Venture Capital Investments

Many technology-oriented startup firms will need venture capital in order to successfully grow and create significant numbers of new jobs.

Venture capital dollars invested in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area in the 3rd quarter of 2015 year-to-date totaled $725 million, an increase of $202 million over the same period in 2014.
