"Overall, Midwest healthcare investment activity reflects the nation-wide decrease in healthcare investing; however, Midwest investment remains strong, outpacing 2009 and 2010 in investment dollars attracted. In addition, greater numbers of Midwest healthcare companies received funding in 2013 than in any of the previous 5 years," said Aram Nerpouni, President & CEO of BioEnterprise. "The Midwest has developed a robust pipeline of high quality companies."

By sector, the 2013 equity funding was allocated as follows:

  • Medical device companies: $423 million (59%)
  • Biopharmaceutical companies: $183 million (25%)
  • Healthcare IT and service companies: $117 million (16%)

"The Midwest, in contrast to other parts of the country, remains strong in the medical device sector; in addition, the healthcare IT sector is showing signs of steady growth, with increasing numbers of companies funded each year," said Nerpouni.  "We anticipate an ever-growing pipeline of companies, primarily in the medical device sector and followed by healthcare IT."
