Today is the last day of Q3 2022, which means we are moving quickly towards the end of the year. And since today is the last day of a financial reporting period, it’s a great time to join australiabusinessblog.com+!
Jokes aside, we had a long list of expectations here at The Exchange, but unfortunately much of it has not happened. Perhaps after the last few years of go-go venture capital and startup activity, we were a little too excited. We weren’t alone, of course, given the number of founders who kept their fundraising horses in check until market conditions improved, which largely didn’t happen in the third quarter.
The Exchange explores startups, markets and money.

To celebrate our mistakes, let’s go back through a list of things we didn’t see in Q3 and put some of our expectations for Q4 on record.
Given our usual focus, we are talking about IPOs and valuations to some extent. We will also cast our view outside the US and see what markets elsewhere come up with the last quarter of 2022. After all, quite a lot is happening in Europe, Latin America and other regions with many startups in the world.
