"Venture capital funding hit its highest annual mark since 2001 as venture investors participated in $47.3 billion across 3,617 deals. Even versus 2013, the past year was huge as venture capital skyrocketed 62% YoY due to multiple $500M+ mega-rounds while deal growth was more modest, climbing 8%. Of note, two quarters each – Q2’14 and Q4’14 – notched over $13B in funding.

This in-depth report analyzes financing and exit trends across U.S.-based rounds in which VCs participated as well as top investors, exits and deals in 2014. Below is a high-level summary of some of the report’s highlights. For all of the findings, download the entire report. It’s free."

      Thanks for posting this Joe. For startup entrepreneurs out there, the good news from the data is that there is still lots of money at the seed stage.

      From a growth hackers perspective, if any questions on how we use B2B content to generate leads, happy to chat. We're adding about 1000+ to our newsletter per week so while we've not figured it out, we've got some things that are reasonably successful.

      Thanks again.

        You're most welcome Anand. PS: I wouldn't spill the beans on your lead gen strategy to a soul :-) I'm too big a fan of your research.

          Ha. Thx Joe. We've learned a lot from people on Growth Hackers and folks like Noah Kagan, Brian Dean, Neil Patel, etc so hopefully one day, we can repay the favor.
