Venture capital investments on the rise in Colorado

Last month, we wrote about how Colorado was described as one of country’s new hot spots for venture capital after venture capital professionals from across the country met with some of the state’s top entrepreneurs at the Colorado Venture Summit.

New financial data suggests that the description could be right on as the money invested in Colorado’s venture capital deals surged during the second quarter of 2014.

The state saw a slight decrease in the number of venture capital deals from the first quarter to the second quarter of the year, but the amount invested rose from $112.8 million to $150.8 million, according to data from Thomson Reuters. 

A global software industry leader with PricewaterhouseCoopers said the state is seeing a lot of money coming in from private equity as well as traditional venture capital. He said competition for venture capital deals is “creating a lot of high valuations,” which leads to “investments happening earlier in the cycle.”

Now is a booming time for venture capital in Colorado, which is good news for individuals who have a great business idea to test out or a business to expand but who lack the necessary seed capital to do so.

Venture capital is especially important for high-risk businesses that don’t qualify for the traditional business financing available, such as high tech and bio-tech startups.

An experienced business law attorney can help connect these business owners with investors who will put money down on businesses they feel have a chance of returning a big profit.

The role of the attorney is to help create a business plan that complies with tthe requirements of the investors and to carry out the entire deal from start to finish so that the business owners can focus on what they do best.
