►Venture Capital: 7 Top VC Firms & Funds Ranked - AngelKings.com
 
03:32
http://goo.gl/1RspNU | Ranking of the top venture capital firms in America - list of the best venture capital funds by success, return on investment (ROI) and internal rate of return (IRR) for investors. Expert venture capital investor, Ross Blankenship (http://rossblankenship.com) shows you a list of the best VC Firms and why they're ranked highest in the United States. What are the top venture capital firms? We've got the answer. Venture capital firms like NEA, Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Khosla, and SV Angels receive capital from investors who already have wealth and want to grow more of it through non–traditional means. Then, they take that money and invest it into startup companies and other ventures that a traditional bank wouldn't be interested in, based on the risk. Investing in startup companies can be a risky proposition, and not for the faint of heart. Still, many people do it because they know that the rewards for success can be lucrative. Some venture capitalists just take their own money and invest it, but some form firms that use their money and that of others, and then choose where to invest based on consensus. A number of factors make a great venture capital firm. The success it has with investing is important, but other factors have to be considered in order to determine why a VC firm is successful and what it can offer to investors that other firms may not. What makes a successful VC firm? What do these firms do differently that catapults them to the forefront of their industry? Those are questions both investors and startups want answers for, but those answers may not be as clear–cut as one would expect. Some VC firms stand out, though, and understanding what they do and how they do it can help investors get a handle on what makes a good VC firm and how these firms attain (and retain) their success.

A VC with $575 million to spend lists the 3 qualities startups need to get her funding
 
10:19
Accel is, perhaps, not a household name but it has backed some of the most famous and successful entrepreneurs in the world. It has ploughed money into global successes like Facebook, Supercell, and Spotify over the years. Now, its European arm has just raised a huge new fund of $575 million to hand out to European entrepreneurs across the continent. The new fund will focus on automation, financial technology, and healthcare. Accel aims to be the first institutional investor in startups. Sonali de Rycker, partner at Accel, has led investments into some of the company's most high-profile partners. She will have heard pitches from celebrity entrepreneurs such as Spotify's Daniel Ek. She told Business Insider the company prides itself on picking out the "crème de la crème" of startups. That's evidenced by earlier big-name successes, plus rising stars such as UiPath, which is now the most valuable AI company in the world, and UK banking startup Monzo, a beloved challenger to the high street bank. The fund also invested in Deliveroo, the UK food delivery company that just raised funding from Amazon. De Rycker said Accel takes about 3,000 initial calls or meetings with startups every year, and that whittles down into about 1,000 second calls or meetings. The team then narrows that down further to 50 to 75 companies, and finally chooses to invest in 10 or 15 companies a year. In other words, an entrepreneur who makes initial contact with Accel has a 0.3% chance of being funded. De Rycker talked to Business Insider about the three qualities that makes entrepreneurs stand out in pitch meetings. The ability to create a market where there was none "We like entrepreneurs who can join the dots in a different way, they can see around corners," said De Rycker. As an example, she points to Spotify, the streaming company which rivals Apple Music and went public last year. Spotify had a radically different view on music consumption and piracy, billing themselves as a competitor to piracy rather than a competitor to physical records. CEO and cofounder Daniel Ek pushed this narrative hard in the face of criticism that he was undercutting musicians. It's better, he reasoned, that people pay something for Spotify and Spotify pays artists, than people paying nothing at all for pirated, low-quality music. His goal was to make it easier to stream music from a reliable platform than to pirate music and, largely, it worked. Piracy fell thanks to streaming services. "It's building a company that no one through they needed, the ability to create a market," added De Rycker. "How do you know that? It's just about the way they talk about the industry. You feel, 'Wow, that's so compelling.'" Maintain humility De Rycker said Accel also backs entrepreneurs who are capable of leaving their own egos at the door and outsourcing critical decisions to their team. "The reason I think humility [is important] is it's a foundation for building a company that has a shot at le
The Valley of Death for Startups - Dave Berkus
 
04:56
Dave Berkus has invested in 161 Angel Investments and earned an IRR of 101%. One of his unique strategies is helping his portfolio companies push through the "Valley of Death", the gap between Angel Financing and Venture Capital investment. Not only has DAve invested in 161 startup companies, he has invested in follow-on rounds of funding for 92% of those companies. Why does he do this? Because Dave has been around long enough to understand the same thing that VCs do: When you are the deepest pocket at the table, be wise enough to keep a "Capital Reserve". A Capital Reserve is simple: If I'm writing a check to invest in a startup, the one thing I know for sure is that they are going to miss the revenue forecast over the next 12-18 months. Not because they are dishonest, but because in the startup world, new information comes to light all of the time that will impact achievement of revenue targets. The question is not "Will they hit the revenue forecast?" - we already know the answer that that question. A better question to ask is "By how much", meaning - how far off are they going to be? 5-10% miss? 50% off? 75% off? The answer to that question will tell you how much more time and money the company will need to survive the Valley of Death. I have spent 26 years on the management teams of startup companies, and forecasting revenue is not an exact science. The smartest investors in the world factor this into their portfolio planning. If I write a check for $1,000,000 and I'm the deepest pocket at the table, I can predict that the company is going to come back to me at some point and say "it's going to take us more time and more money than we anticipated." We've seen this movie before - many, many times. So wisdom tells us that to set aside a "reserve" amount of capital to bridge the company to the milestone achievements needed to get Venture Capital investment into the company. At this point, the Angel Investor is no longer the deepest pocket at the table. And the cycle continues - nearly all venture capitalists create a "Capital Reserve" for every company that they invest in. Because they know that if they don't, there is a high probability that the company may run out of cash before they hit the milestones needed for the next round of investment. VCs do this all the time, but they don't talk about it that much, for obvious reasons. If I told you that I'm writing you a check for $5,000,000 now, and I know you're going to make mistakes, so I've got another $2,500,000 set aside to bail you out, then you will mentally note that you actually have $7,500,000 to work with. That's not wise for anyone - it works against the notion of accountability to the revenue forecast and budget that you pitched.

Is VC Money Right for Your Company?
 
36:24
Raising venture capital investment is many times heralded as having succeeded or the end entrepreneurial journey, but rather it is one of many milestones and one which comes with more oversight, governance and performance metrics. Only a small percentage of companies should actually raise from VCs and the reality is that you can build phenomenally successful companies without it, as well. From seeking out alternative investment avenues (F&F, loans, grants, etc.) or initially bootstrapping through revenues, many of the most successful companies (Nike, Spanx, Shutterstock, MailChimp, BrainTree, ) either did not raise any VC money or held off until they were in a high growth position. This discussion will go through the basics of Venture Capital, the types of companies VCs are traditionally looking to invest in, why raising VC money might not be best for your company and how to best position your company if raising from VCs. About the speaker: Deepen is a Partner at Courtside Ventures, which is an early-stage VC fund, backed by Dan Gilbert (Cleveland Cavaliers) and WPP.

Venture capital funds invest in companies in exchange for equity in the companies they invest in, which usually have a novel technology or business model in high technology industries, such as biotechnology and IT. The typical venture capital investment occurs after a seed funding round as the first round of institutional capital to fund growth (also referred to as Series A round) in the interest of generating a return through an eventual exit event, such as an IPO or trade sale of the company. Venture capital is a type of private equity. In addition to angel investing, equity crowdfunding and other seed funding options, venture capital is attractive for new companies with limited operating history that are too small to raise capital in the public markets and have not reached the point where they are able to secure a bank loan or complete a debt offering. In exchange for the high risk that venture capitalists assume by investing in smaller and less mature companies, venture capitalists usually get significant control over company decisions, in addition to a significant portion of the companies' ownership (and consequently value). Venture capital is also a way in which the private and public sectors can construct an institution that systematically creates networks for the new firms and industries, so that they can progress. This institution helps identify and combine business functions such as finance, technical expertise, marketing know-how, and business models. Once integrated, these enterprises succeed by becoming nodes in the search networks for designing and building products in their domain.However, venture capitalists' decisions are often biased, exhibiting for instance overconfidence and illusion of control, much like entrepreneurial decisions in general.

Each venture investor shares their own background, various details about their fund, what makes their VC firm unique, when to approach them as a founder or startup, what they can offer startups. From early stage VC firms to Growth stage VC firms. From a broad investment focus to specific investment thesis. Very insightful for entrepreneurs and founders who want to learn more about each single venture firm, investing in tech and fundraising. ---- These videos are part of The Investor Series events that take place in Copenhagen. 4 times per year, the Danish tech company, Tame, gathers 40+ top VCs from the US, Asia and Europe and 40 top Nordic startups for a day of matchmaking & VC pitches. On the day, we also invite 40 top tech angels and 10 international journalists to cover the event. We've reversed the classic format, so at The Investor Series, venture capital firms (VC's) are pitching to startup founders & business angels.In addition, startup founders get 6 one-on-one matches with VC investors. Every startup is pre-screened based on their idea and the stage they are in. The matchmaking process ensures that all attending parties (startups, business angels & venture firms) increase their chances of a) securing investments (startups) and b) investing in the right companies (VCs). ---- Thanks so much for watching!

CHM Live | Techtonic Shift: China's Rise in Venture Capital and Tech
 
01:18:12
[Recorded June 20, 2018] Remember when "Made in China" was synonymous with a cheap toy or electronic knockoff? Those days are long over. Chinese tech firms, once seen as quaint or copycats, now have Alibaba, Tencent, and Ant Financial counted in the world's top 10 most valuable internet companies, alongside Alphabet, Facebook, and Amazon. And the country's tech economy is taking on, and beating, global rivals. Uber China was bought out by Didi Chuxing in 2016, Tencent's WeChat ecosystem is more ubiquitous than Facebook Messenger, and Chinese bike-sharing companies have recently spawned copycats in the heart of Silicon Valley. Chinese founders are pushing the edge with new business models and disruptive innovations . . . and venture capitalists from both sides of the Pacific are shifting investments in a big way with important implications. During the past decade, China's share of global venture capital investment has risen from 5 percent to 24 percent. Last year China topped global venture spending in artificial intelligence at 48 percent of $12 billion globally in 2017, compared with the United States at 38 percent. China now accounts for more than 25 percent of the global unicorn companies valued at more than $1 billion. And the US National Science Board predicts that R&D spending in China will outpace the US by next year. What are the underlying trends driving this techtonic shift? Who are the people and companies to watch? What are the opportunities and challenges for investors and firms in China, Silicon Valley, and beyond? Carmen Chang, pioneer tech deal maker in China, and Hans Tung, ranked #20 on this year’s Forbes Midas List, are two of the leading venture capitalists deeply involved in bridging Silicon Valley and China. Chang led many seminal deals in China, spanning transactions with Lenovo, Foxconn, and Tencent, as well as IPOs of SMIC, Speadtrum, and others. Tung counts 11 unicorns in his portfolio today, including Meili, Wish, Slack, and Airbnb, as well as Xiaomi, underway for an IPO this summer, the biggest in the global pipeline for 2018.

A VC with $575 million to spend lists the 3 qualities startups need to get her funding
 
10:19
Accel is, perhaps, not a household name but it has backed some of the most famous and successful entrepreneurs in the world. It has ploughed money into global successes like Facebook, Supercell, and Spotify over the years. Now, its European arm has just raised a huge new fund of $575 million to hand out to European entrepreneurs across the continent. The new fund will focus on automation, financial technology, and healthcare. Accel aims to be the first institutional investor in startups. Sonali de Rycker, partner at Accel, has led investments into some of the company's most high-profile partners. She will have heard pitches from celebrity entrepreneurs such as Spotify's Daniel Ek. She told Business Insider the company prides itself on picking out the "crème de la crème" of startups. That's evidenced by earlier big-name successes, plus rising stars such as UiPath, which is now the most valuable AI company in the world, and UK banking startup Monzo, a beloved challenger to the high street bank. The fund also invested in Deliveroo, the UK food delivery company that just raised funding from Amazon. De Rycker said Accel takes about 3,000 initial calls or meetings with startups every year, and that whittles down into about 1,000 second calls or meetings. The team then narrows that down further to 50 to 75 companies, and finally chooses to invest in 10 or 15 companies a year. In other words, an entrepreneur who makes initial contact with Accel has a 0.3% chance of being funded. De Rycker talked to Business Insider about the three qualities that makes entrepreneurs stand out in pitch meetings. "We like entrepreneurs who can join the dots in a different way, they can see around corners," said De Rycker. As an example, she points to Spotify, the streaming company which rivals Apple Music and went public last year. Spotify had a radically different view on music consumption and piracy, billing themselves as a competitor to piracy rather than a competitor to physical records. CEO and cofounder Daniel Ek pushed this narrative hard in the face of criticism that he was undercutting musicians. It's better, he reasoned, that people pay something for Spotify and Spotify pays artists, than people paying nothing at all for pirated, low-quality music. His goal was to make it easier to stream music from a reliable platform than to pirate music and, largely, it worked. Piracy fell thanks to streaming services. "It's building a company that no one through they needed, the ability to create a market," added De Rycker. "How do you know that? It's just about the way they talk about the industry. You feel, 'Wow, that's so compelling.'" De Rycker said Accel also backs entrepreneurs who are capable of leaving their own egos at the door and outsourcing critical decisions to their team. "The reason I think humility [is important] is it's a foundation for building a company that has a shot at leaving a legacy," she said. "It's about durability. It's important becau
Late-stage venture investing for tech companies non-existent in India: Suvir Sujan
 
28:55
Unlike Silicon Valley, there is a dearth of late-stage venture investing for technology companies in India, believes Suvir Sujan, co-founder of Nexus Venture Partners, a home-grown early stage venture capital firm with $600 million in assets under management (AUM). While late-stage capital is available and there are enough private equity funds who could sign larger cheques, their business model is largely centred around investing in revenue generating companies with each of them delivering some returns or IRRs in the portfolio. "There is no concept in these private equity funds to invest in portfolio companies where there is a lot of alpha where some companies can make 20-30 times or some companies can go bust," he says in an exclusive video interview with VCCircle. "We call this business model of investing in such late-stage companies where there is a lot of alpha, late-stage VC, which does not exist in this country," he adds. Sujan goes on to argue that had late-stage VC investing been prevalent in the country, a lot of the companies would not have resorted to raising money from abroad. "One of our portfolio companies PubMatic had to raise money from an investor in the US. For instance, InMobi raised money from SoftBank. I would bet that had there been enough late-stage VCs in the country, they would have invested in InMobi," he argues. Last year, PubMatic, a digital ad platform for publishers and a Nexus Venture Capital portfolio company, raised a mega round of $45 million through mezzanine finance, led by US-based August Capital. So, would Nexus be foraying into the late-stage venture space, having identified a gap here? "No, not really," he says. "We actually are not sure if we are the best people to do that. It's still a private equity type skill set with risks associated with it," he reasons. In terms of technology trends and white spaces that will drive growth, Sujan believes that, "a lot of legacy software is being replaced globally" which opens floodgates of opportunities for tech companies. He is also a firm believer that a dozen of billion dollar technology companies will come out of India going forward. Watch the video for the full interview.

Lemon list: The top 20 worst cars to buy in 2019 | AutoExpert John Cadogan
 
17:37
Number 20: Infiniti. If you’re wondering how bad owning an Infiniti is, if you were stupid enough to purchase an Infiniti QX70 S Auto 3.0 diesel SUV in 2014 - early $90,000s on the road, you’ll trade it in today for about $27,000. Call it two-thirds of the capital investment up in smoke in four years. Number 19: Citroen. Gorgeous design. Average reliability at best. Crap support, historically, although a new distributor might put a dent in that over time. But virtually zero sales - they don’t even manage to sell 50 Citroens a month. Number 18: MINI. I know. I watched The Italian Job, too - both versions. I get it. But the novelty is going to wear off. Some poor bastard paid about $65,000 for the shitbox convertible MINI roadster John Cooper Works auto in 2014 and trades it in today for early $20s. Number 17: Volvo. Don’t waste my time. Volvo is nowhere, commercially. It’s a joke. Styling is great; they drive OK, too. But reliability and support in Australia is shit. But resale is where Volvo really is number one in number twos. Imagine being the poor sap who bought the MY15 flagship XC60 T6 R-Design. More than $80k on the road back then down to about $30k for a trade-in today. Number 16: Jaguar. In ‘Straya, reliability and support are crap - that’s the price of admission. Sales have plummeted since 2016, and resale is a disaster. But aside from that, great idea. Number 15: Land Rover. It’s everything I said about Jaguar, with added off-road capability. You do not need a Land Rover in your life. Number 14 - another joke brand: Peugeot. Sales, nowhere. Reliability, nowhere. Support, nowhere. Resale, nowhere. Beautiful styling, though. The fantasy that gets people across the line is: European quality. A step up. Let’s do two for one now: 12 and 13 - Nissan and Renault. When these companies merged, it was a bad deal for Nissan and a good deal for Renault. But, inevitably, Renault ‘tech’ metastasized into Nissan’s lineup. That was bad. Then the GFC hit, and Nissan suffered irreversible brain damage. And then there’s Nissan’s appalling Jatco CVT transmissions, which are the least reliable in the universe. Number 11: Mercedes-Benz.Unfortunately, Mercedes-Benz is the worst premium carmaker for customer support. They are the Antichrist at this. This company seems to think Australian Consumer Law is optional, or negotiable. Something those dicks are above. They are complete arseholes when you have a problem, and they will fight you every inch of the way - to the point of exhaustion. My strong advice is: Buy a BMW or a Lexus. Let’s do a mass extinction now: 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10: Everything from Fiat Chrysler. That means Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge. This company has the worst combination of poor reliability and shit support. They are truly terrible. Jeep - the biggest of Fiat Chrysler’s crap brands - managed to inflict more than 30,000 of its shitheaps on unsuspecting ‘Strayans in 2014. But word quickly got around. They sold only about 8000 in 2017. That has to be commercially unsustainable. Another mass extinction now: Numbers 3, 4 and 5: Volkswagen, and related shitbox brands Audi and Skoda. This is the company decided it was OK to kill thousands of people prematurely by cheating emissions regulations in a massive, global criminal conspiracy. It is completely immoral and unimaginably wicked for a carmaker to do this. This was not an accident. It was a calculated criminal conspiracy. Number two: Ford. Ford is in the worst shape of all time. Globally they are looking to cut $11 billion (US dollars) from the salary budget and more than $20 billion in total from operating costs. Markets like ours don’t make Ford any money. There are going to be major cuts. Ford’s engineering is reprehensibly bad, and the company also seems to take delight in not only breaching its consumer law obligations, but (reprehensibly enough) bending you over and profiteering from you, when you are up against it with one of their shit cars. The number one brand that you should not buy, is Holden. Holden is on the fast track to failure. Poor quality, shit products, terrible support. It’s the unholy trinity of dice rolling with every purchase. But what really does it for me, with Holden, is trust. You cannot trust Holden. In 2012, Holden accepted a $275 million taxpayer-funded government rescue package. A parachute, stuffed with your money. They promised to invest $1bn in Australian manufacturing, to keep Australian manufacturing alive for at least a decade. The next year, they announced the closure of the factory. They kept the money. They didn’t make the investment. In January 2017 Holden quietly sent $150 million back to Detroit - as part of a bullshit balance sheet restructuring. Kinda says it all right there, don’t you think, about Holden’s purported commitment to Australia? Doing business with Holden is like joining Hannibal Lecter for dinner.

A VC with $575 million to spend lists the 3 qualities startups need to get her funding
 
10:19
Accel is, perhaps, not a household name but it has backed some of the most famous and successful entrepreneurs in the world. It has ploughed money into global successes like Facebook, Supercell, and Spotify over the years. Now, its European arm has just raised a huge new fund of $575 million to hand out to European entrepreneurs across the continent. The new fund will focus on automation, financial technology, and healthcare. Accel aims to be the first institutional investor in startups. Sonali de Rycker, partner at Accel, has led investments into some of the company's most high-profile partners. She will have heard pitches from celebrity entrepreneurs such as Spotify's Daniel Ek. She told Business Insider the company prides itself on picking out the "crème de la crème" of startups. That's evidenced by earlier big-name successes, plus rising stars such as UiPath, which is now the most valuable AI company in the world, and UK banking startup Monzo, a beloved challenger to the high street bank. The fund also invested in Deliveroo, the UK food delivery company that just raised funding from Amazon. De Rycker said Accel takes about 3,000 initial calls or meetings with startups every year, and that whittles down into about 1,000 second calls or meetings. The team then narrows that down further to 50 to 75 companies, and finally chooses to invest in 10 or 15 companies a year. In other words, an entrepreneur who makes initial contact with Accel has a 0.3% chance of being funded. De Rycker talked to Business Insider about the three qualities that makes entrepreneurs stand out in pitch meetings. "We like entrepreneurs who can join the dots in a different way, they can see around corners," said De Rycker. As an example, she points to Spotify, the streaming company which rivals Apple Music and went public last year. Spotify had a radically different view on music consumption and piracy, billing themselves as a competitor to piracy rather than a competitor to physical records. CEO and cofounder Daniel Ek pushed this narrative hard in the face of criticism that he was undercutting musicians. It's better, he reasoned, that people pay something for Spotify and Spotify pays artists, than people paying nothing at all for pirated, low-quality music. His goal was to make it easier to stream music from a reliable platform than to pirate music and, largely, it worked. Piracy fell thanks to streaming services. "It's building a company that no one through they needed, the ability to create a market," added De Rycker. "How do you know that? It's just about the way they talk about the industry. You feel, 'Wow, that's so compelling.'" De Rycker said Accel also backs entrepreneurs who are capable of leaving their own egos at the door and outsourcing critical decisions to their team. "The reason I think humility [is important] is it's a foundation for building a company that has a shot at leaving a legacy," she said. "It's about durability. It's important becau

Navratna was the title given originally to 9 Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs) identified by the Government of India in 1997 as "public sector companies that have comparative advantages", giving them greater autonomy to compete in the global market so as to "support [them] in their drive to become global giants". PSU companies are divided into three categories: · Maharatna · Navratna · Miniratna ( Category 1 and Category 2) In 2009, the government established the Maharatna status, which raises a company's investment ceiling from Rs. 1,000 crore to Rs. 5,000 crore. The Maharatna firms can now decide on investments of up to 15 per cent of their net worth in a project; the Navaratna companies could invest up to Rs 1,000 crore without explicit government approval. There are currently 7 Maharatnas, 14 Navratnas and 53 Miniratnas-I and 16 Miniratna-II. · Maharatna · Three years with an annual net profit of over Rs. 2,500 crore · Net worth of Rs. 10,000 crore · Turnover of Rs. 25,000 crore · Navratna · A score of 60 (out of 100), based on six parameters which include net profit, net worth, total manpower cost, total cost of production, cost of services, PBDIT (Profit Before Depreciation, Interest and Taxes), capital employed, etc. · A company must first be a Miniratna and have 4 independent directors on its board before it can be made a Navratna. · Miniratna Category-I · Have made profits continuously for the last three years or earned a net profit of Rs. 30 crore or more in one of the three years. · Miniratna Category-II . · Maharatna: up to Rs.1,000 crore – Rs. 5,000 crore, are free to decide on investments up to 15% of their net worth in a project. · Navratna: up to Rs. 1,000 crore or 15% of their net worth on a single project or 30% of their net worth in the whole year (not exceeding Rs. 1,000 crores). · Miniratna-I: up to Rs. 500 crore or equal to their net worth, whichever is lower. · Miniratna-II: up to Rs. 300 crore or up to 50% of their net worth, whichever is lower.
