Private company financing was a mixed bag as funding ($379 million) came in flat and deals (122) rose compared to the prior week. Despite a 50% decline versus the prior week, California held onto the top spot for funding. Illinois took over the second spot for the second time in the past three weeks. This past week was also the second largest single week of funding for Illinois this year. The Top 5 funding league table was rounded out by Massachusetts, Texas and New York. Activity continued to build in Massachusetts as the weekly funding total approached $60 million. Texas made its third appearance on the list since the start of the fourth quarter and set a new high for deals recorded in a week.
