Sector And Investment Trends To Watch: Healthcare Report

To emphasize some of the details shared in the Software Equity Group’s 2021 Annual Report, the State Of Healthcare Report: Investment & Sector Trends To Watch, by CB Insights, features updates on global healthcare funding, M&A deals, partnership activity, and technology that are gaining traction.


  1. Global healthcare funding hit a new record in 2020. A total of $80.6B in equity funding was raised across 5.5K+ deals. North America, Asia, and Europe all saw a boost in funding year-over-year (YoY). There were 187 healthcare mega-rounds ($100M+) in 2020, a new record.
  2. Funding grew for the third consecutive quarter. Despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, funding trended up each quarter since Q1’20. However, Q4’20 deal activity declined by 13% quarter-over-quarter (QoQ).
  3. Early-stage deal share dropped off in Q4’20. The proportion of healthcare deals going to early-stage companies steadily declined since Q3’19. This trend continued in Q4’20 with mid- and late-stage deals increasing their share.
