Looking for VC Cash? Go Global

According to the Deloitte and NVCA 2005 Global Venture Capital Survey, VCs are increasingly looking outside their borders when making investments.

What this non-intuitive exhibit shows is that US VCs will be boosting non-US investments signficantly, most heavily within China and India, while non-US VCs will be increasing their investments in the US. So it seems the US is going to see no shortage in VC money anytime soon. But one of the keys to tapping into this money will be having a global business strategy in place. And a global Web site certainly couldn’t hurt either. Web globalization is often viewed as something only large multinationals invest in; but I believe that start-ups stand to benefit the most from Web globalization.
