Companies in the region reeled in $1.54 billion in venture capital funding in 2013, the highest amount since 2001. As executive director of the Mid-Atlantic Venture Association, Julia Spicer can claim some credit for that flashy figure.
Spicer’s group represents venture-capital firms, angel investors, growth-equity firms and entrepreneurs in the region. Her mission is to convince more of those firms to invest in companies in the mid-Atlantic. She’s also working to encourage strategic corporate investors like Millennial Media and Genacast Ventures, which partners with Comcast Ventures, the venture capital arm of Comcast Corp., to make more investments here.
