Venture funding has started flooding back in at least one area: Secondaries

Joint venture secondary company The market has been on the same roller coaster ride as the broader VC market for the past few years, but it looks poised to break in 2023.

Like venture capital in general, the secondary market is very hot in 2021 when there are a lot of new players — sounds familiar? — entered the field as traditional cross-investors and VCs engaged in secondary equity purchases as a way to secure lucrative deals where they could not access primary equity grant. As the market moves into 2022, secondary transactions drop to the same volume as their joint venture counterparts amid mismatched valuations and expectations.

But while it’s still unclear whether the venture market has bottomed out — some investors say it’s already happened, while others fear the worst is yet to come — second trades level is being demolished. The data shows that transactions start to pick up again in the second half of 2022, and many investors think 2023 could turn out to be a great year.
