Is the VC Party Over?
from the baby,-bathwater-syndrome dept
BusinessWeek is telling us that the super happy venture capital days may now be over since the stock market is tanking. Of course, in typical overhype fashion, now everyone’s saying that “the window is closing” and everyone’s in trouble. What they forget is that there are still good companies out there that will make strong investments. If anything, this “correction” just means that people will have to look more carefully at their investments (which is what they should have been doing in the first place) to see if they really make sense, are real businesses, and can make money. Of course, that’s not to say that in a few weeks the stock market won’t rebound, and everyone will go back to throwing away money based on hype.
