Venture capital investors need a vehicle for discovering breakthrough technologies in the telecom landscape. They have a mission to fund startups that will improve the ability of carriers to deliver services. Buoyed by the opening of the IPO window, acquisitions and innovative services by entrepreneurs, the venture industry in 2007 had its biggest investment year since 2001. Will the dollars continue to flow to start-ups in 2008? If so, where? Listen as our panel of leading VCs gives its views of the industry and where it is headed.
