I have to say, I’m puzzled by the JP Morgan Digital Media Growth Fund. I’ll admit, I don’t know anything aside from what I read in the news. But three things stand out. 1. They are playing in arguably the frothiest part of the market, where valuations are really very high. 2. I don’t see where JP Morgan has real information or relationship advantages vs firms that have done these kinds of deals for a living for a long time – insight, KPCB, Sequoia, etc. So I presume they’ll just pay more in later rounds. 3. I read that JP Morgan doesn’t have any significant skin in the game. Three things that, If true, bode pretty badly for this fund.
