Volatile markets

The venture capital and private equity industry is facing a highly volatile market environment. Rising interest rates have been pressuring the transaction environment and slowing down the market. Regardless of the industry, there have also been significant valuation corrections.

Data quality

To manage operations, create transparency, and raise funds, startups need to build reliable data sources, which can be challenging in some respects. Investors often have to base their decisions on insufficient data quality.

Managing a diverse portfolio

A successful venture capital firm will often have a portfolio of investments that spans different stages of development and industries and it can be challenging to effectively manage and monitor all of these investments.

Fundraising difficulties

LP’s have a wide choice between numerous funds and alternative fixed income investments. Many funds are having a hard time addressing follow-on investments with the current valuation losses in the portfolio.


Technology companies

Emerging technologies and industries offer significant growth potential, as the current development and growth of the AI industry demonstrate anew.

Investor Market

While the correction of valuations across the industry and portfolios showed a loss of value for investors, the more favorable valuations also offer the chance to close deals on better terms.

Pofitability focuss

After many companies were built for maximum growth with continuous funding needs, the tightening of the funding environment turned many companies into survival mode. Rather than tapping into maximum marketshare, startups are targeting profitability and improving their internal efficiency.

Dry powder is there

In recent years, a number of funds have been raised, which are acting rather cautiously in the current environment, but there is enough committed capital available as dry powder. The most promising companies can take advantage of this and generate strong returns for investors.
