I am a data nerd when it comes to enterprise product management and mergers/acquisitions. I have led six global product management organizations for three public companies and three private equity-backed firms. I have also led five acquisitions for a total consideration of over $175 million and eight divestitures for a total consideration of $24.5 million in cash. I consume a lot of data. When it comes to M&A, the Software Equity Group regularly publishes a ton of detailed, free research. Occasionally, Pitchbook publishes some great free research. Pitchbook is basically the gold standard when it comes to data about VC, and Private Equity financing, and M&A activity. Their service is not inexpensive, but the quality and detail is amazing. Recently Pitchbook published some great free research on US VC valuation trends. You can access the report US VC Valuations Report Q2 2021 here. I have excerpted a few of the charts from the 27-page report. Download it and check out the great Pitchbook commentary.
