In recent years, America’s venture capital industry does not appear to be higher than active; so often hear people talk: “America venture capital has been gradually declining!” America’s venture capital industry is getting smaller living space! ”
For these statements, I do not agree with, which is a cognitive bias in the interpretation of the venture capital industry in the narrow sense; fact, America funds for venture capital behavior is still warm, but they may not be the name of “venture capital” or “form”.
Let me give some examples to illustrate. Venture Capital Association, a member-Warwick, the actual funds under management of $ 600 million, but it’s registered in the list of members of the Society is a company the size of funds of $ 20 million; located in Warwick overseas company is also engaged in the venture capital behavior, but the size of funds under management has not been reflected in the registration information of the Association; another Member – - Yong Wei, had a similar situation; Thus, from appearances, America venture capital the scale of funds under management of the industry, seems to be reduced, but this is not true.
