Venture Capital, as an industry, suddenly finds itself at a critical stage in its life cycle as finally credible alternatives have arrived. It is under the same disruptive pressure as the companies it has backed in the last 20 years. Its traditional mantra, ‘change the economics and attack the old slow moving existing players’ is coming back to bite it. Two critical changes are forcing change; the first is that the amount of investment needed to start and grow a business is small and ever-decreasing and second, the old VC structure is too high a cost in real and commercial terms. Venture Capital - welcome to disruption!
This event will focus on what we have learned so far from crowd funding, micro-loans and micro-funding and where we believe the future of funding is heading. If you are thinking of securing new money in the next two years, you should be at this event on the 18th September at the Innovation Warehouse, www.theIW.org
