What is it?

PitchBook’s VC Exit Predictor is a machine learning algorithm that predicts a venture-backed company's likelihood of experiencing a traditional exit (M&A, IPO, or no exit) with 74% accuracy. Additionally, the feature also includes “Opportunity Score”, a proprietary measurement that helps assess expected returns based on historic IRR data.
