 Silicon Valley-centric but a very quick read: "The State Of The Startup: Fundraising Market In 2016"

Highlights:

- $42B invested in start-ups in 2015
- 34% in seed or series A.
- Substantial shift to consumer investments

Concluding paragraph:

"The late stage market may witness a different phenomenon. More than 40% of the dollars invested in Series B and later rounds originating from corporate venture capital, mutual funds, hedge funds and family offices. This money isn't committed to startup investing. Investment strategies for these types of investors can change quickly. If suddenly all that capital were to disappear and everything else were to remain the same, about $10B would leave the startup ecosystem - a drop of 25%. That would surely be felt across Startupland."

It feels a lot like dot-bomb in these here parts…

All the best, Stefanie Harvey
