Q1 2024 funding: $2.7B across 133 deals

That’s a wrap on Q1 2024, which saw $2.7B in digital health venture funding across 133 deals. For digital health players, it was a quarter of adjusting to new, greater expectations from investors, enterprise customers, and the public markets. Funding deal pace picked up—though check sizes were smaller than in previous years—and investors were on the lookout for friendly deal terms. AI-enabled digital health companies captured 40% of the quarter’s funding dollars, while crowded solution spaces pushed startups to continue proving out their clinical and economic value relative to competitors. Meanwhile, three digital health companies delisted from the NASDAQ or NYSE, recalibrating the sector’s publicly-traded cohort and changing expectations for companies eyeing a public exit. Read our Q1 recap to dive into the quarter’s funding and exit trends.
