Venture Ranking Released

Russia came in fourth among European countries in a ranking of venture capital investment in 2012 compiled by Dow Jones VentureSource, Interfax reported.

Overall venture capital investment in Europe slumped 9 percent to 4.4 billion euros in 2012, and the number of venture projects fell  11 percent from 2011.

Britain led the rankings in 2012, followed by Germany, France and the Netherlands. Russia has demonstrated exceptional growth in the amount of venture capital investment in recent years.

Such investment in Russia amounted to just 5 million euros in 2006, VentureSource said. The figure grew to 26 million euros in 2009, 38 million euros in 2010 and 237 million euros in 2011.

VentureSource said a number of major deals were excluded from the calculations, particularly deals in the semiconductor field, because their number was small.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
