PitchBook's Q3 Emerging Technology Indicator Reveals Next Generation of Promising Startups

SEATTLE, Nov. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PitchBook, the premier data provider for the private and public equity markets, today released its Q3 2021 Emerging Technology Indicator (ETI), which provides in-depth analysis on the disruptive technologies driving growth opportunities and predicts the next generation of promising companies. The report tracks a smaller subset of startups receiving seed- and early-stage investment from top performing VC firms. In this third iteration of the report, PitchBook's Institutional Research Group tracked 189 early- and seed-stage deals that involved the top 15 VC firms. These firms are determined each quarter based on the success of their investments over time, in terms of exits and valuations. According to the analysis, top performing VCs are chasing emerging technology deals, deploying $6 billion across 189 deals in Q3 2021, the highest amount on record.

"Investment activity across early-stage emerging technologies is another proof point of frenetic VC environment," said Paul Condra, head of emerging technology research at PitchBook. "Emerging tech deal sizes tend to run 3x to 5x larger than median deal sizes across the entire VC industry, which is driven by several factors, including the tendency for our ETI investor cohort to be larger, multi-stage investors; their ability to obtain larger stakes in startups, and the higher likelihood of co-investment resulting in larger rounds. Investors are also closely monitoring current events driving market and economic trends, resulting in changes in the top five sectors attracting investment."

In Q3 2021, there were 14 early and seed stage deals over $100 million, up from eight deals in Q2 2021 and significantly higher than the historical quarterly average of three dating back through 2015. Compared to ETI deal trends on a cumulative four-quarter basis, Q3 deal activity was notable for several reasons, including the surge in Web3 & DeFi funding as well as the strong quarter for supply chain tech and the relatively low investment quarter for health and wellness tech and biotechnology.

See below some key takeaways from the investment activity in Q3 2021:
