Q1 2024 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor

May 1, 2024
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Due to a lack of large deals and low capital availability, 2024 is seeing the most investor-friendly venture market in over a decade. While companies return to the market to raise, Q1’s liquidity crunch resulted in only $9.3B venture capital raised across 100 US VC funds.

The issue of capital availability continues to put pressure on startups. Dwindling cash runways coupled with a stagnant exit environment have created intense challenges. These ongoing hurdles are driving startups and their investors to approach the new year with great caution.

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 Q1 2024 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor report and what investors should consider for the year ahead.

  • 2024 started on a lackluster note for venture dealmaking. Deal value for Q1 2024 surfaced a 29.0% decline from the same quarter a year ago.
  • Exit value remains low, but recent listings show signs optimism for IPO window to warm up.
  • The imbalance of capital demand and supply is being most acutely felt in venture-growth stage investments.
