An Experienced Approach to Venture Funding

Venture Capitalists Prefer Large Established Markets!

Many entrepreneurs only focus on bleeding-edge, burgeoning markets when developing their company’s technology, product or service offering. This is done for several reasons, including:
• Burgeoning markets have limited competition,
• Ability to establish an early foot-hold to increase the perceived “value” of their company, and the
• Difficulty in developing a differentiated, long-term competitive advantage in an established market.

I recently published this article on http://www.ezinearticles.com . It outlines why this burgeoning market approach may be too risky for many venture capitalists and then provides five reasons why venture capitalists prefer large established markets over bleeding-edge technology markets.
