Opportunities: The Most Important Venture Capitalist

Abstract:
There is another problem with private VC investments in early-stage technology ventures. From the venture capitalists' perspective, the ideal investment is in a company that will be acquired or will undergo an IPO within 3 years. It is rare for an early-stage technology venture to grow that fast, and force-feeding it is often fatal. For these reasons, private VC investments in early-stage technology ventures are rare and tend to be clustered in "hot" technology sectors. For the past 5 years, nanotechnology has been hot, but this is giving way to the latest "hot" areas: energy and (more broadly) green technology.
