US Venture Capital Outlook

December 18, 2023

Seven predictions for US VC in 2024 

PitchBook analysts see moderate improvements on the horizon for the US VC ecosystem on the back of economic strength and signals of easing rates. Dive into our US Venture Capital Outlook to discover why. 

  • Based on PitchBook fund distribution data, venture fundraising is expected to increase slightly over 2023, yet continue to fall short of recent years. 

  • Startups' existing investors will maintain their amped-up role in leading deals. We expect outsiders to offer some relief as nontraditional investors reenter the asset class. 

  • The number of unicorn companies and their collective valuation is set to decline as more are forced to raise capital.
