In our report in conjunction with BizTech@Wharton entitled the Evolving World of eCommerce, we highlighted a variety of statistics about eCommerce investment and M&A trends since 2008 for those areas of eCommerce being covered as part of the BizTech@Wharton conference.
One statistic we highlighted in the report (instructions on how to get the free report at the end of this brief) was that since 2008, there have been 81 acquisition transactions in the following areas of eCommerce: Flash Sales, Daily Deals, Alternative Currencies, Sharing Economy/Collaborative Commerce, CrowdFunding and Subscription eCommerce. As can be seen, M&A activity in these areas of eCommerce is significantly accelerating as well.
