If you’re located in New York City or the Silicon Valley, venture capital firms are abundant and well covered by the media — you can’t escape them. But entrepreneurs in the Baltimore-D.C. region don’t need to go so far to find a firm that could propel their startup to growth.
The local venture capital community is robust, with dozens of firms that invest in all sorts of industries, from healthcare to fintech to cybersecurity. And it’s part of the reason that in 2016, approximately $1.09 billion was invested in local high-tech startups by VC firms, placing the region in the top 10 funded clusters in the U.S.
Below is a list of more than 60 VC firms in the Maryland-D.C.-Virginia region, including each one’s focus area, what stage it funds and check size, if available. This is a sampling of VC firms in the area — regardless of your business’s industry, you should be able to find the right firm.
