The Psychology of Investing

The field of Behavioral Finance views economics through the eyes of a psychologist. Apply its lessons to:

  • Integrate tactical manoeuvres into a powerfully strategic master plan.
  • Transform your investment performance by effectively avoiding the most common mistakes.
  • Consistently apply proven investment principles for profit.
  • Instantly recognise and control emotion-based decisions.
  • Upgrade your quality of life by understanding - and improving X the way you make financial decisions.

Nature Business: Technology sector(Internet)
Funds Required: USD1,500,000

Project Details:
Tele-immersion an advanced form of communication being developed today. It portrays a 3D image of a person miles away and allows interaction. There can even be a meeting between more than two people for a conference or social meeting. The idea is to transmit a human presence of such realism that it can fool even a human beings perception. A person is immersed in a 3D rendered world that is transmitted from a remote site. To acquire this transmission, network techniques are being developed to cope with bandwidth issues and special recording equipment is applied.We believe our product will solve various problems that have made air-travel dangerous for the business travelers. New threats such as Terrorism, SARS, fatigue, wastage of time and time zone differences have made air-travel for business less viable.
