A Look at Venture Capital Deals
from 2000 to 2013

By Ed Teixeira

Here is a quick snapshot of venture capital activity from 2000 to 2013. The most striking change took place after the dot.com boom of 1999 and 2000. In those two years the total amount of venture capital investment was $160 million. There were 13,700 deals in those two years alone with the average deal at $11.3 million.

As a point of comparison, in the six years that followed from 2001 to 2006 the total amount of venture capital invested was $156 million.

It would be safe to say that the amount of venture capital transactions in 1999 and 2000 will never be duplicated. Going back to 1995 to 2013 the average venture capital investment has been almost $30 million per year. In the last 10 years the average deal has been $6.9 million
The following chart shows four years of activity during the 2000ís.
