2021 SPACs, IPOS, & Acquistions: The Year for Billion Dollar Built World Exits Preview

2021 Built Worlds Tech Exits 100

In another sign of the times, we are adding a new data set to our tool kit this year. In addition to our Venture Investments Dashboard (cataloguing the sector's venture investment deals and investors), we are now introducing a data set focused on the sector's exits - Our Built World Exits Dashboard.

Whether via SPACS, private equity firms, strategic acquirers or initial public offerings, we are now seeing a drum beat of exits with nine, ten, and even eleven figure price tags like never before. In fact, 2021 was a watershed year for exits in the sector, marking more than half the exits we tracked with more than a billion dollar valuation. With this increasing activity, along with analyzing all the venture deals, investors, and rounds lead up to exits, we'll now be providing coverage of the acquisitions, buyers, IPOs, and related data.
