A visual summary of global VC activity in 1Q 2015

By PitchBook
April 1, 2015

The VC “bubble” continues to expand. The global median pre-money valuation increased for the eighth straight quarter in 1Q 2015, reaching $28 million (compared to $15.2 million in the same quarter last year). The median size of VC funds in the first quarter ($63.5 million) tripled from 1Q 2014 ($20.4 million), with four vehicles closing on at least $500 million. But not everything is on the rise. VC deal flow decreased for the second straight quarter in 1Q, as did exit flow and the amount of capital exited via acquisition, IPO and PE buyout. For a visual breakdown of all things VC in 2015’s first quarter, explore the datagraphic below.
