Cyril Demaria on Venture Capital 2.0

AltAssets has just featured this article from HEC Alumnus Cyril Demaria concerning the current state of Venture Capital. Cyril makes some excellent points including the fact that the duration that a VC firm holds onto a portfolio company before an exit now stands at 8.6 years despite a typical fund lifespan of 10-12 years. With an increasing number of firms focusing on Cleantech that 8.6 year figure looks to rise giving a further impression that the VC business is becoming too institutionalized for it’s own good.
