Investment Arenas of 2010

Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

Randy Komisar, a partner with VC firm KPCB, opines on the most recent trends for investment as of Spring of 2010. He points out that the consumer internet is a difficult business to gauge, and gives that sector a yellow light. However, he gives a green light to green and sustainable ventures, noting that they have the potential to build a tremendous asset in legacy businesses. Komisar is also a fan of substantial and "unsexy" tools for consumers, such as patents and home equity protection applications, as they, too, are a large growth area currently attractive to the VC set.
