The size of seed rounds are growing as seen in Mattermark’s recent investment report, which has brought on the rise of pre-seed funds looking to be the first money in to a startup before they raise a $2M+ seed round. Many people have written about this recently, including Manu Kumar from K9 Ventures in his post ‘The New Venture Landscape‘ and Ezra Galston from Foundation Capital in his post ‘A Pre-Seed Primer.‘
