Report: MATTER startups raised $1.26B since 2015, saw 64% more revenue in 2019

An overview of our community’s major moments as MATTER enters its sixth year

A lot can happen in five years.

On February 13, 2015, MATTER’s doors opened for the first time with a handful of corporate partners and startup companies, a few programs and a thesis: that collaboration between entrepreneurs and industry leaders is the fastest, most effective way to accelerate innovation, advance care and improve lives.

We’re spending this week looking back on the stories and insights that prove that thesis — from helping stakeholders across healthcare see old problems in new ways, to leading discussions that explore the applications of emerging technologies. Today, we’re commemorating all we’ve accomplished together with a by-the-numbers look into the last five years at MATTER.

A big thank you to the MATTER staff members who worked to crunch five years of numbers and to the community members who sat down with us to share reflections and kind words — and a special thanks to MATTER’s marketing manager Liz Kennedy, who helped conceive and build this report, and who designed the infographic you’re about to enjoy.
