China saw mega deal proceeds triple QoQ in Q1

Greater China-based startups inked 19 mega deals — defined as deals worth at least $100 million — in the first quarter of this year, raising over $14.6 billion in total. These deals accounted for 72.8% of the total proceeds raised in Jan-March 2024, according to the latest report from DealStreetAsia — DATA VANTAGE.

March contributed to the bulk of the mega deal financing, with seven big-ticket investments collectively raising $12.1 billion, per Greater China Deal Review: Q1 2024.

Although proceeds from mega deals in Q1 almost tripled from the previous quarter, the number of such deals dropped by 9.5% sequentially. In fact, the first quarter saw the fewest big-ticket deals since Q1 2020.
