Want to visualize how the venture funding market is changing? Look no further than these 3 slides (from a presentation put together by our friends at Greenspring). I don’t think much commentary is needed here.
- Average round size at Series A is increasing dramatically.
- Venture is being increasingly driven by large rounds (especially at the later stages – this is significantly skewing the overall funding numbers that are being reported).
- IPOs are the new Unicorns (they’re becoming more scarce than their $1BN valued cousins)
