As a startup entrepreneur searching for venture capital to fund my company, it would be useful to see the data by round of investment. Although there is an uptick in the amount of venture capital flowing into the markets compared to prior quarters, it seems to be in later rounds. The venture capital firms that are investing are able to buy assets at low valuations. My sense is that when the deal flow starts to slow for later round investment, the early stage companies will start to get funded. The challenge for the early stage CEO is to stay in the game with limited resources until a funding event.

Interesting. I would not have guessed the NYC/metro area would be that close to New England. Looks like there’s some startup activity in NYC. Nice.

By the way, great job on the infographic. Very well executed.
