2024 half-year funding: $5.7B across 266 deals

Digital health founders and investors are a resilient and adaptable bunch, and H1 2024 showed fruits of their labor. $5.7B was deployed across 266 digital health startup raises in the first half of the year, meaning 2024 could potentially outperform 2023 if investment pace holds. Emerging startups and AI solutions commanded funders’ attention—with early-stage deals (Seed, Series A, and Series B) accounting for 84% of labeled raises, and 34% of total sector funding going to startups leveraging artificial intelligence. The prevalence of unlabeled fundraises also started to taper, suggesting a return to more standard venture patterns with fewer “exceptional” measures needed. Read our H1 2024 funding recap to digest the past six months of digital health investments, public exits, acquisitions, and more.
