(Via Bweek) At the TiEcon 2005 conference Promod Haque, of Norwest Venture Partners felt that over the next five to ten years there are going to be half as many venture capital firms in this business, and there are going to be half as many companies being created. Haque contends that there is a supply-demand imbalance between the amount of money earmarked for funding startups and the appetite for startups' products. There are simply too many companies created and not enough paying customers, he says. Haque feels that over the next ten years, you're going to get 30-year bond yields on venture capital investments ay fetch returns equivalent to 30 year bond yields. It's also because a glut of capital leads to valuations getting bid up even for viable companies. And Haque believes that We're in the middle of a mini-bubble again.
