The numbers are out and believe it or not, Q1 of 2010 saw the most venture-backed company M&A transactions EVER in a single quarter. Let that sink in for those of you around this business in the late 1990s.
Also, the data showed more quarterly venture-backed IPOs since the fourth quarter of 2007 and 8 of the 9 IPOs are trading above their initial offering prices.
This is really encouraging. Fingers crossed. Also, if you are interested in more detail, check out the NVCA’s blog about the numbers.
