2019 finishes as second strongest VC investment year on record

As the 2010s came to a close, we can say with confidence that we experienced the greatest 10-year run in history for entrepreneurs raising venture capital. Between 2010 and the end of 2019, venture-backed startups raised more than $730 billion, almost doubling the $400 billion raised in the prior decade. What can the trends of the last year – and the last decade – tell us about what’s to come?

Let’s look at what drove the massive growth spurt in funding over the past decade:

  1. An explosion in IT; software “eating the world”
  2. The availability of mobile computing bringing goods and services to consumers anytime, anywhere
  3. The technology enablement of industries — business and financial services boomed with the rise of FinTech
  4. Continued advances in health care, health services, and biopharmaceuticals

The environment was also shaped by a prolonged zero interest rate environment that saw investors seeking yield and turning to venture to get it. In an era of abundant private capital, companies raised significant amounts and poured that into topline growth, in some cases not building infrastructure or positive unit economics. This is now being viewed with more scrutiny, especially in the consumer-facing markets.
