KPMG Private Enterprise’s Global Network for Innovative Startups launched the Q3’17 edition of the Venture Pulse Report. The report analyses the latest global trends in venture capital investment data and provides insights from both a global and regional perspective. This edition of the quarterly series provides in-depth analysis on venture capital investments across North America, EMA and ASPAC and will cover a range of issues such as financing and deal sizes, unicorns, industry highlights and corporate investment.

While the number of VC deals globally continued to decline, the total amount of VC investment remained strong quarter over quarter. The top ten deals globally accounted for almost one-third of total VC funding, highlighting the pivotal role of large deals in the ongoing health of the VC market.

The continued decline in the number of deals, particularly at the earliest deal stages has also shown how investors continue to be cautious with their investments – conducting significant due diligence of potential deals even at the seed and angel funding stages.

In this quarter’s edition of the Venture Pulse Report, we explore these and a number of other global and regional trends, including:

  • The rising number of mega-deals across the globe
  • The increased due diligence being conducted on deals of all sizes
  • The evolution of virtual reality and augmented reality – and its application across sectors
  • The growing importance of corporates amid a pullback from “tourist” investors
