The venture landscape is constantly shifting. New startups and ideas continue to change the way we think about the future of technology. We are attempting to keep track of these changes by taking a weekly look into venture investment across CrunchBase categories.

This week it was healthcare that made the biggest jump, led by venture rounds from SancilioNeograft and DICOM Grid. The eight venture rounds totalling $38.45M far surpassed the $5.35M raised over three rounds last week. Software startups recorded the most funding rounds over the last seven days, including a $70M round for AppDynamics. The 33 total rounds this week is up from the 29 during the week prior.

Travel startups cooled down after seven companies (from six different countries) were funded last week including a notable $80M Series B for FXTrip, based in China. Just three travel startups were funded this week, for a total of only $3.37M.

Mobile had a big week due mainly to the $300M first round of funding for Chinese Android phone manufacturer Meizu. The $380.26M invested in mobile startups this week led all markets, and included international (and creatively named) startups like tado°, fypio and Jinn.
