The Labor Day holiday saw a dip in financing activity as private company financing fell to $253 million with only 76 deals recorded this past week. California was still the top location for funding despite a 40% decline in deal volume compared to the prior week. North Carolina claimed the second spot with a second consecutive week of strong dealflow and its largest single deal for the year. The top 5 funding league table was rounded out by Washington, New Jersey and Colorado. With last week’s tally, Washington has overtaken both Texas and New York for total funding raised in the third quarter-to-date (QTD) rankings. Finally, after being MIA for several months, New Jersey made the funding list for a second week in a row. Interactive charts on the past week’s dealflow are below (they may take a second to load).
