The New York Venture Capital Almanac Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Orrick is proud to be a part of the New York venture community. And we’re equally proud to co-sponsor CB Insight’s New York Venture Capital Almanac. That’s because we think the NY VC Almanac is, and will be, a useful snapshot of where the New York venture community is right now, as well as a brief summary of where we’ve been. People will surely use the NY VC Almanac in a number of ways. But on a meta level, we think it makes a couple of points worth noting. First, the New York venture community is growing. And, though the NY VC Almanac doesn’t (and shouldn’t) include comparative data to other U.S. venture markets, if it did, it would show that the New York venture market is growing faster than the venture capital markets in other U.S. geographies. Second, and we believe more importantly, the NY VC Almanac shows that the New York venture community is a substantial market in and of itself, with numbers showing real deal volumes, and names showing real tech luminaries, both on the company and investor side. Companies and investors that have made names for themselves not just in New York, but throughout the national and global venture community. This is as it should be. Web and mobile businesses touch broad geographies, but there must be a reason why so many of them are now being formed and funded from New York. As the NY VC Almanac shows, the New York venture community has substantial, and growing, reach in the larger venture community. Sincerely, David L. Concannon Partner, Emerging Companies group, New York 2
  • 2. We’ve had a front row seat to the exciting pace of growth in the innovation sector in and around New York City for more than a dozen years. Working with some of the most exciting sectors, companies and their investors in business today, we’re thrilled to play a role in strengthening the environment for dynamic, innovative companies in New York – and we see it paying off. In New York, there will still be challenges, such as finding enough engineers, and there will, of course, be business cycles, but a solid foundation has been built here and we are confident the momentum will continue. The global technology sector is growing and New York continues to prove it is worthy of its fair share. The city’s professional and cultural diversity, open community and mentorship mindset, as well as HQ for a significant number of Fortune 500 companies, continue to attract an increasing number of startups. Sincerely, Michael Moretti Silicon Valley Bank, New York The data presented in this report definitely reflects our experience and what we see on a day to day basis. The tech sector locally is having another great year. In fact, based on first half activity, 2013 is on pace to achieve a five year high in deal and funding levels. Yahoo’s $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr, New York’s first billion dollar acquisition since Google bought DoubleClick in 2007, was definitely a highlight and Brooklyn’s Makerbot was acquired for $403 million too. Even the suburbs contributed significantly with Priceline’s $1.8 billion acquisition of Norwalk, CT-based Kayak. New York tech employment continues to grow at a strong rate, much faster than overall private sector employment, and the increasing number of startups has contributed significantly to this growth. Google’s expansion in New York, which now accounts for 10% of its employees as well as about 1,500 engineers, also helps. We’re seeing an increase in new company formation nationally and innovation and entrepreneurship are responsible for creating new opportunities, jobs and wealth in every global location where SVB has an office. 3

  • 70. Investor ▸ Venture Capital usv.com/ Union Square Ventures 915 Broadway Suite 1408 New York 10010 New York United States Union Square Ventures is an early stage venture capital fund located in New York City. The fund focuses on IT-enabled services in the media & marketing, financial services, healthcare and telecom verticals. Union Square Ventures receives and reviews investment proposals and business plans from across the United States and globally, but their investment history does indicate a preference for NY-based companies. Union Square prefers to be a lead investor and invests primarily in early-stage, Series A or Seed, deals. In terms of deal size, Union Square Ventures' starting position in portfolio companies is $1 million and under almost half the time. They do $2.5 to $3 million Series A deals about one-third of the time. In general, Union Square Ventures does not put up all the capital in the rounds they lead and will, per the firm, generally take between 50-60% of the round but have done upto 80%. They like to find other venture capital firms to invest alongside but given their small deal size, there may not be enough room for another venture firm and so Union Square Ventures will invest alongside angel investors. 143 Investments .................................................................................................. 2 Latest: VHX Corporation - Series A (Aug 29, 2013): $3.2M with Lowercase Capital, Lerer Ventures, Alexis Ohanian and William Morris Endeavor. 12 Exits ................................................................................................................ 4 Latest: Boxee (Acquired) on Jul 3, 2013 for $30M by Samsung. 4 Key People ....................................................................................................... 0 Bradford R.
