EdTech started the last decade with $500m of Venture Capital investments in 2010 and finished 14x higher at $7B in 2019. Through COVID, EdTech attracted $8.3B of VC through the first three quarters of 2020, setting the sector up for a record-setting full year.
Q1 included a giant $1B Yuanfudao round and $400M of ByJu’s funding. Q2 was slower with Zuoyebang closing $750m in last few days of the quarter. By Q3, ByJu’s had closed another $500m, Zhangmen $400m and VIPThink $200m.
$11.4B of EdTech Venture Funding for 1H 2022.A moderate slow-down would deliver around $17B+ for the full year.
Climate Tech set a record half with $26.8B in venture funding in 968+ deals. Q2 has slowed quite significantly, we expect $40B+ for the full year.
Funding continues to flow in the first half of 2022 with $49.7B growth capital for health firms, despite a correction for digital and concerns around falling valuations.
