Startup Bubble 2.O?

STARTUP BUBBLE 2.0? (S) THE NEW STARTUP ECOSYSTEM In many ways, the latter half of last year was an excellent time for the venture capital world. Following the recent abysmal economic dent on the industry, investment activity seemed to picked up considerably. And word around town says that 2011 seems to be shaping up even better, thanks to major financings of giants such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Here, we explore two questions: is there indeed another coming of the dot com bubble? And how can startups attain the proper funding-the lifeblood for any company? VENTURE CAPITAL ENTHUSIASM RETURNS TO PRE-COLLAPSE NUMBERS After a major dip in late 2008 and early 2009, the Venture Capital industry returned back to original pre-collapse numbers. The total capital invested in Q1 2011 was even higher than the pre-collapse days in early 2008; however, the number of deals was still significantly lower. This positive trend indicates that it may be a good time for startups to raise capital for their businesses.

TIPS FROM PROS One thing that most fundraising experts can agree on regarding a startup formula is that there is no one clear formula. There is, however, plenty of advice to be dispensed: "Venture capitalists are living on "Pick a big market because I don't believe in picking ideas..whatever the idea is, it will change." borrowed time, no matter how you look at it there's going to be a reconciliation."
