Venture Capital


The US Venture Capital market invested a record $132.1 billion in 2018. The market continues to mature and diversify. Technology investments still dominate but other sectors are increasing in importance. The level of activity and the returns generated have attracted a wider range of investors. Corporate Venture Capital (CVC), Private Equity and Sovereign Wealth Funds have all increased their exposure. Geographic diversity has also increased as VC penetrates regions throughout the US and around the world.


This is all good news for firms looking to raise capital for startup and growth. However, firms still need to prepare themselves for the market. This requires appropriate business planning, valuation and market strategy. For support with your VC activities, please contact us at: info@claretconsult.com
