Nexus Ventures Survey Shows Investment Increasing in 2010 Q2Nexus Ventures predicts an increase in venture capital investment during 2010 Q2, which is based upon the release of its 2010 Q2 venture capital research survey. The venture capital community continues to express optimism for growth of their portfolio companies in terms of revenue and hiring, and predicts an increase in early stage investments. Despite the positive momentum predicted for Q2 2010, Nexus Ventures remain slightly concerned about the status of the economic recovery and overall business conditions.
The predicted growth in hiring and increasing company revenues substantiate the prediction last quarter that overall growth and recovery for the technology industry is on the near-term horizon. With nearly half of the companies included in the research survey reporting an increase in early stage investment and none predicting large-scale layoffs, the technology sector has become less volatile. VCs and their portfolio companies are finally starting to see the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
Nexus Ventures key highlights from the 2010 Q2 research survey include:
* Projected increases in hiring. Companies predict twenty-five percent of portfolio companies will increase their workforce by more than ten percent. In addition, no companies predicted layoffs of more than ten percent. This marks the strongest response on company workforce growth since the third quarter of 2008.
* Second consecutive quarter of expected growth in revenues. The vast majority of companies expect their portfolio companies to perform better in the coming quarter. Sixty-three percent of companies predict moderately better growth among their portfolio companies and thirteen percent predict substantially better growth. The remaining twenty-five percent predict revenue will remain the same.
* Rising early-stage investments. Investors are looking at making more early bets. Forty-three percent of the companies expect new investments will be in seed-stage companies.
* Ongoing concerns regarding market conditions and economic recovery. Despite a steadily improving outlook, investors continue to worry about the potential for the overall economy to negatively impact their portfolio companies. Top challenges continue to be uncertain national business conditions and the slow pace of economic recovery, as they have for the past four quarters.
In summary; the current climate is one of cautious optimism. As the economy stabilizes, the venture capital companies are becoming more comfortable making near-term investments. It's probably too early to say the economy is on track, but the indicators in terms of hiring and revenue growth projections are going in the right direction.
In venture capital, it often comes down to people and innovative ideas and the chemistry between these two key points. While each experienced Nexus Ventures partner brings a unique set of skills, we share a common set of core values. These are the values we stir our company by. At Nexus Ventures we have a passion for technology and we believe in the power of a true team approach. And above all, a deep respect for the entrepreneur and the entrepreneurial process.
