Social Content, Internet Retail and Info Services Drive B2C Forward
October 08, 2012
While healthcare investment is dwindling, B2C venture capital activity has been on a roll during the last couple years. In both 2009 and 2010, the B2C industry accounted for just 13% of the VC deal flow, but then leapt to 16% last year. So far this year, B2C accounts for 20% of the total deals, a record level for the industry, according to the PitchBook Platform. Social Content, Internet Retail and Information Services are the major sub-sectors helping drive activity forward. As a whole, these three comprise close to half of the overall B2C deal activity in 2012.
