The first quarter of 2014 was a quarter of records for U.S. venture capital fundings. The record-setting 19 mega-rounds of $100 million or more in the first quarter helped push overall capital invested to $12.1 billion in 1Q 2014, also a new quarterly record. This came despite U.S. VC funding activity falling for the fourth straight quarter.
These are just a few of the data points and trends that PitchBook explores in its newly released 2Q 2014 U.S. Venture Industry Report. Powered by the PitchBook Platform, the report offers insight into the most recent trends in VC deal-making, valuations, exits and fundraising through data-driven analysis of venture capital activity in 1Q 2014, as well as over the last decade.
