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%).
