Global Venture Capital Confidence Survey 2012DOWNLOAD
Venture capitalists from around the globe say that there are pockets of optimism in the current venture capital environment. Respondents demonstrated more enthusiasm for emerging geographies such as Brazil and newer IT sub-sectors including cloud computing and social media. However, despite increased optimism in these areas, the survey reveals that there remains room for considerable improvement in overall global venture capital confidence levels, particularly when it comes to externalities impacting the industry.
In the eight years since Deloitte’s Emerging Growth Company (EGC) Practice and the National Venture Capital Association launched the first Global Survey, this is the first time we sought to explicitly measure global VC confidence. From mid-April through mid-May of 2012, we surveyed 440 investors in the Americas, Europe, the United Kingdom, Asia Pacific and Israel.
This report was sponsored by Deloitte & Touche LLP and was conducted in association with the National Venture Capital Association in the United States and numerous other venture capital associations around the world. To learn more, read the full survey results report below.
