In case you weren't sure actually how much money venture capitalists are pouring into tech in 2015, let me tell you: it's a lot. According to findings from KPMG and partner CB Insights, venture funding in North America is projected to hit $70 billion dollars in 2015.

The estimate is based on current trends in investments for the first half of the year. So far, $37.5 billion has been invested across 2353 deals in the first half of 2015. If investments manage to hit that $70 billion mark by December, then it will be its highest in the last five years.

According to the report, a lot of the money is motivated by late stage funding rounds and the emergence of new unicorns. In the second quarter of 2014, 24 companies reached the billion-dollar unicorn valuation, up from nine last year. Adding to the 11 new unicorns in the first quarter, 35 companies have reached the unicorn mark in the first half of 2015.
