$1.6 Billion Invested in Food-Related Tech and Digital Media in 2013

From 2012-2013, over $2.8 billion was invested in the food/tech/media realm. In 2013, over $1.6 billion was invested into U.S-based private companies through 148 investments– up from $1.2 billion and 136, respectively, in 2012.

The industry continues to grow rapidly. Restaurant-related technology won the most attention from both investors and acquirers with 54 percent of the investments (representing $453.1 million across 76 deals), and 51 percent of M&A activity.
