2021 year-end digital health funding: Seismic shifts beneath the surface

If you’ve been following our updates, you know 2021 was a (the!) year for digital health venture funding: In July, we reported that the year had already topped all of digital health’s previous annual funding records with six months left to go. While it may feel like old news to share just how momentous 2021 was, our updated funding graphs—with extended axes just to capture 2021’s growth—speak for themselves.

However, beneath the chart-topping numbers are signals of something deeper. 2021’s funding frenzy was, at points, both the cause and effect of bigger shifts within healthcare. Specifically, the sector experienced major changes to its infrastructure, business models, and talent pool that will make downstream effects in 2022 inevitable.

In this piece, we’ll review 2021’s funding environment with a focus on the underlying changes beneath the surface’s venture stats. We’ll place our bets on how the digital health landscape will move throughout 2022—and where there might be tremors ahead.

Glitter or gold? What the SPAC trend means for digital health

2021 opened with a whirlwind of SPAC-triggered public exit activity in digital health. In this post, we share insights and analysis on how digital health’s SPAC boom will impact four different stakeholder groups, as well as implications for the entire ecosystem. Q1 2021 is barely wrapped, and public exit announcements in digital health have already far exceeded last year’s total. The vast majority (>80%) of this activity is SPAC-related and (agnostic to digital health’s corner of the private and public markets) the SEC is taking note. SPAC talk has infiltrated digital health airwaves, news feeds, and collective conversation. Opinions abound, but we’re not satisfied with mere speculation—we wanted to understand what the data had to say. Below, we share our analysis and observations on SPACs in digital health, and explore what they mean for sponsors, entrepreneurs, investors, enterprise healthcare companies, and the digital health ecosystem at large.
