@charlesbeeler @VentureBeat @ahhensel @mmarshall All I'll chip in is that national media — which seems increasingly into covering this topic — should consider broadening source base usual suspects of Rise of the Rest, Drive Capital etc. There are more VCs to talk to w/ years of experience and exits here
Interesting thread here re: coastal VCs investing in Midwest startups + how national media covers topic via @charlesbeeler 
@mspbjReilly @dbrauer One quick clarification- It's 18 percent of the private-capital allocation that goes to VC, not 18 percent of the entire endowment.
@Kevin_McArdle Understood. One-off examples are just interesting to call out some times. Annual return figure for endowment (which is spread across many funds and asset classes) is in story.
Also, a reminder of just how stellar VC returns can be: U of M had a $125,000 commitment to Veeva Systems, and post-IPO got $25 million
