Podcast – Venture Capital: Short-Term Challenges, Long-Term Opportunities

WE Family Offices Managing Partner, Michael Zeuner, recently sat down with Senior Investment Manager, Matt Farrell, CAIA, to call upon the latter’s extensive knowledge in private markets for a special conversation on the alternative asset class’s venture capital arm and why it has experienced challenges in the current post-Covid world.

Some of the topics Zeuner and Farrell specifically address include:

  • The present state of the venture capital market and the factors behind it
  • WE’s current outlook of the venture capital landscape
  • When venture capital valuations may recover

Existing venture capital opportunities in 2023 and beyond.

Overall, Zeuner and Farrell emphasize that while the venture capital space has faced some struggles recently that may continue in the short-term, family offices can still gain valuable returns with the right strategy and opportunity . As always, if you have any questions about investing in venture capital or anything else discussed during this podcast, please do not hesitate to contact us.
