The Southeast has seen sustained growth of the industry over the past decade. Venture investment in Southeast Biotech companies nearly tripled in this time frame, from $138 million in 1999 to over $325 million in 2007 (PricewaterhouseCoopers/National Venture Capital Association MoneyTree™ Report based on data from Thomson Reuters). The region has also consistently ranked at least 3rd in the country for the number of public and private Biotech companies. The maturity of our region is also evidenced by its more than 32 public biotechnology companies, up from 22 in 1999 (Ernst & Young's Beyond Borders: The Global Biotechnology Report 1999 and 2008).
