It was a sluggish third quarter for VC-backed tech exits and particularly IPOs, but some investors are outpacing their peers in terms of the numbers of exits they’ve seen thus far this year between Q1’15 and Q3’15.
We used CB Insights data and analytics to find the top corporate investors and VCs in exited tech companies.
The prolific San Francisco-based firm SV Angel tops our list as the VC investor with the most exited companies in 2015 year-to-date (YTD). SV Angel was the number two firm on our ranking of most active micro VCs in 2014.
Intel Capital, meanwhile, was the most active corporate or CVC in exited tech companies in the first three quarters of 2015. (We dig into the motivations, constraints, and goals of CVCs as well as how they differ from traditional venture capital in this recent guest post, here.)
See below for the full rankings of the top VC and CVC investors in exited tech companies.
SV Angel took the number one spot with the most exited tech companies from Q1’15 through Q3’15. NEA, 500 Startups, Accel, and Greylock are in a four-way tie for second place, as seen below.
Intel Capital leads all corporate investors with most tech exits year-to-date. It’s worth noting that Intel Capital was the number one corporate investor in our exits data for 2014 and 2013 as well. Google Ventures and Salesforce Ventures round out the top 3 spots.
