For the previous month, VC investment rate appears to have actually slacked off in the U.S., but deal activities in China are picking up following a slowdown prompted by the COVID-19 break out.

According to PitchBook, “Chinese firms taped 66 venture capital offers for the week ended March 28, one of the most of any week in 2020 and just listed below figures from the very same time last year,” (although 2019 was a sluggish year). There is a natural lag between when deals are made and when they are revealed, however still, there are some interesting patterns that I couldn’t assist noticing.

While lots of U.S.-based VCs have not had a possibility to concentrate on new offers, recent financial investment trends coming out of China may indicate which shifts might persist after the crisis and what it might suggest for the U.S. financier community.
