U.S. Venture Capital Outlook 2022: First Half Tracking
Revisiting our US venture capital predictions for 2022
At the start of the year, analysts at PitchBook charted their projections for the U.S. venture capital market in 2022. Midway through the year, trends begin to crystallize, and our latest analyst note updates update the dashboard.
Key points to remember
- About 1,173 venture capitalists have closed a deal in the US, which bodes well for our forecast of over 1,500 for the year.
- The 10 most active venture capital ecosystems are on track to reach our projection of over 400 deals each.
- Macroeconomic forces undermined our forecast for a year-over-year increase in public listings of venture capital-backed companies.
