A robust Q4’17 propelled total annual global VC funding to the third-highest quarterly tally of the decade. A number of billion-dollar mega-deals over the course of the year, including six $1 billion+ rounds in Q4, drove the significant funding upswing. VC funding was up year-over-year across all regions, including Asia, the Americas and Europe.

In this quarter’s edition of the Venture Pulse Report, we examine both annual and Q4’17 VC market trends, including:

  • The increase in deal size across all deal stages
  • The rapid upswing in healthtech and biotech
  • The growing focus on cross industry innovation and applicability
  • The rapid evolution of France as an innovation center
