With the solid post-IPO performances of Splunk and Tableau Software, Big Data continues to be on the mind of investors, and momentum is accelerating.

CBInsights, Aug 8, 2013

Big Data is getting even bigger in 2013. From Hadoop distributors to text mining platforms, private Big Data companies raised $1.28B across 127 deals in the first half of 2013. With an average of over $210M in funding and more than 20 financing deals per month, industry pundits will have some credibility when they inevitably describe 2013 as the “year of Big Data”. From 2008 to 2012, we’d seen $4.9 billion invested in Big Data companies but given 2013 activity-to-date, it’s obvious that interest and activity levels are ramping up.

The top 10 most active investors in Big Data over the last year are:

  • Lightspeed Venture Partners
  • New Enterprise Associates
  • Battery Ventures
  • Khosla Ventures
