"Firms should understand how these trends impact them, prepare for them, and where possible, help shape them."

Key regional findings

  • Despite the crisis, venture capital raised in the US reached US$4.4 billion in 2008 -- the second-highest total in history, behind only the record US$5.5 billion raised in 2007.

Europe

  • Revenues of European public biotechs increased 17% to euro 11.2 billion.
