The State of the SaaS Fundraising Market

The State of the SaaS Fundraising Market | Fundraising | Scoop.it
In a recent survey, 40% of VCs pointed to SaaS as the startup sector most likely to be impacted by a market correction. There's no question that the early stage SaaS founders are benefiting from substantial multiple expansion and pre-money valuation increases. But I was curious about how widespread aggressive investments are in software companies. As the data below shows, the seed and Series A markets have been stable, but Series B rounds have seen a dramatic acceleration recently.
