Big global deals
Two of the four biggest deals this week were not in the U.S., as China-based companies locked in some big rounds.
- Car-sharing service T3 Mobile Travel Services closed a $1.2 billion-plus Series A.
- Electric vehicle startup Hozon raised a $624 million Series D.
We tracked the largest rounds in the Crunchbase database that were raised by U.S.-based companies for the seven-day period of Oct. 23-29. Although most announced rounds are represented in the database, there could be a small time lag as some rounds are reported late in the week.
