Too Much Money Chasing a Market

A phenomenon in the technology startup community I hadn’t read about until recently is that of too much money chasing a market resulting in lower than expected investor returns. Bill Gurley reiterated this recently in his recent talk at the AlwaysOn conference. Of course, supply and demand in any market should work itself out over time.

My advice to entrepreneurs is to evaluate this potential in their market as part of determining their growth prospects as well as evaluating raising money from investors.
