The New Face Of Venture Capital,

check out this slideshow. A fascinating insight into venture capital:
overview - Based on Morgan Stanleys study over a 22 year period on every single technology IPO in North America, only 1 in 20 startups made it to an IPO and only one in 20 of those companies created shareholder value afterwards, making the overall success rate 0.25% or 1 in 400!

change needs to be an intrinsic part of Startups - Think big, start small and be agile in response to market reaction!

VC's have started moving up the ladder and less receptive to early stage and pre-revenue propositions preferring de-risking of investment to potential ROI.

If you fail try to make it as early and cheap as possible.
