Canadian venture capital must stand on its own

My latest Canadian Business Online columnwas posted yesterday, looking at why the Canadian venture capital industry may want to stop comparing itself to the U.S. In short, with the U.S. industry entering a necessary and healthy period of adjustment that could see it a fair bit smaller in just a few years, trying to argue that the Canadian venture capital ought to be as large won’t hold much water. There are lots of good reasons why things need to change to encourage more venture capital in Canada, but the arguments should stand on their own.
(By the way, if you’re wondering why I write both columns online and a blog, well, I’m told that in the coming weeks the two things will become onejust a blog, found right here, I thinkand this duplication will disappear.)
