The Revival Of Semiconductor Funding

The Revival Of Semiconductor Funding | Impressive growth! | Scoop.it

Over the past few years the semiconductor funding ecosystem experienced a downturn. According to the GSA survey, there were only five Series A semiconductor funding rounds and 10 exits in 2010 in North America, Europe and Israel. Most of the VCs who invested in semiconductors shifted their focus to software startups due to higher scalability, faster time-to-exit and low cost of failure.

However, I believe semiconductor funding hit bottom in 2013, and it is slowly coming back. I analyzed publicly available transaction data from CrunchBase and discovered promising insights about recent funding trends.

Criteo lève 30 millions d'euros

Criteo lève 30 millions d'euros | Impressive growth! | Scoop.it

Ce tour de table doit permettre d'alimenter l'impressionnante croissance du groupe.

 

Créée en 2005, la start-up a généré un chiffre d'affaires de 9 millions de dollars en 2009, puis de 60 millions en 2010, et de 200 millions l'année dernière. Et le rythme devrait se poursuivre cette année, avec en plus un plan de recrutement de 250 salariés, qui permettra d'étoffer une structure aujourd'hui composée de 700 salariés.

 

La raison de ce succès : une solution de « publicité display à la performance ». La société propose ainsi aux annonceurs des espaces publicitaires personnalisés en fonction des habitudes de navigation de l'internaute qu'elle recueille de façon anonyme et qu'elle exploite via un algorithme développé spécialement. Une solution qui lui permet de revendiquer un taux de clic dix fois supérieur au marché, aux alentours de 0,6 %. De quoi lui permettre d'envisager l'avenir avec sérénité, et notamment une introduction en Bourse. «  On se met en ordre de bataille», commente sobrement Jean-Baptiste Rudelle.

Google is maintaining an expansion of geolocation based indoor mapping and that it has been discussing some of its intentions for this technology quite openly at I/O. It isn’t just the smartphone manufacturers that are involved in this technology, as there have been four large AP providers (Motorola, Cisco, Ruckus, and Aruba) that have acquired business within this space.

Exclusive: Nest has raised another $80M, now shipping 40K+ thermostats a month

Exclusive: Nest has raised another $80M, now shipping 40K+ thermostats a month | Impressive growth! | Scoop.it

Smart thermostat startup Nest has closed on a round of $80 million, we’ve learned, and the funding was done at a post money valuation of $800 million. Google Ventures led the round, and Venrock participated as a new investor, according to our sources. Nest is currently listed on Venrock’s site.

The company has raised this round to continue its growth; it’s now shipping 40,000 to 50,000 of its learning thermostats per month. If the company’s growth continues at this current rate, Nest could reach a shipment rate of 1 million thermostats per year by the summer, say our sources. Note, that’s shipments, not sales, though the figures are clearly closely related.
