PwC MoneyTree is the go-to source for Venture Capital firms and high growth startups.
While funding to VC-backed companies in the United States increased 4%, reaching $21.1B invested across 1,206 deals, deal activity declined 2%. A high number of mega-rounds contributed to the funding growth this quarter, which was the second-consecutive quarter with over 30 rounds of $100M or more. Q1’18 saw 34 mega-rounds to US VC-backed companies, which accounted for 34% of total funding, but down from 42% in Q4’17. This marks the first decline since Q4’16.

2018 looks to continue the trend of larger deals as we’ve now seen two consecutive quarters with over 30 rounds of $100M or more – only the second time in recent history that this has happened. Additionally, the $21B we saw invested this quarter is a record high, just the second time we’ve reached this funding level during the last 15 years, and Artificial Intelligence saw its biggest funding quarter ever (over $1.8B).
