As highlighted in our 2Q 2015 U.S. Venture Industry Report, valuations and round sizes continue to grow, and thus, the fundraising potential for ever-larger VC funds continues to rise.
Backed by a solid start to VC fundraising in 2015, with $7.5 billion in commitments amassed across 48 vehicles, LP confidence in the asset class remains strong as momentum carries over from last year’s historic level of activity.
As an example, on April 15th, New Enterprise Associates closed its New Enterprise Associates 15 with $2.8 billion of capital commitments, surpassing Bessemer Venture Partners IX as the largest venture capital fund to close thus far in 2015.
