The Equity Kicker

As you can see from the chart above, 534 investments were made in the UK (above £0.5m) beating the previous high of 463, which was set back in 2000 at the height of the dotcom bubble madness. By Ascendant’s numbers, in 2016 £2.6bn was invested in the UK and Ireland, up 76% on the £1.5bn invested in 2014, but still well below the 2000 peak of £3.5bn.

Death Race 2000: How Safe Will Autonomous Vehicles Need To Be?

The technology behind autonomous navigation is developing quite rapidly. From our early investment in Cruise, we’ve gotten a vantage point on just how much progress has been made in the past three years alone. But if I’m confident about the tech, I’m less sure about the target. That is, how “safe” do autonomous vehicles need to be? And what is today’s reality?

The Covid-19 virus is not politically correct

Steve Blank

For example, car accidents ~ 39,000 deaths in 2019 and over three-fourths of a million dead since 2000, ~ 70,000 drug overdose deaths in 2019 and over three-fourths of a million dead since 2000. The Covid-19 virus is not politically correct. It discriminates against the old and the unhealthy. The biggest risk factor in dying from the virus is age. If you’re 60 to 70 years old, you’re 30 times more likely to die from Covid-19 than if you’re under 40.

Why Venture Capital No Longer Defines Innovation

That was up 29% over 2000 in just five years. Today’s venture capital deal flow to innovative new companies looks a lot like a fat man trying to squeeze into a slim Italian suit. It just doesn’t fit.

Is the Lean Startup Dead?

Most entrepreneurs today don’t remember the Dot-Com bubble of 1995 or the Dot-Com crash that followed in 2000. The idea of the Lean Startup was built on top of the rubble of the 2000 Dot-Com crash. As valuations have long passed the peak of the 2000 Internet bubble, VC’s and founders who previously had to wait until they sold their company or took it public to make money no longer have to wait.

Lessons From The Internet Bubble: Growth vs. Profitability

Feld Thoughts

Between the spring of 2000 and the end of 2001, I had the worst, most stressful, and most painful business period of my life. I was on the board of several companies on their list of 100 public companies that would be out of money by the end of 2000 and remember that my reaction to the article was anger, frustration with being maligned, and incredulity that Barron’s would write such an irresponsible article.

Some Thoughts on Ownership

View from Seed

One of the tactical moves that I observed USV employ during the mid 2000’s was targeting a relatively lower percentage than their peers. When I started out in VC, there was a strong consensus around early stage investors that the “right” level of ownership was 20%. Pretty much every firm was targeting at least 20% ownership. And I found that pricing, check sizes, and deal sizes were strangely shaped by the 20% target as much as the actual needs of the company.

The wrong question: Is now the right time to start a company?

A Smart Bear: Startups and Marketing for Geeks

Instacart might be a good idea in 2017, but Webvan wasn’t a good idea in 2000. The answer is always yes. But it’s the wrong question. I started Smart Bear in a recession (2002) and it went great. I’ve been explaining for eight years why recessions are a great time to start a company. It’s wise because costs are low (every vendor is thrilled to have new business) and if you can get people to buy when money is tight, you’ve really proved you have a desirable product.
