There is no “Series B crunch.” Not by any meaningful definition, anyway.
If what you mean by “crunch” is more Series B-worthy companies going unfunded because of a diminishing number of financings and opportunities, then no, we are not seeing a Series B crunch. Instead, we’re seeing a normal supply and demand issue play out that historically has resulted in about half of Series A companies becoming Series B companies. The Series B landscape actually looks very healthy right now for startups, by several metrics.
The investigation is part of our first foray into magazine-style content. Our new report series, the Venture Capital Monthly, is an online publication that will highlight a specific topic that's being actively discussed in the VC community, as well as some of our more popular blog posts and datagraphics. We'll be publishing the report every month, except for the first month of each quarter, when we release our Venture Industry Report and VC Valuations and Trends Report.
