Major funding surge adds $815M to NYC tech in one weekend

August 6, 2018

While you were spending your weekend hitting the beach or (like me) sitting directly in front of your air conditioner, New York City tech was hard at work, closing deals and dreaming big. In the past few days alone, some of the city’s biggest names raised more than $815 million. Yep. In one weekend.

Built In NYC has the funding details you need to know to start your Monday. Dive in below:
