A PodTech.net conversation with Heidi Roizen about Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs, and the climate in the venture business. Roizen is a seasoned entrepreneur and now venture capitalist talks about the previous years of nuclear winter and the renewed energy taking place in the Valley.
"Seeing a lot of life come back to the market after the nuclear winter. Seeing more activity … entrepreneurs are starting companies again, customers are buying, revenues are going up."
"Expenses are under control, business models make financial success — all those old fashion things are back again, and valuations are going up."
“The Internet is changing the venture investment dynamic. Companies can be global from the very beginning from talent to customers. Silicon Valley has the continuing role to play as being the epicenter. The resources, capital, knowledge, and support teams are here in Silicon Valley to make things happen.”
