Venture Firms Have Strong Fundraising in First Half of 2014

Venture capital funds raised more money and more funds held closings in the first six months of this year than in any first half in at least six years.

The total raised was $17.35 billion, a 53% increase over the first half of 2013, according to Dow Jones LP Source. Early-stage funds helped increase the number of funds closed, but the bulk of the money went to late-stage and multistage funds.
