One of my favorite things to do at the beginning of a new month is to take a look at how much was invested online in startups over the previous month. Throughout 2020, the total kept increasing month by month. That’s held steady into this year too. But I had my doubts about February. It’s a short month, after all. Would investors have enough time to find startups they liked and wanted to invest in? Would the deal flow slow down?
Well, it turns out that I shouldn’t have worried at all! The total amount invested for February was more than $33 million! That blows January’s $29 million out of the water. And it’s nearly triple what we saw in February of last year to boot! That’s some amazingly rampant growth. The democratization of startup investing is happening right now. And it’s only getting better from here.
