According to Fortune, well-known NY venture capitalist Fred Wilson has not done a single deal in 2012. His firm, Union Square Ventures has invested more money this year since its founding in 2004, but Wilson has not personally led any of the deals. He generally invests in two to three companies a year. He’s not the only one who has refrained this year. Roelef Botha of Sequoia Capital hasn’t led any Series A funding in 2012. Wilson hasn’t given any reasons for abstaining other than that he hasn’t found the right opportunity.
