenomenon has gone largely unnoticed because most of the deals are too small to make news. But the trend is accelerating. By the end of September, there will have been more than 5,300 tech acquisitions in 2004, based on research from Mergerstat. The average reported selling price was $12 million; in two-thirds of the transactions, the prices were so small that buyers didn't disclose them. At this point in 2003, also a big year for small deals, there had been 4,500 tech acquisitions, averaging $12.5 million.
