SDForum's Quarterly Venture Breakfast with PricewaterhouseCoopers and Pillsbury Winthrop: The Consumer Internet
For many years, VCs shied away from consumer deals...too hard to predict consumer whims...big marketing budgets usually required...hard to build a brand. With the wild success of some consumer plays (e.g. Amazon, eBay, Google), now many VCs do consumer plays and some even focus on them. Now there are thousands of consumer plays, angling for a bigger share of eyeballs, wallets, and advertising revenues. Are there still big consumer plays or is the field already saturated? Who will be the winners and losers? Come hear our panelists answer these questions and more as they discuss the consumer landscape and how they expect their companies and others to navigate it.
