Many lawmakers are eager to regain control of the tech giants of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google.
But some of their ideas can really hurt the small companies they are looking for. Beginner capitalists warn CNBC.
The VCs are particularly concerned with efforts to limit integration and congressional hearings in Congress. Some of these proposals work by transferring the verification burden on merger matters to those organizations to demonstrate their agreement.

In fact, investment capitalists and the groups that represent them want to find a relatively easy way to release their investments. A business group representing VCs, the National Venture Capital Association, counts a number of Big Tech companies among its members. (Comcast, owner of CNBC parent company NBCUniversal, is also a member.)
But their concern is that the changes to the distrust law will have far-reaching implications for larger companies, and that smaller players will have to make adjustments.
Why buy startups?
When novice capitalists invest in startups, their goal is to make a large return on their investment. Although most startups fail, a small number of VCs are on a small scale to convince the rest of their investment.
Exit can be found in one of two ways: by getting it or by going public. When any of these events occur, investors can recover at least some of the money, and in good condition reap the major windfall.
According to the NVCA, there are ten times as many startups as there are official launches. According to sales capitalists, this figure shows the importance of clarifying the merger.
The top five technology companies are not the only ones looking for technology deals. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft Since 2010, it has accounted for about 4.5% of all technology discounts in the United States.
Examples of companies that sell before reformists have the opportunity to become independent competitors for companies, such as Instagram, point to some purchases. But VCs often say that this is not the case.
“They all think they could one day be state-owned companies, but they are real. For most of these companies, it is unlikely that they will be able to survive and thrive in the public market from today,” said Michael Brown, general manager. Battery Venture.
While going public is often the goal, VCs say it is not practical for beginners for a variety of reasons.
First, some startups may not have a long-term product or service as an independent business. That doesn’t mean their technology or talents are worthless, but they can be very successful in big business.
Kate Mitchell, co-founder and partner of Scale Venture Partners, set an example for Pavelion Technologies, a company that manufactures and forecasting technology for Rockwell Automation in 2007.
“That is a company that has not been able to escape the pace,” she says of Pavilion. Since they were sold worldwide, we did not know how to sell them at the expense of technology.
It was still a useful technology, but it says it needs the infrastructure of a large business to accelerate further. After he received it from Rockwell, it was included in the supply, and many workers stayed for years.
Sometimes, she says, getting it before the bankruptcy is the last resort, and at least it helps investors get back some of the money.
It is better to sell it for 80 cents a dollar than to lose it.
It can also be difficult to make public. The IPO process is expensive and, according to VCs, small cap companies often struggle in the public market due to the lack of analysts’ coverage of such businesses.
Strict merger restrictions on large companies can “change the calculus” for starters, said Clap Musk, co-founder and general manager of the funded email marketing and sales platform Cape. But the transition is not between getting and getting and going public. Instead, he said, it could make creators think more so that they can never raise money.
“With capital behind you, you can think and act differently,” he said, adding that entrepreneurs could pose a greater risk with that support.
Loss of investment and innovation
Many VCs told CNBC that they were concerned about the impact of merger restrictions on large enterprises on the overall job creation ecosystem.
Their fear is that if companies no longer have viable solutions, institutional investors who support VCs such as endowments and pensions will divert their funds. VCs, in turn, have less money to release to entrepreneurs who may see little reason to reduce the risk of starting a new company.
The last concern, they say, is a lack of creativity. They are rightly hoping lawmakers will rise to the challenge of merger with big buyers.
Patricia Nachach, general partner of Trinity Ventures, said: “If you limit the number of exciting prizes and income from investment, entrepreneurs can get more out of their time.”
According to Naka ache, restricting the procurement of large technology companies could discourage entrepreneurs from building companies that compete with their core businesses. Because many employers would like to make a backup plan if they can’t go public. More and more uncertain about whether big technology companies can be buyers, she says, they may want to build businesses other than the big ones.
The VCs also warned that if there are no big players in the mix, sales prices for beginners will be significantly reduced.
But outside the industry, some believe that these concerns will not be as bad as VCCs fear.
“If these rules work as intended, you will generally have a more competitive market, so there will be more potential buyers,” said Michael Kades, director of Washington’s non-profit marketing and competition policy. “If I were on VC today, I would find it. Your concern is what the next two years or what your company will get, but the increase in the number of potential buyers for companies … is still a very rich market for such purchases, not just for major companies.”
Bascar Characterti, dean of international business at Tufts University’s Fletcher School, said private capitalists may be able to slide in new merger limits, but entrepreneurs are still starting to innovate.
“Eventually, people are going to get used to it. Yes, some estimates, some bids can be a hindrance. Some purchases can go by ten, less than 20%,” he said. “But in the end, I don’t think it makes much difference because entrepreneurs follow ideas, build them, try to form teams, and it requires a place that requires money to invest.
Although big companies can’t bid on them or have a hard time finalizing the deal, they still agree that good ideas will still make money. “Limiting mergers with those companies is an attempt to limit anti-competitive premiums,” he said.
VCs also fear that the new rules could speed up partner investment outside the United States.
According to Michel, other countries, including Canada, are encouraging entrepreneurs to stay within their borders, but they are being ignored by the United States.
“We only made it difficult when everyone was trying to be attractive,” he said.
According to NVCA, the United States’ share of global capital has fallen from 84 percent to 52 percent over the past 15 years. That’s why lawmakers should not rest on their laurels of US partnership capital with new difficult provisions, VCs.
But Chakravorti has many alternative options, and merger laws are pushing for investment outside the United States.
There are very few alternatives, he said. Exits from China were heavily searched, and Europe was known for its harsh approach to trade regulations.
Still, when it comes to investing in strong merger laws, it is important to consider a broader network of buyers. That could involve more world rulers than he thought.
According to Nachch, reforms need to be made, and she may be considering investing more in the future without potential legislation. For example, if corporate platforms such as Vendor Force or Oracle do not meet the standards for strong integration, VCs can be converted from software to services such as search and social media.
It is open to some improvements
Some VCs interviewed by CNBC felt that existing antitrust laws were sufficient, while others acknowledged that non-merger amendments could be useful.
Nacach points out that the use of the information they gather to compete with companies that rely on forums is an example of how to improve the playing field if the restrictions are properly implemented.
Michel said the most helpful change would be to create more consistency in the implementation of anti-religious laws, especially from one administration to the next.
Cap’s general manager said he did not oppose congressional big-tech measures, but said most employers were “ecologically good”.
He said those big tech companies are helping to drive the overall multi-sectoral speed. “And I think they’re going to fall apart in some kind of extremist way, and I’m not sure it’s a big deal.”
