3Q 2017 PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor

Key Highlights:

  • Significant VC availability is allowing companies to forgo traditional exit timelines
  • Startups are raising later, waiting until a median 2.4 years after founding before raising angel/seed rounds
  • Though 3Q was slow, 2017 is likely to be the fourth consecutive year with $30 billion+ in commitments
