CrunchBase Monthly Investment Map
Investors may be taking time off in some countries, but global venture deals continue rolling in at a steady pace.
So far in July, CrunchBase has captured over $5.8 billion in venture fundings across the globe. U.S.-based companies raised over $3.1 billion in 478 deals.
Chinese companies raised nearly $1 billion in 27 venture deals. Smartphone maker Meizu took in $300 million in a massive Series A round.
Other notably large international rounds this month include two $100 million Series C+ rounds – one for Paris-based car sharing network BlaBlaCar and another for Shanghai-based luxury products platform Secoo.
In the U.S., San Francisco led the way in number of deals and amount raised, in part thanks to Box’s $150 million growth round that will delay its IPO a little while longer. SF Bay Area-based companies have raised over $720 million in venture funding this month alone.
