Significant Growth Through Q4 2021
Online startup investing has clearly become more popular, and the amount raised by companies has increased. The first quarter of 2018 ended with just 128 new raises, while quarter one in 2021 ended with 261 new raises. In just three years, the number of new raises occurring in the first quarter more than doubled. Growth in the amount of money raised from the beginning of 2018 to first quarter 2021 is similarly astonishing. Nearly $15.5 million was invested in early 2018. In the beginning of 2021, we saw capital raised increase to an amazing $112.8 million – a 627% increase in the amount of money raised.
