After a brief flurry in the middle of the month, Georgia ended June with a whimper, failing to close a venture deal during a week for the ninth time since March.

Through the first half of 2003, the state has posted 17 deals for about $86 million … not even in the same ballpark as the $346 million 33 technology companies brought in during the first six months of 2002.
