The 1Q 2019 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor recaps trends that shaped a quarter following a banner year for venture capital activity in the US. Our analysts find that with $32.6 billion invested, 2019 is on pace to rival the high-water mark set in 2018. As of 1Q, VC valuations remain at unprecedented levels, a
slew of outlier IPOs seem likely to bolster exit value, and despite a dip in a fundraising activity, our analysts believe levels will accelerate throughout the year. This edition of Venture Monitor also spotlights developments in mobility tech and includes highly sought-after data on female founders.
This report features content from our sponsors Silicon Valley Bank, Perkins Coie and Solium, touching on subjects such as how life sciences accelerators drive innovation and solutions to common cap-table pitfalls.
