The Outlook for Venture-Backed IPOs

Quick CNBC clip from earlier today on the outlook for venture-backed IPOs in 2007. You know my view, but it’s still nice to see other people catching up …

As an aside, my friend Dylan at CNBC is not quite right in the above clip in saying that owning IPOs at the offering has been the only way to make money on the things. Matter of fact, you have made more money recently on U.S. IPOs via aftermarket performance than via buying them on the offering for the first-day pop.
