The final numbers are still being tallied, but one thing is already clear: 2021 was a record-breaking year for venture capital fundraising in Maryland. The BBJ reported earlier this year that Maryland companies only needed three quarters to raise about $1.6 billion, surpassing the $1.26 billion raised in all of 2020, according to figures provided by the PitchBook-NVCA Venture Monitor report. The Greater Baltimore area was on the cusp of shattering its record, too, with more than $500 million in VC funding as of September.
