Fascinating numbers on the reach and influence of Venture Capitalists and the companies they back:

"Venture-backed companies create 11 % of all private sector jobs . They generate annual revenues equivalent to an astounding 21% of GDP. Indeed, the dozen largest tech companies were all venture-backed. Together those 12 companies are worth more than $ 2 trillion, more than all other tech companies combined.

@SusanDay

It's mostly popular with people who think they can make a LOT of money off of someone quickly = tech companies promise big returns more quickly than other kinds of startups ... usually.
