Seasons

Seasons
The current stage of a proposed business idea or concept. Seasons is a slang term that is generally used among venture capitalists.

The seasons are spring (infancy), summer (adolescence), fall (maturing) and winter (mature).

Like many investors, venture capitalists are always trying to discover the "next big thing". The real trick is being able to discover the next big thing before it is even on anyone else's radar.

If a concept or idea is so new and fresh that no one (including other venture capitalists) really knows about it or understands it, it is likely in the spring phase. As it matures, it progresses through the other seasons.

For example, in the late twentieth century, there was lots of buzz about new technologies like HDTV and RFID; however, once everyone is talking about an industry or concept, it has probably already passed from the spring season in to the summer season.
