Austin Tech Just Had One of Its Best Years Ever

Investors increased their bets on Austin technology companies in 2014, funding 115 startups and buying up 31. In total, over $993 million was invested and over $437 million was spent on tech companies. Those funding totals increased 123 percent over 2013.

“SaaS plus data science plus enterprises: this last year has seen a number of interesting startups, like PivotFreight, beginning to target enterprises with solutions that pair the SaaS-ification of traditionally-spreadsheet-driven businesses with data science,” said Brian Dainton.
