					Venture Capital Funding Survey, First Quarter 2011

VENTURE CAPITAL FUNDING FIRST QUARTER 2011
This is a listing of many of the Bay Area firms that received venture capital financing from
Jan. 1 to March 31, 2011. Most of the data was compiled from a survey conducted by
PricewaterhouseCoopers, Thomson Venture Economics and the National Venture Capital Association in
conjunction with the Mercury News.

For some investments, there may have been other participants in the round who are not
credited. Also, the amounts listed may not include all venture funding the company received during
the quarter.

*Indicates a seed or first-round infusion of money from venture capitalists. These
companies may have received money previously from other investors and aren't necessarily startups.
