Major venture capital deals were slow in the first six months of 2020, but the startup investment market has more than recovered with its strongest third quarter ever.

In the third quarter (July, August and September), 14 Minnesota startups raised $600 million in venture capital, according to the PricewaterhouseCoopers/CB Insights MoneyTree Report. That figure is the largest part of the $782 million local startups have raised through October, the report said.
