Silicon Valley Bank: State of the Innovation Economy

Hear the inside views on the health and productivity of the venture ecosystem in the sixth edition of SVB Analytics’ State of the Markets report, covering:

Heightened Investor Interest, Options for Founders
Through the first half of 2017, U.S. market conditions for IPOs have been favorable: Strong investor demand, equities near all-time highs and volatility at historical lows have provided U.S. companies and their investors with ample opportunity for new listings. Despite this, many highly valued companies continue to raise capital on the private markets, delaying their public offering and extending the nearly two-decade trend of staying private longer. In fact, this past quarter recorded the most $100M-plus financing rounds since Q3 2015, driven by participation from private equity investors who have shown growing interest in the tech sector.


China Innovation in Focus: Converging Opportunities
China has emerged as a transformative player in the global innovation ecosystem, catalyzed through rapid urbanization, an expanding domestic investor base, and an economy that boasts the most mobile-connected consumers in the world. Today, China is home to the second-largest venture capital market in the world, with access to talent and capital rivaling that of the United States. This special report, produced in partnership with SPD Silicon Valley Bank*, our joint-venture bank based in Shanghai and Beijing, examines the many ways in which China’s innovation ecosystem reflects the U.S. and provides insight into converging future opportunities.
