Financial Crisis

This page is a collection of information related to the financial crisis on Wall Street and how it connects to the venture capital and start up industry. Most of these are articles that I found through RSS feeds which are listed on the RSS Feeds page. Understandably there isn't as much capital to be invested and startups would be the first to be effected because people will want to start taking less risks. These articles document the effects of the financial crisis and are mostly taken from the middle of October when the financial crisis was very prevalent in the news and are just a sampling.
