  17. 17. | PRESENTATION Ⓒ 2013 ROCK HEALTH SUMMARY FINDINGS of Funding of digital health companies continued to grow overall, totaling $849M in the first half of 2013. Funding in the first half of 2013 represents 12% growth in investment and 25% growth in deals YoY. For comparison, overall VC funding in the first quarter of 2013 (latest data available) is down 6% YoY (source: PwC MoneyTree). Additionally, venture funding of traditional healthcare continues to decline, medical device funding is down 29% and biotech is down 2%; software is up 38% (source: PwC MoneyTree). 90 digital health companies each raised more than $2 million dollars in the first half of 2013. Of these companies, 31% are located in California, nearly double that of the next two states combined, Massachusetts (9%) and New York (8%). Four investors made three or more digital health investments in the first half of 2013. The Social+Capital Partnership led the way with five digital health investments, followed closely by Norwest. There were no co-investments by these two firms, demonstrative of a divergent focus in digital health investing among the most active investors. 146 identified investors participated in 1-2 deals each. With few seed investors ($250K-$1M range), crowdfunding has become an attractive option for digital health entrepreneurs. There were a total of 38 digital health campaigns across Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Medstartr, and Fundable. Over $4.5M was raised through completed or continuing crowdfunding campaigns in the first half of 2013. The top six campaigns represented 75% of all crowdfunding dollars raised in the first half of 2013. About 40% of campaigns that closed in the first half of 2013 failed to meet their goals. 17
