Venture capital invested globally increased for a second straight quarter, from $25.6 billion in 1Q to $30.1 billion in 3Q, while deal count fell for a second straight quarter, including a major drop from 2Q to 3Q (down 24%). Exit activity also continues to decline. Quarter-over-quarter, completed exits slipped by 22% in 3Q, while capital exited dropped by 37%. Valuations, of course, are flying high; but not just at the late stage. The median Series B valuation in 3Q—$58.6 million—jumped 65% from the same quarter last year.
