Venture capitalists, who faded from the limelight after the bursting of the dot-com bubble, have been making a comeback with a global focus, says Bob Higgins, founder and managing general partner of Highland Capital Partners, a venture capital firm in Lexington, Mass., and a senior lecturer at the Harvard Business School.
