Most VC funds are no better than Russell 2000 index

The Kaufmann Foundation published an analysis of its VC investments. 65% of VC funds performed worse than their closest Public Market Equivalent (PME) - the Russell 2000 index (stock ticker - IWM)

The blind belief in the Risk vs Reward trade-off doesn't work. By taking more risks, foundations don't generate higher long-term returns.
