We analyzed the 894 VC-backed US tech companies that raised both a Seed round and a Series A round between 2010 and 2014. We sub-categorized the round sizes as follows:
- Small – Below the 25th percentile (<=$0.36M for Seed, <=$2M for Series A)
- Average – Between 25th and 75th percentile inclusive (between $0.36M and $1.5M for Seed, between $2M and $7M for Series A)
- Large – Above 75th percentile (>=$1.5M for Seed, >=$7M for Series A)
According to the data, nearly half of all large seed deals become large Series A deals, even larger than the number of deals that go from large seeds to average Series A. A small number of companies that raised large seeds ended up raising small Series A rounds, including Manzama and RiskPulse. For companies that raised small Seed rounds, 57% went on to raise an average Series A round, and only 13% raising rounds of $7M+ such as Misfit Wearables and Teespring.
