Here are some more key takeaways from private investing last month:

  • Investors invested more money across debt and equity in January than in December. If investing more in startups is part of your 2024 resolutions, it is definitely the right move!

  • The number of new deals launched this month is declining. This decline is expected given that companies filing now without updated 2023 financials will have to update their financials by April 2023. Therefore, many startups wait until their 2023 financials are up to date before launching a new round.

  • The healthcare and pharmaceutical industry was the industry where investors backed the most Reg CF deals in January. A very successful deal, PSYONIC on StartEngine, just closed this month and raised $626,000 in the last 31 days of its raise.
