The first quarter of 2019 has continued with much of the same momentum that carried through 2018. According to the latest Pitchbook-NVCA Venture Monitor report, VCs invested over $32B across 1,853 deals in 1Q2019, while PwC MoneyTree pegs the number at $24.6B across 1,279 deals. According to both reports, activity did reduce both in total dollars invested and deal volume. However, relative to historic data, 1Q2019 posted remarkable numbers for both deal and dollar volume. Reduced number of investments and increased frequency of “mega-rounds” continue to up the average quarterly deal size, while the frequency of deals continues to decrease. This is due in part to larger funds that need to put more capital to work in each deal.
