The State Of U.S. Venture Valuations And Other Notable Trends –  Charts by PitchBook

How have venture valuations shifted in response to the downturn in activity?

Our recently released VC Valuations & Trends Report examines multiple datasets of U.S. venture valuations in order to assess both the historic, recent ramp-up in the industry as well as the effects of the recent shift downward in activity.

Knowing not everyone has time to read through a packed 20-page report, we pulled 10 of the top charts featured in the report for a visual summary. To get free access to the full report, click here.

Median early-stage pre-money venture valuations ($M) by year in U.S.

Only Series B valuations have seen a slide, albeit modest.

Venture Valuations

Median late-stage pre-money valuations ($M) by year in U.S.

A surge that apparently continues unabated into 2016.

Venture Valuations

Median Series A pre-money valuations ($M) by sector

The crop of startups vying for Series A dollars has exploded, and venture valuations have remained more than healthy.

Venture Valuations

Median Nasdaq price vs. median U.S. Series D+ valuation by year

The only companies still even raising at Series D and later are the ones that enjoy the most investor confidence.

Venture Valuations

Median % acquired by series and year in U.S.

Investors have used the reset in order to shift terms already, particularly at the late stage.

Venture Valuations

Average age of U.S. VC-backed startups

It’s no secret that companies have been staying private for longer and longer for a variety of reasons.

Venture Valuations

U.S. VC rounds with hedge fund participation

Hedge funds’ participation is considerably off in 2016 so far (for more on this subject, click here).

Venture Valuations

Median pre-money valuation ($M) of U.S. late-stage VC rounds with corporate VC participation

Corporate venture arms will continue investing in robust startups whose focuses align best with their parents.

Venture Valuations

Median time (years) between rounds in U.S. by series

Series B and C financings have seen the starkest increases in time between rounds.

Venture Valuations

U.S. venture up, flat or down rounds by year

VC investors are either willing to be persuaded to re-up even in a down round—in order to recoup later—or don’t need to be. 2016, though, has seen a record pace of down rounds.
