money_invest_flow

As July drew to a close, fundings continued at a brisk pace with 26 new fundings during the week ending July 22. However, it  was slightly less than the average of 28 fintech deals per week this year.

The total amount raised this week was $532 million. More than half ($325 million) were debt commitments to two alt-lenders, CommonBond ($300 million) and West Creek Financial ($25 million). Total equity raised this week was $207 million, including $23 million to Finovate alum Capriza (F15) in a round led by Andreessen Horowitz

The total number of deals YTD stands at 818, nearly double last year’s 429. Total dollars raised YTD is $18.6 billion, double the $9.3 billion raised during the same period a year ago.
