For quite some time, investors have been worried about missing out on the next big thing.

Ever since Facebook made its debut 13 years ago, investors have been sinking their teeth into various startups just hopping to have a fraction of the success.

This investor trend may be over. According to recent data, investors are becoming pickier and the startup arena is starting to see signs of struggles to survive.

Here are the numbers:

30 percent | Percentage decline in 2017 U.S. tech startup investments

$75 billion | Amount of investments into tech startups in 2014 and 2015

294 | Number of companies that received a majority of 2014 and 2015 funding

216 | Number of 2014 and 2015 companies that received major funding but haven't seen a dime since

$100 million | Amount of funding raised by some tech startups that have closed their doors
