The most pressing issues (and glowing successes) for the Venture Capital industry will be discussed at Venture Capital Happy Hour (http://www.VCHappyHour.com), on Tuesday March 6, 2012, 6:00pm, in two cities, Boston and New York. Visionaries, investors and advisors of the next Facebook, Google and Groupon are invited to join Venture Capital Happy Hour, organized by Golden Networking (www.goldennetworking.net), great opportunities for practitioners to speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade, both opportunities and challenges.
The industry faces significant challenges; VC is no more than 4% of any institutional portfolio and the entire asset class attracts merely $20 billion or so each year. In comparison, hedge funds attract trillions, as do treasury bonds. CalPERS, the largest investor in venture capital, plans to reduce its allocation down to 1%. In fact, it will be skipping on its commitment to Khosla Ventures, one of the largest venture funds in the valley. Therefore, attendance to Venture Capital Happy Hour is critical for venture capitalists that want to prosper in the current environment.
