Venture Capitalist Confidence

Venture capitalists were feeling less certain about their investments in the second quarter of 2015.
According to the Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist Confidence Index, venture capitalists were feeling less certain about their investments in the second quarter of 2015. They rated their confidence level a 3.73 on a five-point scale. That’s down from 3.81 last quarter, marking the lowest point in two years. But some, like Venky Ganesan of Menlo Ventures, remained optimistic. Said Ganesan, “The perfect storm of mobile, social, and cloud still remains strong and augers well for the health of the tech eco-system long-term.”
