Today's Wall Street Journal highlights new data on IPOS and venture capital
in 2008. If you have been tuned out of this world for more than a year than you will be astounded by the statistics. 2008 saw the IPO market basically run dry and 2009 is not looking good. But while National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) data showed declines, they were nothing compared to IPOS, showing a monetary decline of 8 percent and a 4 percent decline in the number of companies funded. The decline of the IPO market has been covered by many others including on another Kauffman blog, Growthology
, for those looking to explor this more.
