2020 Proptech Venture Capital
2020 showed the resilience of the proptech venture capital market through the pandemic. According to our deal volume and count estimates, $23.750 billion was invested across 425 proptech companies, a 24.7% decrease in venture capital funding, globally.
Newly Founded Companies
Globally, newly founded companies in real estate technology and the built world have declined by approximately 41.53% (2016-2019). While innovation is flourishing throughout the industry, many venture capital investors and financial sponsors of technology have chosen not to invest in untested technologies, and instead channel cash into already backed companies. The resulting impact is the decline in newly formed companies, specifically in the angel and seed stage.
Funding in Female Founded Companies
Global venture funding in female-founded real estate tech (proptech) companies increased by 18.3% in 2020. Weekly Proptech data shows $470 million was invested across 61 female-founded or female-led startups, globally. Throughout the year, the pace of venture capital investing noticeably increased to record-setting heights, surpassing 2019 deal and dollar volume totals. Deposit a declining trendline across the greater real estate tech ecosystem, venture capital investments in female founded real estate tech continues to be an area of opportunity for investors.
