In the last year, the Top 30 Most Active Venture Capital Firms had their hands in one out of every four deals which amounted to nearly $9 billion in funding, a quarter of which ended up in the internet sector. We’ve already seen that investments within internet favored the social, gaming, eCommerce, and advertising industries. Here, we’ll examine the top 30’s internet investments by round and then by state.
Within internet, the most active VCs favored Series A, Series B, and Series C rounds, which accounted for over 80% of deals and dollars in 2009-2010. Seed rounds made up 8.6% of the year’s deals amongst the most active venture capital firms. Over the period, Series A, Series B, and Series C deal flow varied widely on a month-to-month basis, while Seed and Series D rounds remained consistent albeit sparse.
