“Unveiling the Future: Venture Capital for 2023 in 5 Illustrations”

We’ve gone over how venture capital investment fared across the world over the past few days, but today we wanted to provide a more comprehensive look at the numbers. The TechCrunch+ team has charted data from PitchBook on venture capital investment flows across the world, and in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Global venture capital resultsThis chart doesn’t appear too dramatic at first glance. However, Q4 2023 was particularly bad: Q4 2017 was the last time we saw venture investment in the last three months of the year fall so low. That’s not good, especially as venture investment continued to drop in every quarter of 2023.

The new year has just begun and the startup world is already buzzing with news. TechCrunch’s latest headlines already report on venture funds securing new capital and startups either raising large sums of money or in the process of closing deals.

While we recently discussed global venture capital investments, today we’re taking a more in-depth look at the numbers. The TechCrunch+ team has compiled data from PitchBook, providing a comprehensive overview of venture capital investment trends in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America over the course of eight quarters.

Initially, this chart may not seem too dramatic. However, a closer look reveals a steady decline in investment and total deal volume since Q1 2022. Upon reviewing the latest numbers, there is a bearish outlook as 2023 saw a dip in venture investment ($345.7 billion) to levels last seen in 2018 and 2019, before the pandemic hit.

Q4 2023 was particularly dismal, with investment in the last three months of the year reaching a low not seen since Q4 2017. This continued downward trend in every quarter of 2023 begs the question – will 2024 be the year of comeback that many are hoping for?
