ATV VIII Not Quite Closed

There was a press report last week that Advanced Technology Ventures might have closed its eighth fund with a total of $272 million, based on a regulatory filing. peHUB has also seen the doc, but has reason to think that there's a bit more to come. We spoke yesterday with an ATV spokeswoman, who repeatedly said that she “can't talk about fundraising.” Maybe this is reading too much into that statement, but it sure sounds like the process is ongoing. Moreover, SEC anti-marketing restrictions drop the moment a fund is actually closed.
