Today’s venture capital the market seems strange because it is heterogeneous. While some companies may still raise megarounds, achieve unicorn statusand even attract a lot of new capital into sectors that are difficult to exit in the public markets, other startups have not been so lucky.
After years of capital flowing freely and the entire VC ecosystem and startup market pacing with bigger and faster rounds at new, higher prices, today we are in a more mixed environment. It did venture capital report for Q2 a little difficult; Yes, for example, the volumes of fintech venture companies are falling, but remain above the level of 2020. Is it bad or good?
To better understand where the venture capital market is today, we have collected a new dataset, this time from DocSend (former Dropbox unicorn bought the company in 2021). DocSend is best known as a software service that helps founders create presentations and share them with investors. As a result, he has a lot of data regarding the activities of both the founders and investors. The combined behavior of both sides of the investment table when it comes to funding startups is incredibly helpful and paints a picture of the VC market divergence, but not as quickly as we might expect. There is good news.

The exchange explores startups, markets and money.
The divergence between founders and investors, which we will detail below, is not good news in a general sense. However, when we compare the data to the doom and gloom we’ve heard from some of the founders, the information is almost reassuring. Not great, but not terrible either. Let’s talk about it.
