VC Investing On The Rise

US venture capital investing stats are in for the first half of 2006 [Ernst & Young/VentureOne].

The good news is that the investment quantum is at its highest since 2001 and a 13% increase on 2005: $12.97 billion was placed into 1,213 companies.

Information-technology investments rose 8%, while health-care investments grew a whopping 25%.

This augurs well for the tech space.
