Maybe it was the turkey. Maybe it was the tofurkey. For whatever reason, Boston startup funding in November only reached a little over $203 million, a 40 percent decrease from the previous month. There were also fewer startups that raised money this month.
The largest November rounds came from Markforged’s $30 million, Locus Robotics’ $25 million, and ReversingLabs and Recorded Future, both of which also raised $25 million each.
Here are the 24 startups that raised more than $229 million in November:
• 1366 Technologies, a GE-backed solar technology company, raised a $9 million round, according to BBJ. The round was backed by an undisclosed strategic backer and its previous investors.
