With Exits Elusive, Harris & Harris To Take More Stakes In Public Cos.

Venture capitalists and their limited partners have long bemoaned lackluster returns and the lengthening time until exits for portfolio companies. Publicly held venture firm Harris & Harris Group has gotten tired of waiting, and said it plans to invest more in public companies in a bid to make faster returns.

Since 2002, Harris & Harris has focused on backing companies with products based on nanotechnology or microsystems. Its private-company portfolio includes Mersana Therapeutics Inc., which develops cancer therapies based on its biodegradable polymer technology, and Solazyme Inc., which uses algae to produce clean fuels, chemicals, foods and health-science products.
