Note: This is an older edition from this report series. Here is a link to the most recent edition of the PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor.
Total VC deal value has reached $96.7 billion through the first three quarters of 2019, which puts the year on pace to be the second highest in terms of venture capital investment behind last year’s record totals. Despite some high-profile hiccups in the exit market, total exit value for 2019 is already at an all-time high of more than $200 billion with a quarter still to go. Fewer VC funds are being closed, but 15 mega-funds have been raised YTD and more are on the horizon, laying the foundation for strong VC activity in the coming quarters.
This edition of the PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor was sponsored by SVB, Perkins Coie and Shareworks.
