National #venturecapital funding jumps 37 percent #JohnCallegari @LIBN @resilient_ent #bennyquetell #resilientmediaentertainment
The most recent VC activity report conducted by CB Insights concluded that 812 venture capital deals were consummated in the second quarter across the nation, worth a total of $8.1 billion. Both the number of deals and dollars represented highs for the industry that had not been attained in a single quarter since 2001.
The news is especially heartening after the first quarter of 2012 produced only 785 deals worth $5.9 billion. In addition, while California remained dominant, bringing in 45 percent of all deals nationwide, for the second straight quarter New York state unseated Massachusetts as the No. 2 state for VC deals. New York state recorded 10 percent of the nation’s VC deals compared to Massachusetts’ 9 percent, the CB Insights report noted.
However, in terms of actual dollars invested, Massachusetts still has the edge over New York by 4 percent. In total, New York state brought in $500 million in VC funding over 83 deals in the second quarter. The total number of deals is up 36 percent from the second quarter of 2011, although funding actually decreased by $39 million from that same time period.
However, considering New York only brought in $336 million in VC funds in the first quarter of 2012, $500 million in the second quarter represents a nice rebound. Seed deals have seen the biggest gains in recent quarters, representing 22 percent of all deals in the second quarter of 2012; up from 12 percent in the second quarter of 2011. Internet technology also saw big gains, representing almost half of all deals, up almost 10 percent from just six months ago.
