The Top six industries according to VCdeal

Internet 39 fundings with average amount of 7.5M

Software 32 fundings with average amount of 9M

Pharmaceuticals 26 fundings with average amount of 31M

Medical Devices 24 fundings with average amount of 15.6M

Biotech 19 fundings with average amount of 21M

Media 18 fundings with average amount of 18M

Internet, software and media should be no surprise based on the feeding frenzy of M&A in those related sectors for content. California, Massachusetts and New York among the top three states respectively. Startup Addict has an interesting feature on the home page called “Top Startup Industries” which depicts which industries are getting the most attention, funding and requests across the entire startup social network. It will be interesting to see how some of the smaller investments and angel funding match up with the larger VC industry statistics above. Throwing out a wild guess, I suspect Internet, software and media would be the Top 3 with the bootstrapping and seed crowd in the current startup climate.
