Takatkah: The Next Big Thing in VC

Today’s VC Post of the Day is from Ahmed Takatkah, a VC in Jordan titled The Next Big Thing in VC. He starts with a question and the answer he often gets.

“What’s the next big thing in VC?” Whenever I see a VC from the states or even from the region, I ask this question, but none of them gave me a satisfying answer. I will share my answer here and hope that this will stimulate others to comment with different point of view.”

He starts by explaining what he thinks has been happening: Faster Exits, Active Private Capital Markets, The Rise of Accelerators, and Changes in the VC Model and then goes on to predict (and explain) a few new ideas of what might happen: Elevators, Carry Options for Entrepreneurs, Capture Capital, and Cafe Startups.

It’s good stuff and worth reading if you wonder what “the next big thing is VC” is.
