November 03, 2021, Maryland is on track to top $2 billion worth of venture capital deals in 2021, its highest ever total.
The state had 34 deals totaling almost $400 million in the third quarter of the year, according to the most recent PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor report, which is released quarterly with support from Silicon Valley Bank and Affinity.
Through three quarters of 2021, Maryland has had 134 deals worth about $1.6 billion, the report said. This surpasses the entire amount of venture capital raised in 2020, when companies in Maryland raised about $1.26 billion.
PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor revised some figures it released earlier this year, but Greater Baltimore still appears headed for a record-breaking year.
