Xconomy -- The Boston-area pollen count surged in April, but venture financings experienced a more modest increase. New England’s tech and life sciences startups raised a total of $202.9 million in 21 equity-based deals, compared to March’s $194.5 million raised in 17 deals, according to data provided by our partner, private company intelligence platform, CB Insights. (Note, I’m talking here about equity-based deals worth $1 million or more apiece; we’ll round up April’s smaller “under-the-radar” deals a little later on this month.)
