Midwest Health Care Startups Raise $315 Million in First Half of 2011
Date:7/27/2011

CLEVELAND, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Midwest health care startups reported $315 million in total investments across 86 companies in the first half of 2011, according to the BioEnterprise Midwest Health Care Venture Investment Report.(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20101028/DC90488LOGO) "While the number of companies funded remains high and similar to prior years, the total dollars invested is down compared to recent years," said Baiju R. Shah, President & CEO of BioEnterprise.  "This is related to the significant increase in company M&A activity across the Midwest as growth-stage health care firms are increasingly being purchased in strategic transactions rather than pursuing additional financing."

Minnesota led the way in company financings attracting $88 million, followed closely by Ohio whose companies attracted $80 million during the period.  Among regions, Minneapolis, Cleveland, and Madison led the way.

"A bright spot in the report is a significant increase in health care IT & services investing across the region," said Shah.  By sector, the equity funding was as follows:

  • Biopharmaceutical companies: $153 million
  • Medical device companies: $85 million
  • Health care software and service companies: $70 million

  • The Midwest Health Care Venture Investment Report includes all reported numbers and regionally collected data. For complete state and region results across the Midwest see the attached table.
