Summary

Startup funding year-over-year (YoY) growth will at best turn flat by the end of 2020 due to tough investor scrutiny, tough founder scrutiny, and fewer new entrants across several markets. Regulatory tech funding will double in 2020 due to the growing demand for technology tools that help firms meet compliance challenges. The blockchain bubble will burst in 2020, in part due to a notable drop in the number of investors and fewer exit events overall. The saturated AI startup market will face a slowdown in 2020. With fewer entrants, fundraising will skew to later stages.
