A Venture Capital Revival?

Veteran VC William Quigley has produced a report - The Quigley Report - that is generating some discussion in the tech world.

The main take away that I have from report is that as institutional investors (pension funds, endowments, etc.) pull back their investments in venture capital firms, this will paradoxically lead to a period ahead of superior returns for the industry.

He has an accompanying 61 page slide deck that is chock-full of data to support his conclusions.
While industry exit conditions are indeed promising due to record cash hoards by acquisitive large companies, the shrinking of the venture capital industry base and a vibrant entrepreneur ecosystem taking advantage of recent technology advancements in software and hardware industries, the future is always an unknown.

Geopolitical upheaval, possible financial stagnation in the US due to political gridlock and other potential sources of uncertainty always affect the macro environment.

Nevertheless, Quigley presents a compelling bullish argument for venture capital industry going forward.
