The Silicon Valley Venture Capital Almanac
2
We’ve had a front row seat to the rapid pace of growth in the
innovation sector in the Bay Area for 30 years. Working with some of
the most exciting companies and their investors in business today,
we’re thrilled and honored to play a role in strengthening the
environment for dynamic, innovative companies in the Bay Area and
around the world.
Technology and entrepreneurship is in the Bay Area’s DNA and the
region continues to attract talented and innovative startups and
entrepreneurs. The data presented in this report reflects our
experience and what we see on a day to day basis. Silicon Valley
continues to dominate the attention of tech investors and in 2013 is
on pace for a five-year high in venture capital deal and funding
activity.
Q3 2013 was the strongest quarter in Silicon Valley tech investment
since 2009, buoyed by huge deals for Uber, Palantir and Pure
Storage. The Internet sector continues to lead in terms of deal share,
but the mobile sector is on pace for a record high, taking nearly 1 in
every 5 deals in Silicon Valley in 2013 YTD.
We’re seeing an increase in new company formation nationally and
innovation and entrepreneurship are responsible for creating new
opportunities, jobs and wealth in every global location where SVB
has an office.
Companies in the Bay Area will still face challenges, such as finding
enough engineers; and there will always be the ups and downs of
business cycles, but we’re confident this is still one of the best areas
in the world to build and grow a company. The global technology
sector is growing, yet the Bay Area continues to be the hub.
Sincerely,
Bob Blee
Silicon Valley Bank, Palo Alto

Orrick is pleased to co-sponsor CB Insights’ Silicon Valley Tech
Venture Capital Almanac. We are confident that you will find the SV
Tech VC Almanac to be a valuable resource in assessing trends in the
Silicon Valley venture community.
The Almanac contains an array of interesting data points, but there
are a few particular points that we wanted to highlight. First, the third
quarter of 2013 witnessed the highest number of deals and dollars
invested in Silicon Valley-based tech startups since 2009. Second,
both seed and late-stage deal share are growing. Indeed, it is not only
a good time to be forming new companies, but also a good time to be
sustaining and scaling existing businesses. Finally, mobile venture
capital deals continue to grow, accounting for nearly 20% of deals in
Silicon Valley thus far in 2013 and on pace to reach their highest
annual deal total since 2009.
As you will see in the Almanac, the Silicon Valley venture community
is strong and continues to grow. Over $31.5 billion has been invested
into Silicon Valley-based tech startups since 2009, and Silicon Valley
continues to dominate the attention of tech investors. Orrick is
extremely proud to be a part of this community.
Sincerely,
John V. Bautista
Partner, Emerging Companies group, Silicon Valley

Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG) proudly supports the Silicon Valley
Venture Capital Almanac.
GLG started in 1998 in a one room office in New York and has been
through the ups and downs that most startups face. That is why we
recently launched GLG Share (www.glgshare.com), an easy way for
startups to build relationships with our membership – made up of
over 350,000 academics, executives, and policy experts – covering
every major industry and spanning the globe.
Since we started, our mission has been to transform the way the
world’s leading professionals gather and share expertise. In the
fifteen years since then, we have opened new offices – including
several in Silicon Valley – and facilitated over 1.5 million teaching and
learning projects.
Though our reach is truly global, the CB Insights data supports our
view that the fastest and most innovative growth is coming from
startups. As this report illustrates, since 2009, investors have
pumped more than $31.5B into Silicon Valley-based technology
startups and 2013 (which has been witness to huge deals) is shaping
up to be a five-year high in VC deal and funding activity.
That’s why we partner with numerous venture firms and their
portfolio companies as well as directly with growth companies, via
GLG Share. And that’s why we at GLG endeavor to build the richest
and most collaborative community of expertise for entrepreneurs to
support their growth.
Sincerely,
Alexander Saint-Amand
CEO

activity has occurred recently.
These are investors who invest

Andreessen Horowitz looks at companies across all stages and will invest as little as $50,000 and and as much as $50
million in a company per the firm. The fund expects to do many seed-stage investments in the hundreds of thousands of
dollars. Per the firm, they are open to participating in a variety of investment structures including buying founder shares,

expect to participate on company Boards generally only when they've invested more than $5M. In terms of investment
criteria, Andreessen Horowitz expects to fund startups that (1) attack a large market, (2) have a technical founder who
intends to be CEO and (3) in the domain of computer science and information technology. Specifically, the firm will
consider the following areas: (1) consumer internet, (2) business internet (SaaS / Cloud Computing), (3) mobile software
and services, (4) software-powered consumer electronics, (5) infrastructure and applications software, (6) networking, (7)
storage databases and (8) other back-end systems. Geographically, Andreessen Horowitz is primarily interested in

design, medical devices), nanotech, movie production companies, consumer retail, electric cars, rocket ships, space
elevators.

CrunchFund is an early stage venture capital firm founded in 2011 by Michael Arrington, the founder and editor of
TechCrunch, and Patrick Gallagher who formerly worked at Vantage Point Venture Partners. The Crunchfund's inaugural
fund of $20 million was established to invest in information technology companies at any stage with a primary focus on
seed and early stage investments. The firm's first fund was raised in September of 2011. Investors in the CrunchFund
are reported to include AOL, Accel Partners, Austin Ventures, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Redpoint Ventures,
Sequoia Capital, the individual founding partners of Andreessen Horowitz, as well as the general partners of Benchmark
Capital, Ron Conway of SV Angel, Yuri Milner of DST and Kevin Rose, founder of Digg. The fund's beginning in
September 2011 was shrouded in controversy given the associations between Michael Arrington, TechCrunch and AOL.
There was significant commentary at the time of the launch that suggested that the editorial independence of
TechCrunch and hence AOL, its parent, would be compromised if they are investing in companies which TechCrunch
covers. Michael Arrington formerly invested individually as an angel investor in companies. Arrington's past investments
as an angel investor can be seen in the investor profile under his name - Michael Arrington.

alongside other angels or venture capital firms. From an industry perspective, Floodgate seeks technology ventures in

capital efficient companies. Geographically, Floodgate seeks to invest in firms that are geographically based in the San
