CED did a nice job putting together a 4 page North Carolina Venture Report on 2007. I'll just point to it here, but I will point out some interesting facts:
- NC-based companies raised $909m in 2007. This positions NC as #7 when stacked up against other states and this is NC's highest ranking ever. It represents a 72% increase over 2006.
- Triangle-based companies raised 87.5% of the venture capital in NC.
- Our firm is part of 3 of the top 6 companies that secured VC in 2007 - Motricity, ChannelAdvisor and Batanga.
Also, this report contains a list of all the VCs that have invested in NC-based companies. This is a good "prospect list" for NC-based entrepreneurs that may want to raise money this year.
