Interest: As the number of venture capital firms is diminishing and the amount of money being raised by venture firms is shrinking, we’re seeing many corporate investors coming into the venture market and making strategic investments. Many of the small companies we’re working with are increasingly taking money from large corporations rather than from the venture capital industry and many of our large clients are forming venture funds and investing in start-ups.

Interest: Venture capitalists are betting most of their money in California, encouraging the most promising Heartland start-ups to move to the coasts and letting others go unfunded because of their location. It’s not just hard for Middle America entrepreneurs, it’s also a missed opportunity for California investors.
