Venture Capitalists Discover Due Diligence

from the what-an-amazing-concept dept

An article from a Wharton conference about venture capital quotes a number of venture capitalists talking about how they actually do some due diligence now; whereas before they were just investing willy-nilly. They talk about how they actually get to ask questions to the company before they invest. Well, it’s about time someone thought to do that. You’ll also be happy to learn that venture capitalists have also finally discovered what every student learns in their very first finance class: diversification is a good thing. It’s not good to invest your entire fund in the same type of companies. Apparently, these venture capitalists all went to the same school of thought as everyone who invested all of their retirement savings in Enron.

christ, wake up, newbie. The VC’s are PRO’s at due dilligence…thats what they do for a $^@#^# living !! they just DIDNT NEED TO during the bubble. this crap is just a cover up so they dont get sued like Enron folks. they knew EXACTLY what they were investing in, fake compnaies that could be converted to stock . this is just a thinly veiled attempt at pretending to be swindled as well.
