Are We In A Startup Bubble? featuring Lorraine Fox


Recently, Marc Andreessen took to Twitter to explain why he agrees with Bill Gurley’s statement that Silicon Valley is taking on too much risk when it comes to investing in startups. Gurley told the Wall Street Journal that the amount is “unprecedented since ‘99.” He was referring to the dotcom bubble, and Andreessen subsequently posted 18 consecutive tweets where he explained how new startup founders have only been in environments where money was easy to raise at higher valuations in the past decade. While neither Gurley nor Andreessen specifically said whether they thought there is a bubble in the current startup sector, Benzinga took a poll of 20 entrepreneurs and people who work closely with the startup space to get their opinion on the current state of things.
