The cloud is raining money these days.

Approximately one in five companies that went public in the U.S. in 2013 were related to SaaS, or software as a service, according to this infographic created by venture capital firm Inventus Capital Partners. For the purposes of this infographic, SaaS companies rely on cloud-based technologies, or those whose infrastructure is Internet-based, not dependent on any hardware.

Some of the biggest SaaS IPOs last year include online coupon company RetailMeNot, biotech cloud software company, Veeva, and e-commerce company Zulily, selling clothes and home goods targeted at moms and children.
