Technologist at Scalability.org confirms our findings



A technologist at scalability.orgicon_external-link_15x12 lends well founded support to our own findings, in how even High Performance Computing is and has been tagged as a false negative by many venture capital investors. He should know, he built his 10-year old profitable HPC company all on his own, tells stories about others, and says: “Reading Georges van Hoegaerden’s articles at his company’s site had lent support to some of my greatest [VC] concerns.”

We love reading about the Real American spirit: the defiance and refusal to submit to investor socialism that turns our country subprime.

Georges is covered in the Silicon Valley premier newspaper the San Jose Mercury News and provides realistic contrast to the "upbeat" VC performance for 2010 (above) after ten years of less than 10% IRR. Georges' quote follows below:



"Deal volume and exits will improve moderately in 2010, yet have little positive effect on overall VC fund returns to Limited Partners. With a VC funding pipe stuffed with sub-prime investments, 2010 returns and deal intake will remain predominantly subprime and continue to contract and lose faith with Limited Partners."

Lorenzo like many, gets it



Lorenzo Geraci gets it, yet I have no idea who he is.

And in a true meritocracy that doesn't matter. Lorenzo dissects my "Idiot CEOs" article for what it is: "it paints a very clear analytical picture of what the CEO a typical VC backed company might expect, not always pretty. And while Georges' tone is a bit sarcastic, it is not overly pessimistic, it is pretty real, without fluff, or best case scenario; describing best case scenarios or atypical results was not the intent of the article."

The response to my article has been overwhelmingly positive and we've collected some of the accolades. Somewhat to my surprise a few VCs, who want to be part of the solution have reached out to talk - an effort we applaud.

What I want everyone to understand is that as a successful participant of the innovative ecosystem I am not interested in spinning stories to boost my readership, but I am focused on working to fix the performance of all participants (fund-managers, VCs and entrepreneurs) to ensure the future of technology as a sustainable and high performing asset class.

I spent 10 years building startups before I felt qualified to write about it. That real world experience is the basis for my opinions and blogs. Thanks for your feedback.

How to spot subprime VC covered by Reuters' PEHub


The Venture Capital model is not broken, just the majority of operators in it. The same problem as in the home lending markets. Inaccurate calculation of risk and opportunity, deflates innovation rather than boost it.

It is important for our ecosystem and entrepreneurs to not get discouraged, but to understand that not all early stage innovation is built using the artificial world and rule-book many VCs have created around innovation. Large companies like Apple and Google are out-innovating VC portfolio companies left and right, using more realistic strategies that are based on sound business principles and plenty of cash.

We hope articles like these help entrepreneurs avoid wasting time and focus on the right VCs.

BTW: the 24% drop in startup valuation in the accompanying article is the case in point.
