#18 - The Future of Startup Equity Markets
The theme of this episode is MORE. More funding, more startups, more investors, more everything.
Funding for startups has grown 10x in 10 years, an astonishing 26% annual growth rate. Money is flowing in not just from venture capitals, but from new types of investors as well. It's all been helped by an accommodative regulatory environment.
Those trends will continue to propel the industry forward. Expect more liquidity, more complex financial products, and more bundling of capabilities as the market grows.
We analyze the three big trends - more VC money, more new types of investors, and more investor-friendly regulations - before we predict the startups that will emerge to serve this market in the years and decades to come.
