Majority Of Global VC Investment Volume Were Low-Value Deals

Big-ticket, billion-dollar deals were mostly non-existent during Q4 2020, as low-value deals (where the investment was less than or equal to $10m) accounted for the majority of global venture capital (VC) investment volume, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Of the total 3,603 global deals during the quarter that disclosed deal value, 66.2% were low-value deals, while those valued more than $100m stood at just 4.2%.

Aurojyoti Bose, Lead Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “With tough market conditions and uncertain business environment, cautiousness prevails among investors while committing big-ticket investment. Investors are, therefore, turning towards low-value deals.”
