US Venture Ecosystem: FactBook

How do you quantify a venture capital ecosystem? Analyzing national trends, it's key to note that conditions for investors and founders differ considerably from region to region, producing such disparate pockets of venture capital activity as Silicon Valley or Kendall Square. Many features remain in common, but examining broader trends as generated by a patchwork of VC ecosystems is crucial. At PitchBook, we are cognizant of this relationship, and accordingly are looking to delve into regional trends at greater length in a Venture Ecosystem report series. For the inaugural installment of this series, we have produced our largest report to date: 40+ pages of detailed datasets on venture capital activity since 2010 in each of the top 12 US metro statistical areas (MSAs) for the industry as a whole. Ranging from overall deal flow to tables of the most active investors to breakdowns of domestic vs. outside investor counts, the US Venture Ecosystem: FactBook helps delineate what unites or separates Austin and Atlanta, or Boston and San Diego. In addition, the FactBook contains curated data for each MSA relevant to the venture ecosystem, such as employment levels, rent costs, wage growth and more.

In addition, the report examines activity in three dynamic sectors: information technology, healthcare and energy, drawing on PitchBook datasets to produce analysis of key factors within those spaces.
