MoneyTree venture stats

The PriceWaterhouse MoneyTree report has cool stats about venture funding here. Overall in 2006, $25.5 B was invested US companies in 3416 deals ($7.6M/deal), down from a high of $105.0 B invested in 7913 deals ($13.3M/deal) in 2000 (for full table go here).

In Q4 2006, Illinois ranked 13th among the 50 states (table here), with 14 deals totaling $95M going to Illinois ventures ($6.8M/deal). Illinois is the top state in the midwest, but VC activity in IL pales by comparison with California with 354 deals total $2.93B ($8.28M/deal).
