Headcount vs. Funding by Technology Type


Average Headcount vs. Median Funding by Technology Type

Companies working on cutting-edge computer technology tend to have both high headcounts and high funding totals compared to other industries.

Higher funding correlates with higher headcounts, except in industries like Nanotechnology, Biotech, and Medical Devices.

Biotech companies typically have seven-figure funding totals, but fewer than 16 employees. In contrast, Social / Civ / Gov Tech companies typically have upwards of 45 employees, but less than $1 million dollars in total funding.
