Venture capitalists surveyed by the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) believe cleantech is the sector most likely to show growth in 2010.
The NVCA questioned over 325 venture capitalists across the United States from 30 November to 8 December 2009. Of those surveyed, 54% believe VC investment in the cleantech sector would rise in 2010.
Other favorable sectors included the internet (46% predicting higher investment), media and entertainment (33%) and software (32%).
