EU VC: What have we learned?
From Paul Fisher's blog-European Venture Capital: What have we learned?:
"I think that the European VC scene is a notably better place and that THNGS ARE GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME.
The ecosystem for entrepreneurs is getting better: from uni spin-out hubs & clubs to booze fuelled dinner table debates.
The quality and segmentation of investors is getting better; from international success-stories like Index to small, ultra focussed funds like Eden Ventures.
The DIALOGUE is getting better;
I doff my cap to initiatives like open coffee club which fosters mutual understanding.
I believe VC –entrepreneur relationships are far less adversarial and far more informed than they were 8 years ago. (Fred has a nice angle on this too)"
