Spring 2023

The State of VC in 2023

As 2023 unfolds, Venture Capital is experiencing some turmoil, real and predicted. In their scramble to invest in new technologies that would help us live a touch-free life, some say, an irrational exuberance of sorts took hold. “Too much dry powder!” they yell, or “DPIs are too low!” they lament. “Where was the due diligence?”, others cry. That, coupled with a banking crisis whose first casualty was the revered Silicon Valley Bank, has led 2023 off to an uncomfortable start.

Regarding 2023 VC, yes, there are many Cassandras out there, predicting doom & gloom, or at least a very uncomfortable year. But there are those who see Phoenix eggs in the ash heaps, though they agree ash heaps will be collecting.

The Spring 2023 issue surveys the landscape. We have chosen a handful of articles, some more bullish, some more ursine, that take a closer look at what’s actually happening out there.
