It topped the previous record set in the first six months of 2017 of $4.2bn, according to data from Tech Nation and Dealroom through their new Data Commons platform.

Startups in London took the lion’s share of the investment, grabbing $3.2bn from venture capital firms around the world since January. This also broke past the city’s previous record, set in 2017 at $2.6bn.
