Venture Capital Firms Merging
from the matri-money dept
It seems it’s not only struggling tech companies that are looking to merge to stay in business. Now, many smaller venture capital firms are looking to merge in order to survive. The big name firms are fine, and have no interest in merging. The smaller firms, however, see it as a strategic option. Of course, it’s not really clear what the benefit is (except maybe having access to more capital). If you merge two firms, you just get one bigger firm. If the two smaller firms couldn’t make good investments originally, it’s not likely that a bigger one is going to have any better luck.
