This week, I take a look at the 20 companies that have raised the largest startup funding rounds in Los Angeles this year using some data from our friends at Crunchbase (as of 7/23). In addition to dollar amount, I have included industry, round, investors in the round, and total capital raised to further the analysis. As I know that all of these companies are hiring, I have also included the number of open positions (240) that are available at each as of the time of this writing, according to their respective websites. I am hopeful that this will be useful for the job seekers out there and I am sure that the service providers will use this information for their own benefit. Lastly, in order to maintain a focus on conventional tech startups, pharmaceutical and biotech companies were removed from the data.
