University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business Releases Insightful “Batten Briefing – Whatever Happened to Venture Capital?”

Examination of State of the Venture Capital Space by Sean Carr, Malgorzata Glinska and Andrew King, of Darden’s Batten Institute Now Available on Darden Website

WHO: Sean Carr, Director of Intellectual Capital at the Batten Institute at UVA’s Darden School of Business and an expert in business strategy and innovation and entrepreneurship, leads the Batten team in examining the current state of the Venture Capital sector. Author of books, including “The Panic of 1907: Lessons Learned from the Market’s Perfect Storm”, Carr’s applied research in organic growth, corporate venturing and finance has advanced knowledge and understanding of entrepreneurship and business management.

WHAT: In “Whatever Happened to Venture Capital,”  Sean Carr and co-authors Malgorzata Glinska and Andrew King explore why, in a departure from historic norms, venture capital returns have turned negative. Drawing from personal interviews with founders of the most successful venture capital firms in the world such as Amgen, Bryan & Edwards, and J.H. Whitney and Co., among many others, the three colleagues have infused the briefing with their own insights as well as those from other leading academics and industry observers. The briefing, What Ever Happened to Venture Capital? is now available on the Darden School of Business website.

Carr will also be sharing his expertise at the University of Virginia Venture Summit today, March 3rd, with a presentation titled “Venture Capital’s Sputnik Moment.” The University of Virginia community is a nationally prominent generator of new technology-based ventures, and during the Summit leading UVA faculty and researchers will share views with outside partners such as venture capitalists and alumni from top investment firms across the nation in a dialog  furthering the ideas of entrepreneurship and innovation.
