Jumpstart Foundry: Tennessee’s Most Active VC
Jumpstart Foundry takes the cake once again as Tennessee’s most active venture capital firm as reported by CB Insights in January 2020. Tennessee is not the largest state, however it does have a mighty impact on the healthcare industry. We’re proud to be in the center one of the fastest-growing healthcare hubs in the US with over 100 portfolio companies and counting!
The map shared by CB Insights shows the top VC investing in tech companies in each state, from Andreessen Horowitz in California to Lerer Hippeau in New York.
Although startups based in California, New York and Massachusetts have traditionally accounted for the majority of VC tech investment in the US, VCs are spurring other hotbeds of innovation across the country in areas like Nashville, Denver and Chicago.
The analysis excludes debt deals and only considers venture capital, corporate venture capital, super angel and growth equity firms. The selection is based on which VC had made equity investments in the greatest number of tech startups located in a certain state from 2014 to 2020 YTD (1/9/2020).
