As a proudly Seattle-based company, it is getting hard to contain our excitement as Super Bowl XLIX nears. So with the Seahawks preparing to defend their NFL title against the New England Patriots, we decided to break down PE activity in the New England region. Overall deal count in the U.S.'s northeast corner has risen each year since 2009, according to the PitchBook Platform, albeit fairly incrementally since 2011. IT investment has steadily increased by count and share of activity over the past three years, while healthcare has been trending in the other direction.

Massachusetts has seen its share of the region's activity inflate from 49% in 2012 to over 60% in 2014; the state had a 30% jump in deals in that timeframe, driven by the B2B, B2C and IT sectors. Connecticut conversely captured 31% of completed transactions in 2012 but just 22% last year.
