ISSUE – Apr. 05 | Optimism and seed-stage FOMO persist despite 2018’s lackluster start

Here are a few of this quarter’s highlights:

  • NYC saw a total of 25 seed deals completed in Q1 – just shy of last quarter’s 26 – bringing in $39.2 million in total funding, down 26% from Q4. 
  • Median deal size fell for the first time in 6 quarters, and hit its lowest level since Q1 2016.
  • SaaS deals comprised the bulk of Q1 deal flow, with emphasis on platforms that increase transparency for corporate customers. [ primary.vc ]
