    What a difference a year makes. Through 2009, venture investing had been relatively stable with 7 straight years between $22-30 Billion invested annually in the US. That streak ended abruptly in 2009, with VC investing down roughly 50%. Our panel will examine a number of issues facing the venture industry in 2010, including: 

    • Is the venture model broken? With a dead IPO market and few big M&A deals, can the venture industry return sufficient capital to warrant even $15B of investment annually by LP's?

    • What will be different in 2010? Will venture investing go up, down, or sideways?

    • Will the IPO market finally rebound in 2010?

    • Clean Tech is still the new, new thing, but in a world of capital efficiency, how will it be affected?

    • Where are valuations headed?
