“2020 Cyber Security Startup Funding Analytics”
Nearly 550 global cyber security vendors and suppliers received early stage funding in 2020. Overall funding amounted to $2.38 billion, with the largest amount raised being $123 million. This compares to nearly 1200 firms in 2019, sharing a considerably larger $2.6 billion, with the largest raise in 2019 being $200 million
50% of all funding decisions ended up delivering investment to organisations in North America (182). This is a long standing trend. The second region behind North America was Europe with 29.7% (108) followed by Asia with 11.8% (43).
