In a new piece, the New York City Times argues that a lot of VC investments are not great investments, and that a small subset of venture capital is actually terrible.
The article begins by noting that there are some VCs who do make money, but the majority of their funds are a failure, and they are doing this by paying people for services that don’t exist.
The piece then goes on to note that some of the companies that are actually successful are not those with a lot in the way of revenue, which makes it easier for investors to give money away.
In the case of a venture capital fund, the article says, “investors are mostly interested in how the money will help the company grow, rather than the product itself.”
The article then goes to point out that VC funds are often run by companies that have been in business for decades and have a long track record of raising lots of money.
That’s great, but VC funds don’t actually deliver on their promise to investors, and in the process, it leads to some very bad outcomes for the companies they fund.
The investment isn’t bad, the paper says, because the VC funds aren’t actually paying people, and the VC fund isn’t actually doing anything wrong.
They’re just taking money from people that don the business, which leads to problems.
The worst thing that can happen is that VCs are actually making money.
In this case, they’re actually doing bad things.
That was pretty good.
The bad thing, however, is that they’re not really investing in the company that is actually making the investment, which means the money that the VC has made is worthless.
They’ve got their hands on cash and that means the company is still struggling.
This is bad, bad, really bad.
The Times article does a nice job of describing what is happening, but unfortunately, it fails to do a good job of explaining why it’s a bad thing.
The real issue with the piece is that it doesn’t explain why a small percentage of VCs have made a lot more money than the rest of the fund, or why VCs should be spending a lot less money on their investments than they are.
What we should be saying is that the problem is not VCs, it’s that VC funding has been poorly managed.
As a result, we’re in for a long, painful transition.
It will take time, and we may not get there, but it’s going to be much, much harder to fix.
The New York State Attorney General, in an attempt to curb the proliferation of venture funds, is currently trying to make sure that investors get their money back.
But what we do need to do is stop funding the companies we’re funding and start focusing on companies that actually do good work, which will create jobs, grow the economy, and provide a decent living wage for everyone in New York.
That means we have to stop funding companies that we know have made some terrible decisions and start funding companies we know are doing a lot better, like Amazon, which is actually doing the exact opposite of what they’re saying they are trying to do.
