NEA Sticks To Its Investing Guns

from the slow-and-steady dept

There have been a ton of articles about how venture capitalists are claiming now is the best time to start a startup. However, with that said, just about every venture capital fund has been cutting back on their investments – both in terms of the number of deals and the amount invested. The one that stands apart from the trend, though, is New Enterprise Associates, who’s fund is apparently so large they simply have to keep investing at the same rate. Of course, they’re still fairly conservative in the deals they do and they don’t charge a management fee based on the fund size like most VC firms. Anyway, has their ever been a venture capitalist who was heard saying that any time was a bad time to start a company?
