Venture Data Report: Q1 2020

Published April 10, 2020

We’ve witnessed great highs and deep lows over the first three months of 2020. Since January 1st, we have recorded our highest number of deals ever per quarter and a worldwide pandemic shock that halted markets worldwide.

It’s easy to get bogged down and absorbed by coronavirus news every breathing second of the day. In this overarching report, we look at the paths and trends that we are currently riding in the world of venture deals.

Note: This is data collected from the Pro Rata Newsletter.

For Starters

January starts the turn of the decade for us, and the startup investment ecosystem was off to a hot start. Posting a whopping $10,515,700,000 in total deals, January accumulated the most invested money by month since November 2019 ($11,058,800,000).

With momentum swinging forward, February gave another strong push, having 254 deals completed and totaled $9,284,460,000.

March saw some pushback in the amount of deals completed (dropping to 223 deals), however, funding capital jumped back up to $9,562,800,000 in total.

It’s important to keep in mind: These are merely funding announcements where capital could have been closed weeks/months ago. The next ~3 months will be telling to see if investors are working on new deals with companies that were not in their pipeline Pre COVID-19.
