Today we take a look at the state of venture capital and angel funding during the all of September, both in New York and nationally. Analyzing some publicly available data from our friends at CrunchBase, we break down the national aggregate statistics for all funding deals by stage of funding (Angel/Seed, Series A, Series B, and Series C+).
The number of deals remained relatively steady in September both nationally in New York with modest differences in amount. The average funding was up slightly from August levels in NYC with no real outliers to report.
The average Series A round grew close to 40% nationally, nearly approaching $10M per round across 55 rounds. In NYC, things were relatively consistent with historical averages and recent months.
Series B fundings took a slight dive as average valuations fell 27% in NYC. Nationally, they remained consistent with recent months.
Nationally, things heated up in the later rounds as there was nearly a 50% increase in aggregate funding while round sizes remained relatively consistent with recent months.
Another $370+M was pumped into the startup ecosystem in September, which represents a 57% increase from 2013 averages. At a national level, there was an increase in over a billion dollars in aggregate funding from August levels as the VCs returned from vacation and put money to work.
