8 predictions for 2014 from a VC's perspective - Fortune Tech

8 predictions for 2014 from a VC's perspective - Fortune Tech | Venture | Scoop.it
Global Internet & venture capital investor Sergio Monsalve of Norwest Venture Partners offers his take on the year ahead.

As we end a successful 2013 for the tech/Internet venture world, I wanted to share some thoughts on what may be coming in 2014 as it relates to major global Internet & mobile trends, the venture capital funding environment, major emerging subsectors of growth, and the public markets.

Top 8 predictions for 2014:

1. Mobile will continue to disrupt Internet incumbents: Mobile Internet and e-commerce adoption will accelerate and surprise even the most bullish predictors. For example, Facebook (FB) CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently mentioned that 48% of its Daily Active Users log in via mobile. I believe this number could reach 70%-75% by the end of 2014. Also, I predict that much of this usage and growth will come from developing countries in Asia and Latin America.

Suddenly I was a VC. An accidental one. And it’s been very interesting since that point back in 1996.
