ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline in returns on venture capital (VC) investments during the second quarter of 2008. However, returns still beat the one-year 11.1 percent decline for the Nasdaq and the 13.8 percent decline in the Standard & Poor's 500. In addition, venture capital demonstrated positive returns across all kinds of funds. Mark Heesen of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) says the upcoming performance reports would reflect the global credit crisis, as well as the near lockdown in the initial public offering markets.
