The United States Of Startups: The Most Well-Funded Tech Startup In Every US State

CB Insights database identified the most-well funded VC-backed technology startups by state based on disclosed equity funding. We excluded funding from debt as well as lines of credit, and only considered companies that have raised at least $1M of equity funding since 2015 to date (1/8/18).

Four states did not have any companies that met all our criteria for inclusion in the map: Alaska, Mississippi, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Companies featured in those four states are the most well-funded private tech companies in these states since 2015.
