At The Mercy Of Venture Capitalists

from the public-info-or-private-info? dept

Last month we had an article saying that the venture capital world was buzzing over the news that the University of Texas was going to publish the results of the VCs they had invested in. Now Red Herring takes a look at the debate as well. They point out that not knowing this information isn't any "fun" for people covering the industry, however, it also makes some sense in encouraging VCs to take long term risks instead of aiming for short term returns.
