This edition of the European VC Valuations Report highlights trends in valuations across deal stages, sectors and regions for the first quarter of 2020. Pre-money valuations across the financing stages stayed robust in Q1 despite the emergence of COVID-19. However, because most VC deals were conducted prior to any market disruption, we expect valuations to fall in the coming quarters. Our analysts also delve into nontraditional investors' participation in VC, but predict their involvement may decline as these investor types focus on their primary strategies. In addition, unicorn value growth may slow as growth becomes more difficult in the current environment.
