The State of Venture Capital and the Internet

Later today I’ll be giving a keynote at the VCJ Venture Alpha conference here in San Francisco. I was asked to speak about the topic of “what is going on in the venture capital world and what is the next big thing after social networking?”

Tough topic but I have some views. I thought you might enjoy reading the presentation before even others see it!  It is pretty self explanatory. You can view here or go to DocStoc to download it (no, I’m not an investor, it’s just a great repository for docs).

Next week I promised to follow up on PE Hub, the main journal VCs read about our industry, with a detail description of some specifics that are happening. Watch out for that – I will have a lot more details.

I’ve listed some great VCs in the presentation. I’ve left off many great ones. It isn’t intentional. You can’t cover everybody in a prezzo. Please don’t read anything into that.

And all feedback welcome! See you in the comments.
