Private Equity & Venture Capital Blogs

Along the lines of my last post, heres a compilation of some top blogs that are related to Private Equity, Venture Capital, and Entrepreneurship that I check out and highly recommend:

  • Venture Hacks - An excellent blog for the non-networked entrepreneur. Started by Naval and Nivi, both of whom have some entrepreneurial experience and know things from both perspectives

  • StartUpBoy - by Naval Ravikant. Its title says Truth in Startups, and a whole lot less. I couldnt agree more.

  • NiviBlog - Nivi writes about everything - management, vc, entrepreneurship, life etc.

  • VC Circle - a blog on VC investments in India

I'll keep updating more blogs to this list as I come across more blogs that I like.

Hi, this is Nivi from Venture Hacks. Thanks for the kind words!

We've got a Cheat Sheet of all our hacks here: http://www.venturehacks.com/term-sheet-hacks/

A lot of time is spent on the alpha versus beta debate but little consideration is given to another equally important but often ignored greek letter - rho or the sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Some San Diego business investors fund strategies have negative rho, that is depend on interest rates staying low. Ironically pension funds have positive rho as rising rates permit them to use a higher number to discount future liabilities. That can be a pyrrhic victory because on the asset side of the balance sheet their portfolios of stocks and bonds tend to fall in such times. It therefore makes sense for investors to diversify with OTHER strategies that tend to perform well in a RISING interest rate environment.

Impressive work - you have a brilliant blog here. Don't miss visiting this site http://www.smccapitals.com/merger-acquisition-private-equity.aspx about Venture Capital Private Equity It's all there: Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds, Investment Planning.
