What a five months it's been. 2019 has been filled with a slew of massive funding rounds as tech companies prepare to head towards IPO exits - or perhaps, they'll just stay private forever - who knows? In any event, we've put together a list of private U.S. tech companies that have raised at least $500M in equity so far this year. The data was collected from Crunchbase.
Fun Facts:
  • There are four companies on this list in the autonomous vehicle space, raising a total of $3.18B in funding.
  • Doordash raised $600M three months and three days after their recent $400M round.
  • SoFi bought the rights to the new Rams/Chargers Stadium on the same day they announced their $500M funding round.
