Venture capital: Survival of the fittest?

Valuations have reset, global growth investors have retreated, and local VCs have reverted to earlier-stage deals. The environment is challenging, but not without opportunity; Australia’s leading start-ups may just need longer to grow into their valuations. Within the investor community, differentiation and distributions are key. Managers must demonstrate an ability to access top founders and technologies, and then find a route to liquidity. Experienced investors share their views on delivering value despite industry headwinds.

  • How are VCs dealing with problems in their portfolios?
  • What will be the main sources of liquidity in the next five years?
  • Are superannuation funds overlooking up-and-coming local managers?
  • Is artificial intelligence transforming investment theses?
