Show Me the Money: Where Is Venture Capital Placing Bets in Bio-based?

From 2010 to 2015, the bio-based materials and chemicals (BBMC) industry attracted nearly $9.2 billion in funding from corporates, debts, individuals, private equity, public investment, and venture capital (VC). Notably, VCs have been the major financing driver for start-ups and invested $5.3 billion (57%) of the total investment from 2010 to 2015. In this report, we highlight the trends in types of technologies and products VC’s have funded in the past six years. We then explore how the funding landscape shifts in 2016 and project the next big bets by VCs in 2017.
