SVB’s Challenges Will Accelerate Valuation Down Rounds, Startup Mortality, and Layoffs

What does SVB’s Failure Mean for Startups?

Things are not looking good. 😞

SVB wasn’t just a bank.

It had relationships with more than 50% of all venture-backed companies in the U.S. and countless VC firms.

Its collapse will leave a big hole in the startup world.


Startups were already facing difficulties accessing funding from VCs in 2022 due to recession fears.

According to findings from a Crunchbase report, in the final quarter of 2022, investments in North American startups fell 63% compared to the same period a year earlier.

The collapse of SVB can have severe consequences.

💸 Lower tech valuations

☠️ Higher startup mortality

👎 Intensifying layoffs
