March 31, 2015
Our recently published 1H 2015 VC Valuations & Trends Report offers insight into a decade of VC valuations, financings and series terms in the U.S. Powered by the PitchBook Platform, which tracks over 20,000 valuations of VC-backed companies, this report explores trends in venture valuations across sectors, series and more.
Venture valuations are increasing and capital invested in venture rounds is up, but the number of venture rounds has continued to fall.
Valuations have been increasing not just at the median but across the entire distribution of valuations.
This continued growth in valuations across all stages has led to a decrease in companies taking down and flat rounds.
San Francisco Bay Area companies currently have the highest median valuation, although Los Angeles and Seattle startups are catching up at the early and late stages, respectively.
Venture rounds that include corporate venture investors have significantly higher valuations than rounds without corporate VCs.
