Brooklyn startups raised more than $67 million since the beginning of September, according to a scouring of public records we just completed.

While this number was subject to some judgment over what was a tech company (most manufacturing and financial companies were left out, as they tend to be more “small business” than “startup”) it gives us a good idea of the robustness of the startup market over the last four months or so.

Nearly all the names here are new ones to us here at Technical.ly Brooklyn, and many of them do not even have a public-facing website set up yet.

Seed and pre-seed rounds were most numerous, with 13 of the 21 raises (62 percent) coming in at under $2 million.

Nanotronics Imaging: $24.4 million
