PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor
April 4, 2017
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.

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.
