Seed deal sizes are growing in tech, and it looks like it’s not just in the US. In Canada, seed deals are also growing in size, reaching a median deal size of $2M in Q4 2014. Seed deal size reached a 5 quarter low in Q1 2014 of $0.6M, but doubled in size the following quarter. Some large seed deals include investments in Blockstream, InvestX Capital, and FreshGrade.
Series A deals have not followed the same trend, with deal size decreasing in the past two quarters to $3.5M in Q4 2014. Q2 2014 saw a spike in median deal size due to fewer but larger rounds including Tasktop Technologies and Allocadia Software. Q1 2014 hit a low for median deal size, being the only quarter to drop below the $3.0M line.
