Q1 venture investments highest in more than a decade
Investment into venture-backed companies is already on pace to experience another record-breaking year in 2018, according to the PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor. As reported in this recent news release, investors deployed $28.2 billion, the highest amount of capital in Q1 of this year than any single quarter since 2006.
There’s also a different take on the Q1 results as noted in this post from the SSTI Weekly Digest. The non-profit organization notes that “2017’s trends toward fewer, larger deals are only accelerating into the new year.”
