These 14 Orlando firms raised the most venture capital so far in 2019

In the first three quarters of 2019, 20 metro Orlando companies raised $133.7 million in venture capital, with just $2 million of that by six companies in third-quarter 2019 — the lowest amount raised here this year, according to PitchBook, a Seattle-based financial data company, and the National Venture Capital Association, a Washington D.C.-based advocacy group for venture capital. 

Eight local companies raised $26.8 million in first-quarter 2019 and six companies raised $104.9 million in second-quarter 2019. This matches a national trend, as U.S. companies raised $28.2 billion in venture capital for third-quarter 2019, down from $34.1 billion in second-quarter 2019, according to PitchBook’s Venture Monitor report.
