VC Valuations Report

August 19, 2019

Skyrocketing valuations have been a persistent theme in VC throughout the past decade, but valuation growth cooled across the board in the first half of 2019. Startups are still expanding rapidly, however, with the median early-stage valuation step-up surpassing 2.0x in 2019 for the first time in at least a decade. Importantly, these lofty valuations have largely been maintained at exit, with 2019 setting a new decade high for exit value at just the midway point in the year.
