The vast majority of venture capital activity in the state of New York has gone to companies based in Manhattan, specifically 84% of dollars and 92% of deals over the last 10 quarters have gone to Manhattan-based companies. And although still relatively small, it seems that Brooklyn’s VC activity is on the rise. Total funding in Q2 2012 hit a ten-quarter high and was twice the level of the next highest quarter and deals also came in at a four quarter highmark as well. Q2 2012 also saw Manhattan display deal strength as the island matched its own ten-quarter high on a deals basis as well.
No activity of note was found in Shaolin, Q-boro or the Boogie Down aka Staten Island, Queens or the Bronx.
