Non-traditional investors (mutual funds, PE investors, sovereign wealth funds) sky rocketed in 2021, creating 5,212 deals and $253.8B in deal value total. 

Three thoughts: 

  1. This is a big reason valuations are being pushed higher. 
  2. Trend will have zero impact on first and second tier VCs. 
  3. 2022/2023 will return to 2019/2020 levels with stock market correction and high private valuations being the key catalysts.
