Capital and Venture Capital
These companies are either providing or are seeking capital, venture capital, and advisory services for technology
based companies. Even during down times there are still people with money looking to fund "the next big thing."
It will probably never again be like the heydays of the late 1990s tech boom, where money appeared from nowhere
literally in the form of stock market values, but some of the biggest success stories came out of the Depression
Era (IBM, for example).

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
in the form of WYSIWYG
