Hyperlocal Private Financing for 2013 Street Fight Summit in NYC

Author: Eric F Risley

Eric Risley attended the 2013 Street Fight Summit in NYC, where he led a panel discussing the health of the hyperlocal financing market. When taking a look at total private financing into hyperlocal companies from 2010 – 2012, we see a declining trend, as $1.3b was invested in 2012 (291 unique companies) as compared to $2.6b invested in 2011 (308 unique companies). When taking a deeper dive, however, we realized that these numbers look drastically different when excluding the top three deals in each year. What does that mean? Over the past 3 years, 7 companies (1% unique) received 53% of the hyperlocal funding ($3.3b out of $6.2b). Take a look at our presentation for more details:
