Top Investor Tuesday — Most Active VCs in Seed Stage Rounds
November 18, 2015
Since the beginning of 2010, 2,387 VC investors have participated in at least one seed round globally, according to the PitchBook Platform. During the timeframe, VCs have completed an increasing number of seed financings each year, with annual deal count jumping from 484 in 2010 to 1,943 last year. This upward trend looks like it will end in 2015, however, as investors have completed only 1,215 deals so far. Even with the number of seed rounds trending lower than previous years, capital invested at the stage has stayed strong; VCs have already pumped $1.97 billion into seed investments this year, surpassing 2014’s total of $1.95 billion. Pre-money valuations for these rounds have seen a steady uptick YoY, growing from $3.2 million in 2010 to $5.9 million in 2015.
