KPMG Enterprise’s Global Network for Innovative Startups and CB Insights (the ‘go to’ name for insights related to venture capital investment) launched the 2nd 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.
Q3-2015 was an exciting time for many regions of the world. While deal value dropped slightly compared to Q2, VC-backed investments year to date were 11 percent higher than all VC investment in 2014, and 100% higher than all investment in 2013. A number of very significant rounds made global headlines this quarter – from Uber to Didi Kuaidi, and Social Finance to Snapdeal.
The report seeks to answer a number of key questions, including:
VC-backed companies haul in US$32 billion across 1,819 deals globally in Q2 2015 driven by mega financing and rise of non-traditional investors.
