As we continue the release of our popular year-end datagraphics, posted below is a look at global venture capital fundraising, dealmaking and exit trends from 2015.
Venture fundraising remained healthy with $51 billion+ in commitments collected; median fund size was up 71% compared to last year and 89.3% of vehicles met their initial fundraising targets. On the dealmaking side, an industry-wide jump in valuations slowed overall activity. Exits dropped on all fronts from 2014’s massive numbers, particularly public offerings.
