Quotes

"Valuations are where willing buyer meets willing seller," he says. "Today, there's a lot more supply [with] private equity getting in and the public market investing in the late stage. Venture capital investors are looking for multiples of their money. If a public investor sees 30 per cent return he’s happy with that. Expectation of those returns means more supply of capital, and prices are going to go up."
"SocketPlane will use capital from LightSpeed Ventures to develop their open source networking stack. "I am thrilled to be working with SocketPlane,” notes John Vrionis of Lightspeed. “It’s a rare opportunity to be the first investor in a company with world class founders who are building disruptive technology in a massive market that is experiencing major transition.""
...It’s a very dynamic, fast-paced game," Peter Nieh, a venture capitalist at Lightspeed Venture Partners, tells Business Insider. "Players are called on to use a bunch of skills at once, just like our companies have to have a number..."
...companies at an executive level, but this gives us another forum to spend time with other people at the companies and get to know them," Nieh said. " I don’t go to ultimate to network; it’s just something that happens naturally as you’re hanging out with these people all the time."
