Roundup of 2017 VC Predictions and Tech Industry Reports

2017 Predictions

“Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.”   Niels Bohr

Hope your 2017 is off to a great start. With more VCs blogging, it’s great to see the plethora of predictions being shared. Below is a selection of themes and predictions for startups/venture/tech in 2017. This doesn’t include the various lists of ‘hot startups to watch’ (where normally there’s a correlation between the startup and the recommending VC’s portfolio), but more general trends from VCs, sector specific predictions from other organizations, and 2016 annual industry reports.
