It has been exactly one month since I last did a post here. Back from holiday today I cannot resist a short note on the financing of innovation and private equity in general.
Capital Finance gave on July, 9th the following 3-year investment trends for Limited Partners in private equity. Interestingly enough venture and buy-out are mostly up.
In the light of the subprime crisis and the probable increase in interest rates in the EU, it would be interesting to ask the exact same question now…
And to finish on a good note, just listen to this one found on Marc Andressen‘s blog. As the City is about to let go of a bunch of bankers it gives interesting insights as to what the mood is in the US!
