To be fair, the Golden State leads other regions of the U.S. by a sizable margin, but you'd be surprised to see how much activity is going on elsewhere.
California: 21% of deals, 30% of dollars
Great Lakes: 16% of deals, 11% of dollars
New England: 15% of deals, 14% of dollars
Southeast: 12% of deals, 20% of dollars
Mid-Atlantic: 9% of deals, 7% of dollars
Southwest: 9% of deals, 8% of dollars
Northwest: 7% of deals, 2% of dollars
New York: 7% of deals, 6% of dollars
Great Plains: 4% of deals, 2% of dollars
If you dive into the full deck -- though we won't fault you if you skim the infographic -- you'll find that behind the catchall "Internet" sector, which had 39 percent of deals in 2011, is healthcare, with 24 percent. (Mobile and telecom took third, with 10 percent.) And it was healthcare that actually took top billing in terms of dollars, with 37 percent of all investments in 2011.
Go West, young man? Perhaps just go to your nearest angel instead.
