If you take a detailed look at Infobrandz’s analysis, it is predicted that in 2023, there could be 375 startup funding deals at growth-level across the globe. This is only a 5% increase from the 394 deals closed in 2022.

Our further findings state that the total state of funding, in 2022, reached $25BN which was $12 Bn in 2020. The year 2021, unobjectionably, was a fantastic year for startup fundraising which crashed down to $25BN in 2022 from $42BN of funding raised in 2021. The total deals counted in 2022 were 354, whereas the total deals from 2014 to 2022 considered were 2.4K.
However, if we look at the fundraising data from 2020 to 2022, we see a significant increase in startup funding in 2022. Startup funding at growth-stage leaped 273% in 2022, compared to the funds raised to $2 Bn in 2020. This is likely because more startups are reaching the growth stage and require more funding to scale.
