Dear Mobile Movers & Shakers,
Welcome back from the summer break! On September 6th we have a special topic dedicated to the VC market in the Mobile Sector. So if you are in the starting phase of your business you should pay special attention:-)
Venture capital funding took a nosedive in 2009 but is set to come back, especially in the Internet and Mobile sector, as entrepreneurs look for business opportunities in cloud computing, social networking and mobile technologies. The collapse of credit markets after the failure of banks like Lehman Brothers in 2008 forced business to stop making capital expenditures, and blocked exit strategies such as IPOs and mergers and acquisitions for venture capitalists. "Now that the economy has begun to show signs of improvement, we expect to see dollars flow more freely back into those sectors that offered the most promise before the recession began," said Mark Heesen, president of the US based National Venture Capital Association (NVCA). The U.S. market tends to drive similar trends in Europe. The first European countries to adopt new trends are usually Germany and France, analysts say. More money is expected to flow from venture capitalists as they see that exit strategies -- such as IPOs, that essentially allow them to cash out and, potentially, reap profit -- are starting to present themselves.
