Interesting analysis of where investor's dollars are being spent. 

My experience is that most money is going where certain of these sectors converge

  • Analytics
  • Big Data
  • Market Places
  • SaaS
  • In sectors like banking, finance and insurance 

It is often innovative companies like360Globalnet that build a "marketplaces" platform for a specific industry ( insurance).   Adding data prep and analytics allows insurance companies to access all the data, not just structured, to give staff the information to manage processes better (insurance claims through to repair and replacement). Better & faster service, reduced costs and fraud, more efficient and effective staff.

You can see the same wave of innovation disrupting sectors like asset management, construction & engineering, healthcare
