1,160 Venture Deals Around the World Raise $10.3 Billion; Europe Sees Growth After Record Low; China Sees Record Healthcare Investment.

Venture capitalists from around the world invested $10.3 billion in 1,160 deals for companies based in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Israel, Mainland China and India. This represents a 29% increase in capital invested and a 14% rise in deals over the $8 billion invested in 1,022 deals during same period last year.

North America: U.S. Sees Strongest Quarter Since Recession; Deal Activity Picks Up for Canadian Companies

Venture investors put $7.7 billion to work in 744 deals for U.S.-based companies during the second quarter of 2010. This is the highest quarterly total for capital invested since $8.4 billion was put into 699 deals during the third quarter of 2008.

Venture-backed companies in Canada raised $114 million for 19 deals in the second quarter of 2010. This marks an increase in deals but a slight drop in capital raised from the same period last year when 15 deals garnered $120 million. The majority of investment went to Information Technology (IT) companies, which raised $71 million for nine deals.

Europe: Growth Returns After Record Low a Year Ago

Venture investors put $1.4 billion (euro 1.1 billion) into 289 deals for European companies during the second quarter of 2010, a 40% increase in investment from the year-ago period which saw record low investment levels.

In Europe, the IT industry, which bore the brunt of the venture market's losses during the economic downturn, was the star performer in the most recent quarter. IT companies raised $428 million (euro 334 million) for 90 deals and garnered 31% of the region's venture investment. Taking 30% of the region's investment, the Healthcare industry grew by 50% to $417 million (euro 317 million) for 65 deals.

Asia: Record Healthcare Investment in China; Services are Biggest Draw in India

Venture investment in Mainland China during the second quarter of 2010 rose 52% over the same period last year to $689 million for 58 deals. Capital invested, however, was still well below levels seen in 2008, when the second quarter saw $1.8 billion put into 96 deals. In China, the Healthcare industry saw an unprecedented $125 million put into seven deals during the most recent quarter.

In India, venture capitalists invested $182 million in 23 deals, almost double the $95 million put into 15 deals during the same period last year. The Services industries were the big winners as Business & Financial Services companies collected $81 million for 10 deals and the Consumer Services industry garnered $61 million for six deals.

Israel: Investment Jumps Despite Drop in Deal Activity

In the second quarter of 2010, investors put $220 million into 27 deals for Israel-based companies. While this represents a 21% drop in deal activity from the year-ago period, capital invested jumped 57% thanks to a trend toward more capital-intense second- and later-stage rounds.

Deals Sizes in Asia Spike

Mainland China and India saw the greatest increases in median deal sizes. In China, the median deal size jumped 59% to $10 million. In India, the $8.7 million year-to-date median was more than double the $3.9 million median seen in 2009.

The median deal sizes in North America were essentially flat. The U.S. saw a median of $4.9 million, a slight decrease from the $5 million median in the year-ago period. Canada's median deal size was $4.8 million, the same as the 2009 median.

Europe's median deal size was the smallest of any region, with $2.7 million (euro 2.1 million) in the most recent quarter. In Israel, the median deal size rose to $4 million, from $3.5 million in the year-ago period.
