Fueling a million little (a few not so little) tech startups, venture capital had its single largest quarter in more than a decade. Alltold, U.S. venture capitalists put $8 billion into 812 deals
in the second quarter of 2012, AllThingsD reports, citing new data from CB Insights. “Factors like the greater American economy and the bumpy tech IPO market don’t necessarily have a
direct and/or timely correlation with venture capital spending,” AllThingsD notes. Quarter-over-quarter, funding was up 37%.
