Midway through the year, it’s time to take stock of the current state of U.S. venture capital investment. Is it still trending downward, or are we entering a plateau? How much longer can the top tier of unicorns still rake in billions of dollars in outside financing?
PitchBook’s 2Q 2016 U.S. Venture Industry Report looks into all these questions, analyzing primary trends ranging from the potential Series A crunch to continued strong fundraising. The report also offers breakdowns of financings by sector, follow-on rates at the early stage, venture-backed exits and more. Sponsored by Deloitte’s Emerging Company Growth Practice and City National Bank, this latest installment of the U.S. Venture Industry Report series serves as an objective source of data and analysis to enrich your assessment of VC trends.
Report Highlights Include:
- A breakdown of VC invested by what percentage went to unicorns, illustrating how continued strong totals in VC raised are skewed massively by their success
- A Q&A with Robin Gill, New York market manager of technology banking at City National Bank, on what he’s seeing in the NYC venture scene
- 2Q 2016 league tables of most active investors
- VC-backed exits and overall fundraising, with the latter’s continued strength illustrating how much limited partners are willing to commit to maintain exposure to the asset class
