During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, concern was high, public markets were suffering and it wasn’t hard to find wags on Twitter declaring that the world had changed and startup valuations were now off 40% u2014 if you could put a round together.n

But last night, we reported that more startups than expected were raising new capital at a higher valuations than prior rounds, an event often called an “up round.”n

The data looked remarkably steady. As Connie Loizos wrote, “so-called up-rounds only declined modestly, from 72% [of Silicon Valley financings] in March to 70% in April.” Hardly doom and gloom.n

The notion that the funding environment is not as bad as it was anticipated has been borne out in other data, including what appears to be a falling pace of startup layoffs. Perhaps the world is not falling for private, growth-oriented companies that we tend to call startups?n

"TheMore data helps fill in the picture. Surveys from NFX, a San Francisco-based seed fund, and DocSend, a platform that some founders use to distribute pitch decks, detail how sentiment has changed amongst founders and investors alike. There’s some good news in the collected sentiments, albeit with a few warning signs as well.n

What seems clear from the reports is that the purported startup apocalypse hasn’t come, provided that they weren’t serving, or working in a sector of the economy that zeroed-out due to COVID-19.n

Let’s dig into the numbers to better ground our understanding of how entrepreneurs and venture capitalists really view u2014and disagree on u2014 today’s private markets.n

Concerns and realitiesn

TechCrunch covered the first NFX COVID-19 survey back in April, writing at the time that founders seemed a little more optimistic than venture capitalists when it came to the economy’s rebound and their short-term fortunes.
