Crunchbase:细数美国几大金融科技投资机构

Crunchbase News近期深入研究了美国2018年1季度金融科技行业的投资活动。

研究发现,2017年1季度,处于种子轮、早期和后期的美国金融科技初创企业获得的投资总数超过70亿美元。2018年投资金额较17年同季度上升37%,交易量达到峰顶并随之有轻微下滑。

有这些数字作参考,我们希望仔细研究一下哪些风投公司对金融科技初创企业投资最大。我们将其分为三类,即种子轮、早期和后期投资者,并根据2017年1月至今的投资总数进行了排名。

种子轮金融科技投资者

种子轮投资者的数量一直在增加,而初创企业的重心则是进军支付、保险、转账等领域。

列表中投资项目最多的公司是Y Combinator(简称YC),该公司对美国种子轮金融科技公司开展了28项投资。最近的一次是2018年3月对SafetyWing的120,000美元投资。SafetyWing位于加利福尼亚,是一家为全球范围内的自由工作者提供医疗服务的企业。

今年2月,Crunchbase News研究了YC比较重要的几个校友项目。从其官网得知,YC有1588个投资项目,因此该公司对于发展初创企业有丰富的经验。

早期金融科技投资者

Crunchbase News在2018年1季度报告显示,在2017年4季度与2018年1季度,对美国金融科技的投资中早期投资占了大多数。Plug and Play(简称PNP)是一家种子期及早期投资公司,在早期投资排名中该公司以9项投资位列榜首。

PNP对科技公司开展过690多项投资,并将其中24家创业公司作为投资重点。PNP还曾为Paypal赌过一把,结果Paypal如今已成为市值超过900亿美元的上市公司。2018年1月,Hippo Insurance获得了250亿美元的B轮融资,其中部分投资就来自PNP。Crunchbase News有一篇文章分析过名称奇怪的公司,也碰巧提到了Hippo Insurance。

后期金融科技投资者

在2018年1季度,对美国金融科技创业公司开展的后期投资数量越来越多,占总投资数的比重同比也有上升。对此起了推动作用的一家投资商是贝恩资本风险投资公司(Bain Capital Ventures,简称BCV),该公司是贝恩资本(Bain Capital)的子公司,位于波士顿。从其官网得知,该公司投资过200多家公司。

Defi Solutions是一个"软件及服务"(SaaS)贷款平台,也是BCV最新投资的一家位于成长期的金融科技公司。BCV是Defi Solutions2018年1月C轮融资的唯一投资人,投资额为550亿美元。

正如Crunchbase News的《2018年第一季度全球投资报告》所述,名单中有许多投资人对2018年1季度各个行业以及各个阶段的风投发展都产生了一定影响。比如,上一季度YC是美国对创业公司的投资活跃度最高的公司,在全球范围内的早期投资者中位列第12名。500 Startups、PNP、Khosla和Spark Capital同样跻身前11。随着上一季度对美国金融科技初创公司的后期投资占据总投资资本的大多数,这一阶段的投资也对全世界的风投发展起了推动作用。

Crunchbase News recently took a deep dive into the U.S. FinTech industry’s Q1 2018 venture activity. We found that deal volume in 2017 amounted to more than $7 billion in venture funding for seed, early, and late-stage startups. As 2018 came to a head, the number of deals in the space declined slightly, while venture capital dollars increased by 37 percent quarter over quarter.

With these numbers in mind, we wanted to take a closer look at which VCs have invested the most in FinTech startups. We’ve organized them by top seed, early, and late-stage investors by the number of total investments since January 2017.

Top Seed-Stage FinTech Investors

Seed-stage investors are boosting up and coming startups focused on breaking into payments, insurance, money transfers, and more.

At the top of the list is Y Combinator with 28 investments in seed-stage domestic FinTech companies. Its last seed-stage investment in a FinTech startup was a $120,000 round in March 2018 directed toward SafetyWing, a California-based healthcare company that provides coverage to global freelancers.

In February, Crunchbase News explored the most valuable YC alumni, and with more than 1,588 investments, according to its website, the fund has a deep well of experience in shaping up startups.

Top Early-Stage FinTech Investors

Early-stage U.S. FinTech investments, according to our Q1 2018 report, accounted for the majority of deals in Q4 2017 and Q1 2018. Plug and Play, a seed and early-stage investment firm, led the pack with nine early-stage investments.

The firm has made more than 690 investments in technology companies, with lead investments in 24 startups. Plug and Play also made an early bet on PayPal, now a public company with a market cap over $90 billion. California-based Hippo Insurance picked up an investment by Plug and Play in its $25 million Series B in January 2018. Hippo Insurance was coincidentally also mentioned in our Crunchbase News analysis of startups that have weird names.

Top Late-Stage FinTech Investors

The number of known late-stage deals for domestic FinTech startups increased and accounted for a greater proportion of deals in Q1 2018 compared to previous quarters. One investor that contributed to that deal number increase was Boston-based Bain Capital Ventures, the venture arm of Bain Capital. According to its website, the company has invested in more than 200 companies.

Defi Solutions, a SaaS platform for lenders, was the latest growth-stage FinTech company to score an investment by the firm. Bain Capital Ventures was the sole investor in the startup’s $55 million Series C in January 2018.

As reported in our Q1 2018 Global VC report, many of the investors on this list were influential in shaping the landscape of VC at all stages and across all categories during the first quarter of this year. Y Combinator, for example, was the most active lead investor in startups last quarter, and the 12th most active early-stage investor globally. 500 startups, Plug and Play, Khosla, and Spark Capital also made the top 11 for lead investments as well. And while late stage deals enjoyed the majority of the capital last quarter for U.S. FinTech startups, large, late-stage deals characterized the upward push of global VC as a whole.
