Q1 2022 funding recap: $6B raised across 183 deals

Coming off of 2021's $29.1B funding bonanza, the obvious question we’ve been eager to explore: how will 2022 stack up? Even with nine months left to go, it’s clear this year has its own story to tell. Q1 2022 digital health funding closed with $6.0B across 183 deals, and an average deal size of $32.8M. While Q1 isn’t usually a standout quarter for funding overall, in three of the five past years, Q1’s funding beat its preceding quarter—but that isn’t the case this time around. In this quarter’s funding recap, we reflect on the factors impacting funding numbers, digital health’s lagging public market performance, and “hot” clinical innovation areas (there were shake-ups here, too!). Check out the piece for our take on the quarter’s funding trends and what they signal for the rest of 2022.
