A Look Into VC Funding in 2019 examines fundraising trends

Embroker, a provider of insurance to venture-backed startups, has published “A Look Into VC Funding in 2019.” Its new report analyzes the venture capital (VC) middle market and successful startups under $1 billion.

Further, the report examines the relationship between VC funding and startup revenue.

Highlights from the Embroker Report

Here are several key takeaways from the report. Embroker found:

  • 28% of U.S. based startups started acquiring capital in the pre-revenue stage
  • 40% of seed startups needed to raise $5–10 million to move onto Series A rounds
  • 42% of startups that moved onto Series B raised funds of $20 million or more
  • Media startups have the greatest funding success averaging over $81.9 million raised in Series B alone
  • The real estate sector dominated seed funding raising $8.9 million on average

This inaugural report also analyzed a sample of the thousands of startups that Embroker works with and their funding data. Furthermore, this data included geographical differences in venture capital, the relationship between funding and revenue averages, discrepancies in funding brackets by round, and the correlation between the size of startups and funding success.

“Our data sheds light on the funding of companies that is not typically represented in the VC industry reports published today,” said Embroker CEO Matt Miller. “Our report shows that, without a doubt, U.S. venture capital activity outside of large-scale funding is not only fueling the ideas and innovations of tomorrow but is a driving force in helping to build a solid foundation for today’s U.S. economy.”
