EU/UK: VCs backing competing businesses

From Paul Fisher blog- VCs backing competing businesses:

"It seems that every week we get contacted by a new investor looking for deal flow. I see a swath of new money coming back into the market whether is hedge funds trying to knock out Benchmark and Index or media corporates investing to protect their markets."

What is acceptable as an investment to the VP depends on the evaluation she puts on that investment and is also acceptable to the entrepreneur ie the deal is done when the price (evaluation) looks "right" to both parties.

Jeremy Liew of lsvp http://lsvp.wordpress.com/ has an interesting post of the “Asymmetric risk and the dangers of too high a valuation” inter alia “down round” at http://lsvp.wordpress.com/2007/07/09/asymmetric-risk-and-the-dangers-of-too-high-a-valuation/

Worth reading.

At least in Ireland, the theory (yet to be proven!!) is that some of the money (VC, BES tax schemes etc.) will swing back towards a more acceptant view of technology as an investment. The property boom of the last few years has not only slowed the technolgy startups but also, in may cases, robbed the industry of the successful entrepreneurs who moved their money and energy to property deals.
