The economy may be having a rough time and total venture capital investment may be down, but deals are still getting done. Here’s where some of the industry professionals intend to make investments in 2008:
- Diverse/alternative energy sources beyond biotech and solar
- Personalized medicine at the molecular level
- Medical device advancement
- Pharma firms seeking alternative uses for proven drugs
VC investments result in new products and services being brought to market and the businesses that launch these new products and services will need ad campaigns to generate demand. Are there any businesses in your market area that have recently received venture capital funding?
