2017 was a landmark year for venture capital fundraising and investment activity. Total VC investment reached its highest level since the dot-com era, and median and average deal sizes hit decade-highs despite a decrease in deal volume. Valuations increased to record-setting levels and late-stage companies raised more capital than ever before.
Join WilmerHale Partner Dave Gammell (Co-Chair, Emerging Company and Venture Capital Group) and a panel of leading VC investors from NEA, Pillar and Spark Capital to look back at the major trends in 2017 and discuss what we can expect in the coming year. Other key topics include:
- Technology and innovation in 2018
- Activity outside Silicon Valley
- Initial coin offerings
- Exit activity and the “unicorn” effect
