VC investments in U.S. startups fell 12% in 2016 but remain at historic levels

VC investments in U.S. startups fell 12% in 2016 but remain at historic levels | Future Content Library | Scoop.it
Original Source: http://bit.ly/2jaAGJY CHRIS O'BRIEN@OBRIEN JANUARY 11, 2017 3:15 AM Image Credit: Shutterstock In terms of venture capital, 2016 was a great year to determine whether you’re a glass-half-empty or a glass-half-full kind of person. According to the latest PitchBook report from the National Venture Capital Association, released today, venture capital firms invested $69.11 billion in…

Without getting too much into the weeds, this blog re-posting by venture capitalist Daniel Laury of the Explorer Fund (www.theexplorergroup.com), quickly sums up VC investment from 2016:

 

  • $68b invested in start-ups in 2016, a 12% drop from 2016 - yet still the second largest investment year in the past decade.

 

  • Venture firms raised $42b in new funds last year, the MOST in the past decade.

 

  • VCs invested in 8,000 companies, down 22% from 2016 with much of the decline coming from a drop in first round funding. A trend continues towards later stage investing and lower risk.

 

Expectations for a strong stock market and corresponding IPO window in 2017 – combined with the large number of new funds raised in 2016 – have many in the community optimistic moving forward.  Of course, political winds are in flux, and the impact of policy changes from the new administration is yet to be seen.  Overall, lower corporate taxes, less regulation on the formation of companies and compliance cost, and a robust equities market hold the promise of a good 2017!

Are WE desirable?  An age old question; and if we are not, then how do we become so?  All advertising seeks to drive an emotional response around this issue.  This provocative posting by Tony Hughes from a few months ago begs an answer:  “How do I get potential buyers of my product or service to want to come to me on their own?”  As Bruce Lee often spoke about – there is an art of fighting without fighting, or, in this case, an art to selling without selling.  As I re-read this posting, I couldn’t help but see the clear connection to the job search dilemma. For those candidates looking to truly stand out above the pack, a great resume and LinkedIn profile simply won’t cut it. You have to find a way for the prospective employer to desire you proactively.  It’s the difference between “telling someone how outstanding you are” and having them “infer how outstanding you are.”  Hopefully this LI re-post will give you a few ideas and inspiration to take some risks, and perhaps a strategy to turn up the heat a bit.  You know you have been successful when the girl asks you for YOUR number instead of the other way around!

If you have set up a blog for your business, either on your website or as a stand-alone endeavour, you need to feed the beast with regular blogs. This can be easier said than done, especially after the initial enthusiasm has waned, and ideas for posts are harder and harder to find. Advice from successful bloggers can be most useful if you have hit such hurdles, and this article provides great pointers on how to maintain a regular schedule of blog posts.

Brett.Ashley.Crawford's curator insight, September 9, 2016 9:08 AM
All true.  Writing is hard but writing is essential for content generation.  Writing can take many forms (video, audio, etc.) but it is a mental pursuit to find the structure and meaning you intend to convey.
