    About Venture Capital investments by industry in Jan 2014, we have data of a total of 369 companies and VC/private equity firms that raised funds. Unfortunately some of them are very secretive and don’t share the amounts, but luckily most are happy to share the details with us.

    Companies/firms are divided into 37 industries, albeit there is overlapping in many cases. Some industries, such as legal and nanotech, are represented by only one company, but others by many more. The five most represented industries:

    Software (16.8%)

    Finance (9.8%)

    Health (8.4%)

    Biotech (8.4%)

    Ecommerce (6.8%)

    Surprised that mobile is not on the list? Well it is in 7th place (4.3%), with View leading the way with $100M raised.
