Description: Intel Capital VP Lisa Lambert discusses a sea change in the investment community as of Spring, 2010. While VC's were formerly more attracted to solely investing in start-ups, she states that her firm has grown more stage-agnostic. Quick returns more often hinge on later-stage enterprises than on business concepts fresh out of the gate. In addition, she reports that Intel Capital has very few plans for acquisition of these firms, estimating that the company takes over less than one percent of those they financially back.
