While early-stage venture capital internet deals get their share of attention, and activity has stayed healthy, the trend over the last five quarters shows that as a % of total internet deals, venture capital deals in mid- and late-stage internet companies are trumping their early-stage brethren. While the % of deals in early-stage has stayed within a tight range, Q1 2010 was the lowest percentage in five quarters going back to Q1 2009’s venture capital activity. (Note: Early stage is defined as those investments by firms into companies which are young and which have not received institutional funding before)
The trend over the last five quarters leveraging CB Insights’ deal data can be seen below.
