Figures recently released as part of the PwC/National Venture Capital Association MoneyTree Report have showed that despite the turmoil in the global financial markets, US venture capital investing remained within historical norms in the third quarter of 2008.

The report revealed that venture capitalists invested USD7.1bn in 907 deals, but that third quarter investment activity was down 7% from the second quarter of 2008, when USD7.7bn was invested in 1,033 deals, and down 9% compared to funding the same time last year.

The third quarter saw ongoing interest in the Cleantech and Life Sciences sectors while Seed/Early stage deals accounted for 39% of total deal volume, according to PwC.

Investments in later stage deals dropped 14%, with USD2.8bn going into 294 deals and accounting for 32% of total deal volume, according to the survey. In the second quarter of 2008, USD3.3bn went into 334 deals.

The MoneyTree Report additionally showed that in the third quarter 2008, most active US venture investors closed eight or more deals. Of the 2,227 transactions reported in the third quarter, the most active firms accounted for 450, or 20% of total deals completed in the quarter.
