Today in Cleantech

How did the global cleantech VC scene fare in Q1 2010? Not too bad. You could even say it was record setting. Last quarter saw 180 deals, beating the 165 deals tallied in Q4 2009. It’s a good sign, but there’s a big caveat buried in the good news. While the number of deals is certainly encouraging, they only add up to $1.9 billion, a full $1 billion less than Q3 2008’s huge haul.
