The Engine and PitchBook, a leading provider of VC, PE, and M&E data, recently partnered to produce a report on the 2019 Tough Tech landscape. Spanning multiple segments from robotics & drones to agtech, the report investigates the surge in venture funding of Tough Tech. Its insights were based on analyses of comprehensive datasets derived from the PitchBook platform and provide unbiased perspectives on the past, present, and future of the sector. These datasets are comprised, in particular, of over 4,000 Tough Tech companies that have received over $105 billion in funding since the start of 2015. The steady increase in aggregate deal value and deal count since 2012 bodes well for future growth in Tough Tech. Exciting days ahead!
