Startups across Colorado raised $29.5 million in February.
That’s less than half what startups in the state raised a year ago, when young Colorado companies raised $77 million.
BusinessDen defines a startup as a company that’s 10 years old or less and excludes funds, real estate ventures and publicly traded companies.
Denver-based startups raised $4.4 million, while Boulder startups raised $1.2 million, according to Form Ds filed with the SEC last month. Companies located elsewhere in the state, outside the two tech hubs, raised $23.9 million.
When nonstartups are counted, Colorado companies raised a total of $137.4 million in February, according to filings.
