Fundraising and Transaction News

 

US$7.5 Billion

That's the amount corporate venture groups invested in a total of 905 deals to high growth startups in 2015. So while the broader market has been a bit shaking as of late, to say the least, the need for new technology seems to be enough to keep this sector of venture funding alive and well. [The Wall Street Journal]

 

US$135+ Million

That's the amount that 27 global startups raised last week alone. This funding amount was based on the startups that publicly disclosed their funding amounts. So, realistically the real number is probably a bit higher. [Inc 42

 

US$585 Billion

That's the collective value that Forbes has estimated the world's 173 Unicorn Companies are worth to date. But, many are hurting, and it's expected that quite a few will fall in 2016, should they be forced up against a bear market. [The Economic Times]

 

$600 Million

That is the amount that China's Qiming Venture Partners has raised towards its $650 million dollar fund. The fund is expected to close today, with funding set to go to Chinese startups in the information technology, heathcare, and clean tech sectors. It's probably worth mentioning that much of the fund's dollars have come form U.S. [MedCityNews

 

8%

That's the disappointing percentage of bay area startups that received Series A funding in 2015 who were led by a female CEO. Unfortunately this is also a 30% decrease from 2014. Explanations on why and how this happened vary, but hopefully we will see these numbers balance out in 2016.  [CrunchBase]

 

 


SecureDocs Virtual Data Room Insights

 

$1.2 Billion
