Last year, we released a report that examines venture capital investments in Minnesota over the last 21 years. The report draws on data from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and the National Venture Capital Association’s (NVCA) MoneyTree Report, and aims to put Minnesota’s venture capital investments in context and identify industries that stand out from the others. You can find the report here.

Stay tuned for an updated edition of the report, coming late spring/early summer.
