While access to capital, cheap technology, and more have led to the proliferation of many new technology startups, the number of acquisitions has not kept up with the blistering pace. There are many debates as to why, but whatever the cause, the growing popularity of acqui-hires and relative reduction in corporate M&A could lead the startup ecosystem down an ominous path.
Last week I was interviewed by peHUB about this "liquidity crunch", who is to blame, and how it can be fixed. I personally believe that the current startup climate is a house of cards that will collapse if there isn't more corporate M&A.
What do you think? I would love to hear your comments below.
