CONCEPT: There is no place like Silicon Valley or is it now the Bay Area – kinda

Source and Quote from E&Y Report by

Despite an overall slowdown in Q4, emerging regions like Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego, and Orange County bucked the trend with increased investment across the board. Combined, they raised over $3.8 billion in funds during the final quarter and Seattle (18%), San Diego (29%), and Orange County (24%) saw double-digit growth. The leading sectors responsible for this increase were consistent with national results, including information technology, business and financial services, and health care.

CONCEPT

Seattle, Boston, Los Angles, San Diego, Austin, DC Metro (Potomac?) are all on the radar.  However, should you still move to the Bay Area or a second-tier city or stay at home?

Planning on interviewing people and place a paid article in Forbes or other freelance opportunities.

More to come on concept………………..

REPOST: 2019 EY

2019 finishes as second strongest VC investment year on record

As the 2010s came to a close, we can say with confidence that we experienced the greatest 10-year run in history for entrepreneurs raising venture capital. Between 2010 and the end of 2019, venture-backed startups raised more than $730 billion, almost doubling the $400 billion raised in the prior decade. What can the trends of the last year – and the last decade – tell us about what’s to come?

Let’s look at what drove the massive growth spurt in funding over the past decade:

  1. An explosion in IT; software “eating the world”
  2. The availability of mobile computing bringing goods and services to consumers anytime, anywhere
  3. The technology enablement of industries — business and financial services boomed with the rise of FinTech
  4. Continued advances in health care, health services, and biopharmaceuticals

The environment was also shaped by a prolonged zero interest rate environment that saw investors seeking yield and turning to venture to get it. In an era of abundant private capital, companies raised significant amounts and poured that into topline growth, in some cases not building infrastructure or positive unit economics. This is now being viewed with more scrutiny, especially in the consumer-facing markets.
