Life Sciences Venture Capital Investments Soar In Q2 To Highest Level Since 2007, According To The MoneyTree Report
Date:8/25/2014

NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Venture capital (VC) funding for the Life Sciences sector, which includes Biotechnology and Medical Devices, reached $2.5 billion in 195 deals for the second quarter of 2014, according to a new report, "Biotech soars to record high," which includes data from the MoneyTree™ Report from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) LLP and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), based on data provided by Thomson Reuters.

The decrease is due, in part, to the increase in the number of megadeals (investments of $100 million and more) occurring in the Software sector. The average deal size for Life Sciences companies was $12.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 26 percent year-over-year and 35 percent quarter-over-quarter.

"As VCs take advantage of the open initial public offering window and the high valuations in the mergers and acquisitions market to exit, they are putting capital back to work for a new cycle of investments. The competition for dollars among the next generation of life science businesses remains, and businesses looking to attract VC investment need to have comp
