Since the 1960’s venture capitalists have been investing in companies and have seen the economy go through a number of recessions and peaks. The experienced individuals give advice to today’s venture capital firms by saying “think small.” In the good old days, venture funds were $100 million at most. Many people who have been in the venture capital industry for decades feel that the industry has gotten too big and funds have gotten to big. In order to invest their enormous amounts of capital, venture capitalists end up choosing companies that are not sufficiently disciplined, capital-efficient or properly prepared to start or expand their company or expand.

The venture capital industry grew greatly in the 1990’s when pension funds started investing larges ums of money. When the internet bubble finally burst, investors in venture funds cut the amount of money they were investing.
