What Tech, Cleantech and Healthtech Startups Received Funding in May 2021?

A few months ago, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) unveiled a new web page that shows the funding that has been received by New Jersey startups at all stages of growth, as well as the mergers and acquisitions that have been happening all over the state.

There is more investment listed on this website than most of us in the New Jersey tech community are aware of, and it’s good to see how many startups in the Garden State are receiving backing from angels and venture funds. Most of these investments come from out-of-state angels, venture funds, family offices, etc.

NJTechWeekly.com has decided to publish the angel and VC investment information in tech, healthtech, cleantech and other tech-related companies from the previous month, once a month. This article includes the startup funding for May 2021.

This is a useful place for entrepreneurs to see which investors are funding companies like theirs, and for them to learn the scope of that funding. For those interested in economic development, remember that these are the companies that will likely be hiring in New Jersey.

All the information, including the listings on biotech and pharma companies, is available on the Angel and VC Investments website, here. As the NJEDA says, the list isn’t meant to be exhaustive.

The listings of the deals are compiled from outside sources, including Pitchbook and Crunchbase, as well as other sources that are available to the public. The NJEDA has marked with an asterisk the companies that it has helped. If we have covered the company’s newest funding round, we’ve added a link.
