The Venture Capital (VC) space has been taking a hit for quite some time now, however, this time when it has taken a hit, almost no one knows what the future is going to be like. As is known to everyone, as a space, venture capital is one financial area which has been benefitting from the generosity of the Federal Reserve in the last couple of years, but it looks like things are taking a turn now.
Some experts in this space have said that the venture capital space is almost on the verge of a silent crash. Just last week, most people in the financial space said that right on the surface the US economy might appear like it's faring well, but there are some problems arising from the behind.
Again, the experts say that the Venture Capital (VC) space has been booming for the last two years due to the courtesy of the Federal Reserve, but it appears that they are having a tough time now as the Fed has been pulling back now. Also, due to the outbreak of the novel pandemic, almost all the sectors in the United States have been affected massively and a small recession hit too, leading supply chains to dry up, with many people leaving or asked to leave.
Again, the stock market had hit new highs due to the actions of the Fed, with debt markets booming, and crypto assets taking off. There was a continuous flow of money till the beginning of 2022, which has almost led to the venture capital (VC) world stepping into a silent crash.
Actually, there were many investors and entrepreneurs who had been living through a period of boom in the world of venture capital, which can lead people to think that there is no crash at all. Those organizations that have a need for funding urgently have been kind of forced into a full reckoning, this is because investors will put in a new demand for money and an up-to-date valuation.
By the end of the 1990s, the annual investment had reached up to $100 billion in the US. And, the amount had reached $330 billion in 2021, this was mainly due to the fact that there was a plethora of IPOs during this time. According to data, approximately $1.4 trillion was invested into those companies that promised growth all across the globe through last year in 2021.
Naturally, the investors would not want to miss out on this opportunity. As of now, there are several industries that have been booming, like industrial production has been high, however, amid all this there have been several repercussions, and this has been prevailing for the last two three, and they are not likely to bring about a positive response moving forward.
What is important to note now is how the Fed is going to deal with the financial instabilities that are likely to arise since the major venture capital firms, private equity firms, crypto asset prices, and prices in the other spaces.
