Fundraising and Transaction News


$12.5 Billion

That's the total worth of the 860 FinTech investment deals across the globe last year. With big players like Sequoia Capital doing 15 deals including Stripe, Seedcamp doing 15 deal including Transferwise, and Techstars doing the most pre-series A deals (15 globally), the FinTech trend isn't going anywhere. [Computer Business Review]


$25-$30 Million & $200 Million

Those are the increments that Trimantium Capital is prepared to give to multiple fintech and health tech startups from across the U.S., Israel and China. This UK & Australian born firm is certainly not afraid to spread their wealth across the globe. [Forbes]



That's the percentage of total deals in 2015 that involved the software industry. And, while the software deals didn't make the top two industries from a valuation perspective, one thing is clear-there is still a lot of interest in software startups, they just are not thought to be quite as valuable as some of the other industries to investors as of late. [Fenwick]


£2.5 Million

That's the amount that Arcis Biotechnology raised from its existing shareholders and a few new investors. Now worth £15 million, the company plans to continue to commercialize its R&D-led portfolio of products. [Echo]


¥140 Billion

That's the amount that Japanese venture companies raised from investors last year. This puts them up 10% year-over-year, and they continue to be popular with investors lately, which has allowed this group of businesses to recover to pre 2008 levels. [Nikkei Asian Review]
