Primary VCs Q1 2018 Seed Funding report: Optimism and seed-stage FOMO persist despite 2018’s lackluster start

If it was action you were hoping for from the seed market last quarter, you’d be better served watching the first two episodes of Silicon Valley, Season 2Pizza anyone? As for our own startup news, New York City saw a total of 25 seed deals completed in Q1 - just shy of last quarter’s 26 - and a total of $39.2 million in funding, which was down 26% from Q4. Compared to this time last year, Q1 saw 29% fewer deals and 32% less in total funding.
