Useful Stats: Average Venture Capital Deal Size by State, 2005-2010

May 11, 2011

U.S. average venture capital deal size rose by 6.7 percent in 2010, after having fallen to its lowest point in a decade in 2009. While California leads in average deal size, Iowa has run a close second over the past five years. Iowa, Minnesota and Nevada are all among the middle ranks of states in terms of overall venture activity, but rank near the top in average deal size. These states depend on larger deals to sustain their competitiveness in capital access. Illinois, Colorado and Pennsylvania all ranked in the top 10 for venture activity in 2010, but have lower than average deal sizes. This indicates that activity in these states is driven by a high volume of smaller deals. SSTI has prepared a table of average venture capital deal size by state, 2005-2010. View the table...
