  • The State of VC – Q1 2020

    Posted by Aram on June 30, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Pitchbook and the US NVCA have recently published their latest Venture Monitor report.

    It’s the first such report posted after the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, its impact is fully visible because most deals were already underway when the health crisis started.

    We will post an update when the Q2 2020 report is out.

    In the meantime, here are noticeable trends in this analysis:

    – There is a lot of dry powder, i.e., money that needs to be invested, in Venture Capital (over $100 billion)

    – Cash deployed mostly went to portfolio companies, and new deals tended to favor startups with resilient or counter-cyclical business models

    – Valuations are bound to move down in coming months

    – The IPO market has vanished, and M&A deals may follow suit before they rebound to take advantage of market opportunities

    Speaking Head What are the major trends you are observing at the moment?
