Haves & Have Nots: Which Venture Capital Firms Had the Most IPO Exits in 2013?

This is an excerpt from Mattermark Weekly, our weekly newsletter about all things tech investing, venture capital and startups. If you find this data useful and would like to receive free weekly industry analysis in your email inbox we hope you will subscribe here.

The release of Twitter’s S-1 Thursday triggered memories of the Facebook public offering along with many comparisons. While the mainstream media continues to characterize the social network’s debut on the NASDAQ as a catastrophe, savvy investors know the lack of a “pop” in price was great for insiders – the employees and early investors who took a risk on the young startup and helped grow it into the advertising powerhouse it is today.

Hype continues to grow, as it is not yet know when Twitter will officially go public or on which exchange. In the meantime you can read up on the 25 less hyped tech IPOs that have already taken place this year.
