Robert Ackerman of Allegis Capital has a good post on PEhub.com called "Venture Capital at a Tipping Point." In this post, Ackerman discusses his views on why venture returns are poised for an upward trajectory. The first reason is the "new era of of entrepreneurial innovation and creativity" where new developments in cloud computing, social media and mobile are pushing the edges of innovation outward. The second reason is the right-sizing of capital in the venture capital universe. Where for many years there was too much capital, the capital flows are now appropriate for the industry. Other reasons include the increase in corporate merger and acquisition activity, the JOBS Act which lower regulatory hurdles for venture capital-backed companies to go public, and the increased activity in the M&A and IPO markets. It's a good read. Here's the link: http://www.pehub.com/154685/robert-ackerman-venture-capital-at-a-tipping-point/
