Susan Woodward discusses the venture capital funnel (as seen from the VentureSource database with additional research on failed companies from Sand Hill Econometrics) and analyzes the extent of stale pricing in venture values (and buyout fund values) in reports to investors. Did FAS 157, effective 2008, make any difference? Not much, as Susan explains. Reported values are still quite stale.
