LA Tech Watch

A record breaking-year for LA startup funding. Here are some highlights of the largest rounds.

Armed with some data from our friends at CrunchBase, I broke down the largest LA startup funding rounds for the full year 2021. I have included some additional information as well such as industry and brief funding description, to further the analysis for the state of venture capital in LA. For the purposes of this analysis, only equity funding rounds were considered.

NowRx is disrupting the $480B retail pharmacy industry with unheard of personalized service and free same-day pharmacy delivery. The company uses its “QuickFill” proprietary pharmacy software and robotics to automate prescription dispensing and reduce common service failures that result in bad experiences for customers (insurance errors, out-of-stock, etc.). Oh, and they operate at a fraction of the cost of major retail chains – talk about efficiency! In 2020, the company saw revenue jump 90% YoY and this year they’re on pace to surpass more than $22M in revenue. With their newest telehealth product growing 73% MoM and a share price that has increased by 1,650% since 2016 – this is an investment you don’t want to miss out on. Get in on this rapidly growing startup and learn how you can invest today
