Wisconsin Has VC Cheddar in the Bank, Healthcare Extra Sharp
April 8, 2013
Wisconsin may be known as “America’s Dairyland,” but the Midwestern state produces much more than milk and cheese. In fact, of the 191 completed, Wisconsin-based VC deals in the PitchBook Platform, the vast majority fall into the Healthcare industry, which makes up a whopping 43% of all venture deals in the state. 2009 was an especially hot year for Healthcare, as more than 61% of the year's Wisconsin-based deals were in that sector. IT is another strong force in Wisconsin, clocking in at 22% (although its share of the yearly deal flow has fallen quite a bit since 2010), followed by B2B with 15% and B2C with 11%.
