Today, I take a look at the state of venture capital and angel funding during the month of April, 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 (Seed, Series A, Series B, and Series C+) including mention of notable rounds.
One Minute Takeaway:
April experienced a pronounced pullback from the momentum set forth in February and March with NYC startup funding falling to $565M for the month, down over 30% from March but consistent with April of 2017. Funding in NYC was particularly weak at the late stages as well as B level Nationally, funding was fell from March levels with aggregate funding down 28%.
