For the first quarter of 2019, US venture capital-backed companies saw its first decline in both deals and dollars in a long time. For funding, it was the first material decline since Q3'16 and for deals, it was the third straight quarter decrease. Investors are shifting away from the earliest and riskiest bets with US seed-stage deal share declining to 24% of all deals vs 30% just a year ago. Mega-rounds, which have buoyed funding levels, were also down this quarter although there still is plenty of money for mid- to later-stage companies.
“Over the past three quarters, we’ve seen the number of deals moderate down, while the total amount invested stays relatively consistent. The prevalence of mega deals — characterized as rounds greater than $100 million — continues to shape the VC landscape.”
