Welcome, VentureBeat!

Matt Marshall just launched VentureBeat an hour or so ago:

Welcome to VentureBeat — the successor to SiliconBeat!

VentureBeat’s mission is to provide news and information about private companies and the venture capital that fuels them. People are at the heart of this project. VentureBeat will be a resource for entrepreneurs and other interested professionals facing some the biggest decisions of their careers.

VentureBeat will focus initially on Silicon Valley, and gradually, when possible, expand to cover innovation hubs around the globe.

What’s interesting here is the fact that a project which “began as an experiment” two years ago — a blog covering the startup and venture world of “this fascinating place we call Silicon Valley” — has now turned into a startup of its own.

Good luck, Matt!

By the way, having lived here for over a year now I think I’m slowly starting to feel the itch, too…
