Colorado Increases VC Dollars in 2005

It was an impressive 2005 for companies raising venture capital in Colorado. In 2004 total dollars raised was $386.3 million, while 2005 saw a dramatic increase by some 40%, totaling $647.2 million raised (data from Ernst & Young LLP and VentureOne Quarterly Venture Capital Report). Colorado surpassed the U.S. trend numbers; where $22.13 billion in total VC investments (in 2,239 deals) represented only a 2% increase over 2004 in capital invested nationally.

Detailed Company and VC listings for 4Q05 will be posted by PricewaterhouseCoopers on February 6th. Please email me if you are interested in reviewing this data when releasd and I will gladly forward it.
