Revolution Year in Review 2014

Revolution & the Venture Capital Industry in 2014

As we reflect back on 2014, it goes without saying that it was an excellent and rewarding one for our firm and partners, as well as a big year for the venture capital industry. According to data from the National Venture Capital Association and PricewaterhouseCoopers venture capitalists invested $48.3 billion in U.S. startups last year, the most since 2000.

Through every new investment, we continue to be invigorated and inspired by the passionate entrepreneurs behind these disruptive companies. You can read more about our 2014 investments here.
