In 2007, we recognized a growing demand for high-quality, comprehensive information onthe private equity and venture capital industries, and the need for a thoughtfully designedand powerful web-based information platform devoted speci
cally to the needs of industry professionals. We believed that our decades of 
nancial research and product developmentexperience as members of the VentureSource executive team and other leading informationcompanies uniquely quali
ed us to deliver. Years of hard work in research, design, anddevelopment—
rst by a few dedicated souls, and now by a team of over 130 professionals,including 70 research analysts—have resulted in the award-winning PitchBook Platform.A
er establishing PitchBook as the leading provider of private equity data, news, and analysis,we returned to our roots, researching the venture capital industry. We are excited to now beproviding a fresh look at trends in VC investment, exits, and fundraising through our new quarterly PitchBook VC Rundown reports.
e data and trends we explore come straight fromour research team’s exhaustive, person-by-person, company-by-company, and investor-by-investor research on venture capital.As you will see in this report, today’s venture capital industry is incredibly dynamic withimportant trends arising, shi
ing, and disappearing on a nearly constant basis. Researching thisindustry and combining it with powerful and intuitive technology is our passion. If you have notalready taken a look at our PitchBook Platform, we encourage you to do so, as we are con
dentthat you will
