Global digital health funding slumped in the first quarter, falling 36% sequentially to its lowest level since 2020, according to a report by CB Insights. The decline was driven by a halving of the funding committed in $100 million-plus mega-rounds.
Public markets felt the squeeze, too, with the number of IPOs falling 96%. Only one digital health company tracked by CB Insights completed an IPO in the first quarter, and no businesses went public via mergers with special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs).
IPO市場也感受到壓⼒，上市公司的數量下滑96%。Q1只有⼀家CB Insights追蹤的數位健康科技公司 成功上市，沒有公司是透過與特殊⽬的收購（SPAC）的⽅式上市
The data is directionally in line with the findings of an earlier report from Rock Health, which described how the drying up of deals in February and March may be an early sign of a correction in digital health venture capital funding.
