Global Venture Capital Insights and Trends 2014

Author: EY
Date: January 2015

Venture capital activity reaches 13-year high.

The venture capital (VC) industry had an exceptional year in 2014. Funding was back to levels not seen since 2000, median deal sizes were higher across all development stages and we saw more “mega-investments” of more than US$50m than at any point since 2000. With the macroeconomic situation improving and an active exit environment, in which VC-backed IPOs both increased in number and outperformed other IPOs (including those backed by PE), the prospects for 2015 look strong.
