Venture Capital Funding Survey, First Quarter 2014

VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDING, FIRST QUARTER 2014
This is a listing of many of the Bay Area firms that received venture capital financing between
Jan. 1 and March 31, 2014. Most of the data was compiled from a survey conducted by
PricewaterhouseCoopers, Thomson Venture Economics and the National Venture Capital Association
in conjunction with the Mercury News.
In the case of some investments there may have been other participants in the round who are not
credited. Also, the amounts listed may not include all venture funding the company received during
the quarter.
*Indicates this is a seed or first-round infusion of money from venture capitalists. These
companies may have received money previously from other investors and aren't necessarily startups.
