Washington-area companies drew nearly $350 million in venture capital during the first three months of the year, the highest first-quarter total since 2001, despite turbulence in the stock market and a slowdown in initial public offerings.
In all, 38 local businesses secured $346.38 million in first-quarter funding, a 3 percent increase from the same quarter last year, according to a report released Friday by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association, with data by Thomson Reuters.
