2019 on pace for another $100B invested as VC exit value tops $200B for the first time [datagraphic]

The year is winding to a close and 2019 has already seen north of $200 billion in exit value. Check out this datagraphic highlighting key trends from the 3Q 2019 Venture Monitor.

With one quarter to go in 2019, deal value is set to surpass $100 billion for the second year straight. Mega-deals continue to flow unabated, with 185 already completed this year. While another year of such capital largesse may seem de rigeur by now, 2019 exits represent a new high: Annual exit value has exceeded $200 billion for the first time this decade. Despite their lumpiness, liquidity events for VC have ranged from outsized to more frequent than normal, with well over two-thirds of the year’s exits sized at $100 million or more. Liquidity seems to be finally coming in tandem with massive investment flows in 2019.
