After the high-flying years of 2014 and 2015, the US venture industry saw declines throughout much of 2016. Investments and exits, especially, had a difficult time as investors pulled back their pace of dealmaking and worldwide markets were clouded with uncertainties. But when you step back and look at the big picture, VC remained remarkably healthy when compared to the past decade. Fundraising had a record year, and valuations continued their climb. So how did 1Q 2017 shape up? Did dealmaking finally make a rebound?
The 1Q 2017 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor delves into last quarter's datasets, analyzes what happened and benchmarks it against different times during the past decade to find how the industry responded to the less-than-ideal 2016.
Featured datasets include:
- Venture investment broken down by stages, investor type and sector
- Exits by type, size and sector
- Fundraising by size and time needed to close
- Deal flow by US region, metro areas and congressional district
