This quarter, both January and Feburary funding exceeded $50 million. Most of February’s funding can be attributed to On Deck Capital’s $42 million round.
Over three months, 15 companies raised more than $155 million, This is very similar to last year’s first quarter funding* when we saw a total of 11 companies raise more than $150 million.
Here’s the Q1 summary for 2013:
March — $42 million raised by 4 companies
*While the funding over last year has increased, so has the number of Finovate alums. We’re tracking more than 100 additional companies this year compared to last year.
Note: Funding that companies received before they demonstrated at Finovate was not counted. Questions? Comments? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
