Venture Capital in New York, Q1 2013
By Andrea Moore, Project Manager, Economic Research & Analysis
Last week, the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) and PricewaterhouseCoopers released their most recent quarterly MoneyTree report, which provides information on U.S. venture capital deals and investment dollars. StatsBee wanted to take a quick look and assess how New York State did during the first quarter of 2013. 
New York posted another solid quarter of venture capital investment, especially from a year-over-year perspective. Deals are up 22.5% since Q1 2012, and investment dollars posted a 71.7% increase over the weak Q1 2012. Compared to the last quarter of 2012, which was very strong, both deals and dollars fell slightly in New York. Deals fell 9.4% from 96 to 87, corresponding to a 17.3% decrease in investment dollars.  However, the first quarter has been soft in recent years, so these results augur well for 2013.
For ongoing and in-depth analysis of venture capital investments and the tech sector in New York City, don’t miss the inaugural edition of NYCEDC’s new publication on Technology and Venture Funding, coming soon.
