Is there a “right model” for venture capital investing? If so, is that model the one practiced in Silicon Valley? This question has been the topic of almost endless debate, academic research and even some best-selling books. Given the complexity of innovation ecosystems, there is plenty of scope for story-telling, intrigue and human interest in this great venture capital puzzle.
A more clinical assessment of the situation using a high-quality data-set gets to an answer rather faster. The idea of a “secret formula” will no doubt prove enduring, but for those more interested in empirical evidence, the reality is somewhat more prosaic.
