What's next for venture capital?

Interesting confab at the University of Virginia starting tomorrow. It's U.Va.'s 2nd annual "venture summit," this time starring former Va. Gov. Mark Warner, Baltimore VC pioneer Chuck Newhall of New Enterprise Associates and Robert Paull of Lux Capital.

Panelists also include leading venture capitalists A.G.W. "Jack" Biddle III of Novak Biddle Venture Partners, J. Sanford "Sandy" Miller of Institutional Venture Partners and Robert Paull of Lux Capital, as well as Frank Levinson, experienced entrepreneur and founder of Small World Group. A founding partner in the U.Va. Venture Summit, Chuck Newhall of New Enterprise Associates, who is regarded as one of the visionary creators of the U.S. venture capital industry, will also participate in the summit.

UVA is upping its game as a core and disseminator of entrepreneurial knowledge. Maryland universities: pay attention.
