Venture capitalists funded approximately 612 deals in the second quarter, which is up by 1.5% from the first quarter. The life sciences industry, including biotechnology and medical devices, attracted the most money. Investments in this sector equaled $1.5 billion for 160 deals. This dollar amount is 47% higher than it was in the first quarter.

About PPM

PPM is the leading U.S. entrepreneurial firm that specializes in writing private placement memorandums (PPM) and linking investors with entrepreneurs.

Since 1999, the founders of PPM have provided professional business writing services, such as a PPM or business plan, to more than 2,000 businesses worldwide. Our company is considered to be the most cost effective, efficient consultants for private placement memorandum development in the United States. We are Wall Street’s, and by extension, the New York private placement (PPM) leaders.

PPM.co’s main service is the creation of private placement memorandum regulation d (Reg. d) documents. However, we offer much more. In case the entrepreneur needs additional services, such as a business plan, website, or additional legal work, PPM can create one pricing package for all required documentation or service. Because we simultaneously work with many companies both in and out of the U.S., the ability to adapt to the individual needs – as well as to regional and global demands – helps our clients save needed capital and time.
