TechCrunch’s Connie Loizos published some intriguing stats on seed and successions a financings this week, courtesy of data collected by Wing adventure Capital. In short, seed is the brand-new successions an and successions an is the brand-new successions B. Sure, we’ve been saying that for a while, but Wing has some clean data to back up those claims.
Years ago, a successions a circular was roughly $5 million and a startup at that level wasn’t expected to be generating revenue just yet, something typically expected upon raising a successions B. Now, those rounds have swelled to $15 million, according to deal data from the top 21 VC firms. And VCs are expecting the startups to be making money off their customers.
“Again, for the old gangsters of the industry, that’s a gigantic shift from 2010, when just 15 percent of seed-level companies that raised successions a rounds were already making some money,” Connie writes.
