US MoneyTree Reporting: 2020

Deal activity and funding see year over year declines while mega-rounds drive increase in funding. The pandemic is affecting regions as they are locally impacted.

US VC deals fall for the third consecutive quarter in Q1’20: 9% QoQ and 16% YoY. In March 2020, US deals decrease 22% YoY, with some of the decline attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, funding still rises 14% QoQ on the back of larger deals.

Nearly half of all US funding in Q1’20 comes from mega-rounds: Despite a slowdown in deals at the end of the quarter, 58 US companies raise rounds worth $100M or more in Q1’20, close to the record of 67 in Q2’19. 21 of these rounds took place in March 2020, suggesting COVID-19’s impact may become more apparent in Q2’20.

The number of unicorn companies reaches a new high, but aggregate valuation is falling. The number

Money Orders – Walmart.com

Make transactions convenient with money orders

Money orders are official documents representing a specific monetary value, similarly to written checks. However, money orders are different from other forms of payment in a few different ways, which you can read about below. What’s important to know up front is that money orders are prepaid, so you must be able to pay for the full amount you want to include in your money order when you go to purchase it. For example, if you want to send a $100 money order to a family member, you need to be able to pay $100 up front in order to create the money order. Money orders aren’t a form of credit and don’t require a credit score, and you don’t even need a bank account to pay for one. This makes money orders an accessible form of payment for people in a wide

    Business Functions Library for Excel


    Find Us on Facebook (opens a new tab)

    Business Functions is a function library for Microsoft Excel for Windows desktop that’s been around since 2002.

    We think it makes business plans, budgets, structured financings and cashflows more powerful and manageable. We found that using standard functions makes models:

    • more adaptable, because a single function call can invoke a large variety of different kinds of behaviour.
    • more accurate, because, amongst other things, over the years we’ve built in quite a sophisticated date/time system that models time periods very accurately.
    • faster to build, because you can build from an existing palette of standard algorithms, rather than reinventing the wheel every time. Its more of a building block approach.
    • quick to run, because of the fast language the functions are written in (C++).
    • probably less error prone, because of the standard and tested behaviour of the functions. Be aware, that it doesn’t eliminate the cause of
