The pandemic and resulting economic toll has presented challenging headwinds for startups. In this post we look back on Q2 ending funding trends for security technology startups to determine the trajectory of innovation in this emerging technology sector.
Below we see that the number of funding events per quarter has been on a slight downward trend, with 66 deals closing in Q2. This implies that new innovations in the security technology sector are somewhat slowing down as measured by the volume of disruptive companies attracting investments.
That said, below we can see that for the companies that are getting financed, the average funding per deal has been on a general upward trend with an average deal size of $38M in Q2. This implies that the market is bullish on the traction and growth potential of these security technology startups.
