A chilling Tech November

The year is winding down and so is fundraising. The tech scene in November in a nutshell took us by surprise with the infamous Twitter lay-offs which set an onslaught of massive tech layoffs. Major tech companies like Meta, Amazon, Salesforce, Cisco followed suit announcing a downsizing as well. After a pandemic-era boom for tech in 2021 which saw a massive hiring across tech companies, the current development was the least expected. As recorded by TrueUp’s tech layoff tracker, there were 1138 rounds of layoffs at tech companies through mid-November affecting 185,602 people.

A chilling tech November indeed! Would these new developments affect fundraising in the coming months? Most likely.

Fundraising events have decreased this Month. 325 start-ups received funding in November as compared to the 362 that received funding in October.

This report is made according to data collected and analysed from the Skopai platform.
