Additional Details: The U.S. venture capital industry finished strong in 2017 with the highest annual amount of capital deployed ($84 billion) to the entrepreneurial ecosystem since the dot-com era. This acceleration of activity is in response to the evolving nature of the VC industry, whereby VC-backed companies stay private longer and command larger deal sizes. During the webinar, panelists will discuss this evolution and review key trends uncovered in the latest PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor, including deals, exits, fundraising, unicorn activity, venture credit and startup financials. During and after the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to all represented parties.
