The Worst IPO Year on Record?

July 2, 2008

This year is shaping up to be the worst year for initial public offerings in perhaps 20 years.

In the second quarter of 2008, there were no venture-backed IPOs. Zero. Nada. Nothing.

I spoke to a bunch of big investors, venture capitalists, investment bankers and limited partners who invest in VC funds to find out what’s going on. Check out my story here that ran on BusinessWeek online.

In addition, I shot a video with DCM co-founder Dixon Doll and National Venture Capital Association President Mark Heesen. Check it out here.
