Venture capital investments continue to grow

While some technology companies in Colorado and elsewhere have experienced widely publicized struggles, including massive enterprises like Uber and WeWork, venture capital firms are still looking for more options for potential investment. Indeed, these firms are looking for bigger investments that could power additional funding for interesting start-ups.

One major firm known for early investments in tech juggernauts like Amazon and Google is looking for $700 million in investor funds to support a series of new projects. According to data providers, venture capital firms now take around three years to raise new funds, compared to four years to complete a cycle seven years ago.

Non-traditional companies have entered the market for start-up investment, such as the Vision Fund created by SoftBank in Japan. Venture capital firms typically back projects at an early stage, long before the companies are ready to go public.

When WeWork's IPO fell apart and Uber's underperformed, some believed that venture capital investments may slow down or that venture funds may be less compelling for investors. However, the race to find promising start-ups does not appear to have slowed down, experts say. Venture firms have looked to raise significant amounts quickly, which they say will give them more time to make good decisions about which tech firms show high potential for concentrated growth.

After the Uber and WeWork problems, some companies may look to delay their IPOs until they can be more readily assured of raising the amount they need. Promising start-ups may receive additional support to help them shape their structures to provide greater appeal and profitability in the public markets.

Many business owners may look for investment from venture capital firms or angel investors to propel their vision forward. A business law attorney may help business owners to find seed capital and negotiate agreements with investors.
