The report also mentions that every sub sector has suffered a decrease in funding. Excluding data and analytics enterprises. 

The number of deals under $50 million have decreased exponentially. This quarter the funding roughly amounts to $9.8 billion. Raises smaller than $50 million are around 44% in comparison to  29% in Q1 2022.
