The Alternative to an Initial Public Offering

Wall Street’s Impact on the Venture Capital Landscape
The venture capital industry is undergoing a major change from its elitist past of restricting investor access to “friends of the firm only”. As Wall Street embraces dozens of new initial public offerings (IPOs) of venture backed companies, hopeful investors are flocking to this asset class. These Venture Capital investments continue to deliver positive returns at a better rate than public market indexes such as NASDAQ or S&P. The venture-backed technology sector led on trading volume with 44 companies going public last year.

It’s a New Game for Corporate R&D and Venture Capital
It would appear that US innovation has never been brighter. US corporations are spending in excess of $200 billion on R&D annually with the top expenditures coming from IBM, Intel, Microsoft, HP and Cisco accounting for over $20 Billion. This outdated internal development model has been eclipsed by the reality of venture capital backed start-ups that achieve far greater competitive advantage through rapid cycles of innovation and global distribution. IBM accounted for $6 Billion of R&D which ironically exceeded all of the annual venture capital industry’s investments made. The technology innovations and investment returns are obvious-- venture-backed technology companies have consistently exceeded every corporate R&D outcome.
