Regulatory Technology Funding Over Time

As the graphic demonstrates, regtech has amassed $2.9B through Q1 and Q2 of this year. This amount represents 138% of the total funding in 2018, and 322% of the funding through Q2 in 2018. The top three funding events in Q2 2019 include a $500M round into Kaseya, a $300M round into KnowBe4, and a $130M round into Druva.

A straight-line projection of the completed funding this year would result in $5.9B, which is 275% of the total 2018 funding.
