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?
