VC Trends

PitchBook has released their latest report showcasing what went on in the US venture capital industry during the third quarter of 2017. A couple of key takeaways:

  • As of the end of the third quarter, this year is set to reach a decade-high in terms of total VC investment—but deal activity is on pace to decline sharply for the second year in a row.
  • Software is the most popular industry for VC investors, a trend that’s remained unchanged as the years have gone by. Other industries are maintaining historical figures, too.
  • The West Coast has been home to the lion’s share of completed deals and deal value, followed by the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes New York. A visual summary and link to the full download is here:
