This is the audio track of a video interview: https://youtu.be/kSukV8PUrk4


In this interview, we talk to Yoram Wijngaarde (https://www.linkedin.com/in/yoramdw/), founder of the data platform Dealroom.co (https://blog.dealroom.co/). He is a former employee of Lehmann Brothers New York (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lehman_Brothers), and during the interview, we talk about his experience of the collapse from the inside.  After some stops in investment banking in New York, he went on to become employee No 2 of Noah Advisors, a boutique for startups in Berlin. During all of his work, he bumped into problems finding good data on the valuation of startups in Europe. Data for startups from the UK and US is easy to come by, but continental Europe was still a problem. He then set out to solve this problem with the founding of Dealroom.co. 


During the interview Yoram and Joe talk about:

“Germany is more restraint – conservative – with publishing [Venture Capital] numbers” 


“Where venture capital ends and private equity begins or public markets begin, these lines are really blurring … this is what we are seeing and this is why the rounds get larger and larger”


“Are we in a bubble? Well, only time will tell … the market is still disciplined, with some exceptions … but we don’t see DotCom-Bubble Craze”
