LA tech companies are starting off 2022 on a high note. Already, five companies have raised nine-digit rounds for a combined $920 million. See which companies raised the most funds in January and which startups are actively growing their teams.

Rhianna’s famous lingerie brand received $125 million in fresh capital right as the company is planning to open brick-and-mortar stores across the nation.

ITrustCapital’s platform allows customers to buy and sell crypto through individual retirement accounts (IRAs).

Autograph is the NFT platform launched by famous football player Tom Brady and Whip Media CEO Richard Rosenblatt. Autograph has gained popularity since its launch, raising a Series B round co-led by Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins less than a year after its $35 million Series A round.

The new capital will allow the company to launch new products as well as “aggressively” hire new talent.

TigerConnect is a cloud-based communications platform for healthcare workers that allows not only communication between doctors and nurses but also features scheduling and alarm management tools.
