data-scientistBig data companies are attracting big investments from venture capitalists. But which startups are garnering the most funding? Venture capitalists made more big data investments than ever before in 2012, and a few more deals have already closed in 2013. Entrepreneurs from several venture-backed data startups like ramotion-startup webflow will be getting huge funding from investors.

Despite the bump in number of deals, the total amount of money VCs threw at big data startups in 2012 $1.39 billion was down by nearly 7% year over year. The median deal size decreased slightly, from $6 million to $5.7 million. The percentage of deals for big data infrastructure in relation to all big data funding continued to fall, while big data analytics has risen to a high of 48 percent of all deals
