SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Venture-backed company valuations are on the rise for later stage companies - the highest since the peak of the technology bubble of 2000, according to a report by VentureOne.
The median pre-money valuation for US companies is now at $18.5 million in 2006, up from $15 million in 2005.
The survey concluded that the valuation increases were partly due to the increased focus of many venture firms on later stage companies. In healthcare, some think the rising valuations are also a result of big healthcare companies paying to re-stock their depleted drug and device pipelines.
