Rosen’s outlook

Look for a resurgence of small business ventures that shoot for $5 million to $10 million sales, and fewer venture capital-backed startups aiming for bigger scale and quicker liquidity, Seattle investor Dan Rosen said at FiRe today.

Until three weeks ago Rosen was general partner at Frazier Technology Ventures. Before that he was a manager at Microsoft and AT&T.

Now an independent angel investor, he’s focusing on wireless projects, including several working on provisioning, customer support “and things that enable new categories of applications, not necessary the applications themselves,” he said.

He’s also interested in projects “that make the so-called Web 2.0 more efficient.”
