Private Equity and Venture Capital
Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) Firms are at the core of so much of the international economies of scale. Both PE and VC activity across all three (3) forums (investing, exits, fund-raising) continues to be very strong providing ample opportunity for continued speculation and growth across multiple markets, sectors, and industries.
The Private Equity (PE) activity in 2020 rebounded sharply after the initial sting of the COVID crisis as reported by Bain and Company. Deal counts, exit counts, and funds raised have all risen sharply heading into 2021 as seen in the charts below.
Venture Capital (VC) trends have continued to surface with the number of “mega-deals” increasing strongly. According to Exploding Topics, there are four (4) important VC trends emerging; in addition to the increase in “mega-deals”, equity crowd-funding is growing in the “start-up” arena, VC has started a large migration to other parts of the U.S. and the world, and many VCs are “cashing-out”. As 2020 and 2021 have seen a record number of IPOs and SPAC transactions, there is just a ton of activity to be considered overall
The PE and VC world is “different” and the Executives needed to work in all functions within this “world” are also “different”. Maccabeus has a robust, long-standing history in working across all functions across the board within the PE and VC “world” and has a solid understanding of what it takes for and Executive to succeed in this forum.
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this further with you and your Board.
