Sequoia Capital - Busy Investing

Published: 10/26/2009 8:17:03 AM, comments: 0

At the recent Y Combinator Startup School event, prominent Internet venture capital firm Sequoia Capital announced that it has been making more investments in the past 12 months than in the preceding two years.

Apparently, the firm believes that the best time to make investments is during an economic downturn, which has historically resulted in the creation of some of the most influential and successful technology companies.

Sequoia invests in companies that have very clear return on investment opportunities and which focus on monetization early.
