2009 put startup valuations on a diet, bootstrapping and revenue models were back in the spotlight; and Angel investors made a comeback.

Despite the fears and outcries from some, startup funding didn’t quite freeze into the nuclear winter many thought it would... To many founders’ relief, startups were still getting funded. But the weakened economy did serve as a crucial “intervention” moment for a tech ecosystem that before that had been living large with dreams of $1B exits for everyone.

In this Strategy Series, hear from VCs and Angel as we discuss what 2010’s startup financing forecast:

* Is investing back in an upswing yet? If so, what trends are VCs betting on?

* What milestones must be met by startups seeking funding next year to ensure investors take them seriously?

* With the resurgence of angel investment and smaller financing rounds rounds – are VCs still players?

* What will the new fundable trends be: Healthcare 2.0? Green tech? Or are mobile and cloud computing still “in” for 2010?
