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.


  1. Motricity is in the running.. They may be a close second, but I know they are above $250 now and still going.
    I was their first software engineer(among other things) many moons ago, so much for that stock!

  2. Force10 is “North of $400 million” (!)

  3. Umm… Clearwire?
