CrunchBase Monthly Export – August Edition

September 9, 2014

The August CrunchBase Monthly is now out! During the August ‘summer break’, 2.4k investment rounds were added to the database, totalling $3.7 billion. The CrunchBase community also added 19.5k new profiles.  With a month left in Q3 2014, angel and seed rounds are only half of what they were in Q3 2013.

Highlights of the August 2014 Export include:

    • Acquisition of Twitch.tv (formerly Justin.tv) by Amazon for $970 million cash
    • The lead investor was 500 startups investing in 29 startups; Sequoia Capital came in second with 13 rounds
    • The SF Bay Area received $16.9 million in 149 rounds out of 551 rounds in the US this month
    • There were 922 seed rounds, the 3rd highest month of the year trailing May with 1,426 seed rounds, and March at 1,383

The CrunchBase dataset continues to grow at a record pace thanks to our community of contributors and members of the CrunchBase Venture Program. We’re publishing this monthly export today which includes all venture funded companies.
