Venture Scanner

How is the funding environment shaping up for health technology in 2019? As we pass the mid-year mark, let's see how the year-to-date metrics compare to the historical trends. The graph below shows health technology total funding by year, stacked by quarters.

Health Technology Funding Over Time

As the graphic demonstrates, health technology has amassed $9.4B through Q1 and Q2 of this year. This amount represents 51% of the total funding in 2018, and 105% of the funding through Q2 in 2018. In addition, the top three funding events in Q2 2019 include a $300M round into Impossible Foods, a $205M round into Collective Health, and a $190M round into Zipline.

A straight-line projection of the completed funding this year would result in $18.9B, which is 103% of the total 2018 funding. On the other hand, a weighted quarterly average projection of 2019 funding would result in $19.3B, which exceeds the total 2018 funding by 5%. Therefore, based on the mid-year data, health technology funding in 2019 is projected to surpass the funding in 2018.
