California still attracts a high volume of venture capital (VC) but that money is not reaching the middle class.  We compared California's percentage of national VC and manufacturing investments over the past five years and the data shows there is a large decline in investment in California once companies get to the manufacturing stage of their products. These could be high wage opportunities for our middle class.

California would have an easier task turning early VC dollars into manufacturing scale ups and jobs if we created a more predictable regulatory environment with less litigation and affordable energy.
