German Venture Capital Barometer 1st Quarter 2024

VC sentiment has emerged from its slump

VC sentiment bounced back to its path of recovery in the first quarter of 2024. Thus, although sentiment in the German VC market remained rather subdued at the start of the year 2024 as well, the improvement nearly made up for the slump in sentiment in the final quarter of 2023. The business climate indicator of the early-stage segment rose by 6.7 points to -20.5 balance points. Both subcomponents – current situation assessments and business expectations – improved at a similar rate.
