Venture Pulse Q1’18

Our latest edition of Venture Pulse / The Q1 2018 Venture Pulse 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.

Q1’18 got off to a strong start, with five $1 billion+ mega-rounds, including two massive deals in Southeast Asia. The U.S. continued to be the dominant market for VC investment, although investors have expanded beyond Silicon Valley to identify investment opportunities. Globally, investors have also diversified, making investments in a broader range of locations than ever before.

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

  • The diversification of VC investments, both within the U.S. and globally.
  • The increasing excitement around the applicability of AI in healthcare.
  • The potential implications associated with Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).
  • The longevity of ride-sharing as an investment sector and whether it is reaching its peak.
