The week following a seven-day span in which three deals closed was a return to normalcy for the Georgia venture capital markets — no new deals.
Three companies had closed on more than $27 million last week alone, pushing Georgia to 22 deals and $133 million for the year. The average of $6 million per deal is 40 percent less than deals closed a year ago.
Georgia also remains far off the pace of 2002 in deals done and amount closed. Through the first seven months last year, 35 deals were closed for $361 million.
