I'm looking for a list of biotech companies that have received venture
capital funding (or funding from other sources), particularly in the
range of $100 million and up (though I'd be open to looking at a list
showing any amounts of funding).  I've done extensive internet
research and haven't come up with anything substantial.

Hello ech-ga,

How many companies are you looking for as a satisfactory list? What
search strategy did you use that came up empty-handed? Thanks.

Hello ech-ga,

The Money Tree Survey should meet your needs for developing lists of
biotech companies that received venture funding. You have to register
(free) to access a huge collection of resources. I?ve included a
sampling from the last quarter of 2005 but I suggest that you login
and pursue your investigations according you your personal criteria.

All the best.
