Q3 funding bonanza drives largest annual deal volume ever

Another way that 2020 is unlike any other year: it is already the largest funding year ever for digital health—and we still have three months to go. Investors pumped $4B into US-based digital health startups in Q3 alone, bringing the total haul so far this year to $9.4B across 311 deals—handily exceeding the former largest annual sum of $8.2B in 2018. And more than ever, it's the mega deals driving the top-line numbers: so far in 2020, 24 digital health companies have raised more than $100M.

Dig into our just-released Q3 Digital Health Market Insights Report for a deep dive on the data and more of the trends we're observing as we look ahead to the future of healthcare.
