There was a debate in 2015 about if a basket of late stage private co's were a bubble or just expensive, but they appeared rich vs public markets.
Today it is flipped and late stage private markets are apparently at a discount to public markets. Which means more supply cometh.

GOLDMAN: $61B in SPAC IPO proceeds is "currently searching for acquisition targets. Based on their 24-mo post-IPO expiration dates, these SPACs will need to acquire a target in 2021 or 2022, nearly equal to the total enterprise value of SPAC deal closures during the last decade"
