Entrepreneur Magazine, July 2006.
Our VC 100 rankings are based on the number of first-time fundings to companies in the startup and early stages of development made by VC firms and similar entities in calendar year 2005 as measured by the "MoneyTree Report" from PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association, based on data from Thomson Financial.
"VC funding isn't always easy to obtain and and you'll have to give up equity, but when you're a high-growth company with high-financing needs, it can be your best bet."
Venture capital isn't for everyone--not all entrepreneurs need $1 million or more for funding. But for entrepreneurs who want to join the big leagues, a venture capital firm can invest the funds to get you there. Every year, we take the pulse of the venture capital industry to help you determine if now is the right time to seek funding. Our listing ranks VC firms by the number of early-stage deals made in 2005. This year, we've included an additional online listing of firms ranked by later-stage deals and a VC primer that'll show you the ins and outs of this financing option.
