The final FUNDED for 2021

Welcome to the final edition of FUNDED for 2021, our sixth, rounding out H1 of FY22.

On our preliminary scan of December to date (we are closing off early for Christmas) we have captured 66 funding events including 60 Private/VC raises totalling over $1.4 Billion, the third month in FY22 which has seen private/VC funding exceed $1 Billion (September was by far the biggest month with over $1.8b). Even noting that our data for December is only preliminary, we have captured $6.18b for H1 of FY22 compared to the $4.26b we captured during the entirety of FY21.

We will be undertaking further analysis of our data for H1 FY22 which will be published in early 2022.

November FUNDED revisited…. In the last edition of FUNDED we reported 55 funding events in our preliminary review, which after further research and review we lifted that number to to 119 funding events including 61 private investments, which raised a total of $867m. There was a megaround we noticed for Simpro who raised $486m. that deal did not make it into our data due to company's age (19 years). Those funding events have been added to the Techboard database, along with new company, investor and founder profiles, bringing Techboard’s tallies to the end of October to 4203 funding events, 4582 Companies, 1671 funders and investors and 40191 company founders.
