U.S. Venture Capital Deals Notched All-Time High Of US$330 Billion In 2021

U.S. Venture Capital Deals Notched All-Time High Of US$330 Billion In 2021

Venture capital dealmaking in the United States reached an all-time high in 2021 at nearly US$330 billion, buoyed by excess liquidity and an accommodative monetary policy, according to a report from PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association.

Venture capital firms ramped up bets on technology, biotech, healthcare and fintech sectors, announcing a record 17,054 deals in the year.

It was also the best year on record for VC fundraising, which hit US$128.3 billion across 730 funds. The figure, which breached the US$100 billion-mark for the first time, was US$40 billion higher than the previous record in 2020.

Some of the biggest fundraises last year included crypto firm FTX Trading, which was valued at US$25 billion in October, and AI platform Databricks, which notched a valuation of US$38 billion in August, each raising US$1 billion.

The frenetic pace of fund raising is expected to continue this year, as cash with venture capital firms remains at an all-time high, and returns outpace all other assets classes, the report added.

VC-backed companies going public or being bought out led to exits worth US$774.1 billion in 2021, nearly 88% of which was realized through public listings. While the U.S. initial public offering (IPO) market continued on a tear, special purpose acquisition companies have offered a viable alternative to IPOs despite tightening regulatory scrutiny.
