Fenwick & West corporate partner Barry Kramer was extensively quoted in a VentureBeat story featuring the Venture Capital Survey. The Venture Capital Survey, co-authored by Kramer and partner Michael Patrick, highlights Silicon Valley venture financing trends for the first quarter of 2014.

The article supports the survey’s findings with coverage by New York Times reporters Jeff Sommer and Farhad Manjoo that describes current tech valuations as much less unstable than during the dot-com bubble of 2000. 

“People still remember and learn from the dot-com era,” added Kramer. “Those memories will keep the market players from getting too crazy.”
