VCs Back To Funding Actual Startups

from the making-risk-capital-a-little-more-risky dept

It looks like venture capitalists are finally willing to actually bet a little of that money they’ve been hoarding on actual startups. Rather than focusing just on C-round and higher deals, last quarter more than 30% of the deals went to “early stage” companies. This seems to match with what most people in the startup world have been saying lately. Of course, the VCs are still complaining that they actually have to compete for deals these days, but it’s about time they realized that if everyone else in the world has to compete, so should they.
