The State of Venture Capital: Paul Maeder

Published: 5/2/2011 8:29:18 AM

There is a good interview of long-time VC Paul Maeder in the Mass High Tech Business publication.

In the interview, Maeder said basically four things:

  1. New York is giving Boston a run for its money in East Coast predominance, primarily because of the rise of media startups in NYC.
  2. The venture capital industry is still facing a liquidity challenge because public markets are not open to companies with annual revenues in the range of $30 million - $60 million.
  3. The venture capital industry has shrunk by 40% since its height in 2000.
  4. Technology itself is becoming less important in IT startups - business models are where the new innovation is.

Paul Maeder cofounded Highland Capital Partners and is the incoming chairman of the National Venture Capital Association.
