En VentureBeat acaban de publicar una lista de las empresas de venture capital que en estos momentos no disponen de dinero para nuevas inversiones muy interesante para aquellos emprendedores interesados en buscar capital más allá de nuestras fronteras. La metodología empleada es claramente imperfecta, pero la colaboración de todos los lectores debería servir para que la lista de zombies se autocorrija
A couple weeks ago, Dan Primack of PE Hub blogged a list of venture capital firms he termed the “VC Walking Dead” — firms that by all indication appear to still be in business but lack the cash to bring new investments on board. This got us thinking. While Dan’s list included 14 firms, there had to be a lot more out there (...) We got two big lists from the National Venture Capital Association, one with firms that had successfully raised money in 2000 and 2001, and one with firms that had survived to raise funds between 2002 and the present. We compared them side by side, determining which firms had failed to rope further funding in the last eight years. Some of these firms may not exist anymore — they’re just dead. But a surprising number, many more than PE Hub indicated, have kept the lights on somehow. (...) There is one other caveat with this list. Due to some incomplete data for 2009, we might have come up with a few false positives. Please let us know if you find one and we’ll make a correction (...)
The walking dead are highlighted in yellow, and those unhighlighted were able to raise funds in subsequent years.
