Venture Investments Decline in Third Quarter

October 26, 2011

U.S. venture capital firms invested $6.95 billion in 86 deals in the third quarter of 2011, according to the more recent release from the PricewaterhouseCoopers and National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) Moneytree report. The figures represent a 12 percent decline in dollars and a 14 percent decline in since from the previous quarter, but an increase in both dollars and deals over the third quarter of 2010. Despite the loss compared to the previous quarter, national venture investment appears to be continuing its gradual rebound from the collapse in late 2008.
