Fundraising and Transaction News


$7.5 Billion

That's the amount that U.S. corporate VCs poured into startups last year. Add that to the overall 79% growth of global corporate VC activity since 2011, and it appears that we have a growing trend on our hands. [Mercury News]


$7.65 Billion

That's the amount that VCs have invested into Healthtech since 2010. With a noticeable increase in recent years, this sector of industry is definitely one to watch. So who are the heavy hitters in this arena? New Enterprise Associates, Khosla Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, and Sandbox Ventures top the list. [Pitchbook]  


$1.13 Billion

That's the amount that GGV Capital is planning on raising in order to invest in both U.S. and China based startups in two separate funds. Like it or not China and U.S. based business partnerships are here to stay. [Deal Street Asia]


RS 2,200 Crore

That's how much the 'fund-of-funds' by The Electronic Development Fund (EDF) is willing to invest to aid startups from the electronics and IT sectors to create intellectual property. [Money Control]


$578 Million

That's the amount that Avid Life Media Inc. (which owns the infamous Ashley Madison website) is set to face in a class-action lawsuit that resulted from their 2015 breach. Add this to the multiple lawsuits faced by Target,and several other impending suits aimed at businesses including Home Depot, Nemian Marcus, Excellus, BlueCross Clue Shield (the list goes on) and it's clear that the consequences of not properly securing confidential data can truly be catastrophic.
