As Startups Go Big, Two VCs Wind Down

[Editor’s note: To tap the wisdom of our distinguished group of Xconomists, we asked a few of them to answer this question heading into 2013: “What does your gut tell you will happen next year even though you don’t have data to prove it?"]

A dichotomy: At least two more of Boston’s startups make big exits to either public markets or M&A, and at the same time two well-known VCs will announce they are winding down (read: can’t raise another fund). We’re seeing a big shift in how the investment landscape is working, but it’s not slowing down the ability for the right startups to go big.
