Private company financing picked up momentum last week with an increase in both deal volume and funding, as deal volume was up more than 20%. California was the top-funded state this past week, followed by newcomer Wisconsin. The top 5 funding league table was rounded out by Massachusetts, New Jersey and Vermont. This was the first week that Vermont has made it to the top of the weekly table and the third return for New Jersey this year. New York failed to make a Top 5 appearance in our funding table for the third consecutive week, but did have the third highest number of deals last week. Interactive charts on the past week’s dealflow are below (may take a second to load). To see profiles on the private companies receiving funding in the last week, logon to CB Insights.
