Following the economic uncertainty in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, venture capital raises in the AECO technology space boomed in 2021, posting record highs of total raised capital. In total, we at BuiltWorlds logged more than 160 capital raises in 2021, amounting to nearly $5.4 billion. The total capital raised in 2021 is roughly 3.6 times greater than that in 2020, which was $1.5 billion. As AECO technology investing is still in its early phase, we at BuiltWorlds expect AECO technology funding to continue its rapid growth well into the future. Take a look below for the specific deals, as well as information on active investors, funding round size, and spending by category.
