U.S. venture capital firms raised $2.9 billion from 44 funds during the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 33 percent compared to the level of dollar commitments raised during the first quarter of 2013, but equal to the number of funds, according to Thomson Reuters and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA). The dollar commitments raised during the second quarter of 2013 is a 54 percent decline from the levels raised during the comparable period in 2012 and marks the lowest quarter for venture capital fundraising, by dollars, since the third quarter of 2011. The top five venture capital funds accounted for 55 percent of total fundraising during the second quarter of 2013.
