Venture-Catalyst: Scouting for localized skills that come with commitment.

While a Venture-Capitalist is concerned with the efficiency of Capital for new ventures, a Venture-Catalyst concerns himself with the efficiency of a society. He scouts for available talent amongst a set of persons (Society/Community) and arranges for that talent to be put-to-use by inventing a proto-type to create value-addition within that community. This proto-type involves creation of value-addition activity and also provides/generates  the resources for start-up of the venture.  Returns are sought in a long-term time frame and are measured using indices of societal-gain rather than in monetary terms.  While the Venture-Catalyst is a hands-on person, he does not personally benefit from the Venture; hence, he becomes a Venture-Catalyst.
