Curious to know who the frontrunners are in the venture race this year? A quick search in the PitchBook Platform reveals the nitty gritty details! Spanning 346 transactions, a total of 344 companies have received venture backing since the beginning of 2013. An industry breakdown shows that IT companies are gobbling up the lion’s share of this year’s VC funding, representing over 51% of the total capital invested. This is due in large part to two separate $150 million deals for software companies Box and SevOne. Healthcare is coming in in second place, making up 22% of the total capital invested, and B2C companies represent 17%.
