We are excited to share with you the October edition of "Stableton Growth Equity Watch" report. This publication offers an outlook on the growth equity landscape, highlighting some significant trends and events.

Key takeaways from this month's report include:
  • Global VC activity remains challenging; however, the uptick in exit activity is encouraging and could help spur risk appetite.

  • Although the Klaviyo and Instacart IPOs may have been disappointing, Klaviyo investors in Secondaries get rewarded.

  • Investors start piling into secondaries: Secondaries funds raised $37.2B in H1/2023, up 30% from H1/2022. Goldman Sachs survey revealed secondaries to be the second most popular strategy after co-investing.

  • Companies continue to exercise their Right of First Refusal (“ROFR”) at elevated levels, suggesting insiders are ready to buy back shares at current levels.
