August 1, 2024
Due to lingering liquidity constraints caused by low exit counts, the US VC ecosystem continues to face dealmaking pressure. Based on preliminary data, annualized numbers of acquisitions and public listings are on track to land at the lowest level we have observed in a decade. Market sentiments have also experienced a visible shift throughout Q2. While the IPOs of Reddit and Astera Labs brought hope earlier in the year, the excitement has dimmed as there does not seem to be a pipeline of high-profile IPO candidates. In partnership with the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and sponsored by J.P. MorganDentons, and Deloitte, this webinar will highlight key findings from the Q2 2024 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor report and what investors should consider for the year ahead.
  • Early-stage VC deal value jumped by 56.9% QoQ, notching $16B in Q2—but the figure is buoyed by select outsized deals.
  • The pace of dealmaking remains sluggish, suggesting a flattening of deal activity.
  • 2024 has a mere total of 35 public listings so far, and the lack of exits continues to weigh on LP liquidity constraints.
  • Fundraising activity remains diminished, with established firms commanding an advantage when securing LP commitments.
