KPMG's Venture Capital Practice


Event Overview:
Exit activity remained steady in 1H 2014, with VC firms increasingly using the public markets to find an exit for their portfolio companies. Overall, according to PitchBook, IPOs accounted for 17% of all VC exit activity in 1H 2014, a burst from the 11% they accounted for in 2013. With this in mind, please join KPMG partner Brian Hughes, national leader, Venture Capital who will lead a discussion on the current state of the IPO market, sector trends, performance of recent issuers, and outlook; the JOBS Act, two years later – a look at how the legislation has changed the IPO landscape; and an overview of the current M&A; and private placement landscape, including a focus on the Tech sector.
