$500 Million Raised by 30 Alums in Q3 2016

moneybag_goldcoinsFinovate/FinDEVr alums raised more than $490 million in the third quarter of 2016, essentially matching the investment haul from the previous quarter. The Q3 performance in 2016 fell short of the eye-popping third quarter from 2015, during which more than one billion was invested in our alums. But 2016’s third quarter still dwarfed previous third quarters in 2014 and 2013 by a large margin.

Previous quarterly comparisons

  • Q3 2016: More than $500 million raised by 29 alums
  • Q3 2015: More than $1 billion raised by 40 alums
  • Q3 2014: More than $194 million raised by 17 alums
  • Q3 2013: More than $171 million raised by 23 alums

The biggest equity deal of the third quarter was the $72 million raised by OurCrowd in September. Also notable were the $50+ million in funding scored by Interactions, Ripple, and Finova Financial. The top 10 overall investments for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $380 million or more than 76% of the quarter’s total alum funding.
