A public forum for private financial markets

Deloitte and PitchBook have collaborated to produce a distinct methodology and array of data sets in order to answer some of the most pressing questions for venture capital and private equity-backed companies. The Road to Next series focuses on critical issues companies and their backers face, covering liquidity concerns, investor strategies, macroeconomic pressures, important regulations, market dynamics, and more.

In each edition, Deloitte subject-matter specialists discuss the issues dominating industry discussions in the current environment, especially the hurdles that growing companies face as they scale. As new market trends develop, additional themes and data sets will be featured to address potential concerns that private companies may have, whether they are planning to stay private or prepare for new phase of their journey.

What’s next for the red-hot enterprise software expansion-stage ecosystem, remote workforce surge, and resulting tax implications

Ongoing record-setting investment, fueled by the pandemic, continues to lift all boats in the technology sector, but none more than the B2B enterprise software niche. By midyear 2021, expansion-stage deal value set a new record of $21.7 billion.

Where taxes are headed in the digital economy

In this edition of The Road to Next, we explore the impact of digital transformation on enterprise software. How has it accelerated investment, and what are the resulting tax implications? Among other impacts, companies must grapple with increasing tax burdens that accompany growth and the advent of digital services tax.

Remote workforce surge adds more fuel to the fire

We also chronicle the dramatic rise of hybrid and fully remote workforces and their effect on enterprise software adoption to manage fairness, risk, and resulting tax complexity. One result: even greater growth and investment in enterprise software.

The digitization of everything has resulted in a massive uptick in the growth trajectory for certain enterprise companies.
