Top Alcohol Startups

TechCrunch recently reported on the 2014 boom in Venture Investments for alcohol startups. More and more tech companies are entering the alcohol industry. From advanced breathalyzers, to apps connecting breweries directly to consumers. And it seems that Venture Capital firms are helping to consolidate this trend. According to TechCrunch, in 2014 alcohol startups raised $100 million in 43 funding rounds. Three times the amount raised in 2013. And 800% more the value of 2010.

This Silk visualizes the data behind the top alcohol startups, according to the TechCruch article.
