Alien’s $291-million: Top of the VC Pops?

A point I was debating earlier today with a fellow investor: Is Alien the current prize-winner in terms of venture-ish dollars received since 2001? Today’s $33-million round puts the company at $291-million in total invested capital. That’s gotta be good for at least a spot in the top three.
