Over the last two years, YC companies have raised 190 Series A’s and over $2B of capital. We collected information about every one of those rounds while working with founders before, during, and after close. We’ve published some of what we learned in our Series A Guide. We’re excited to release it today.Feb 26, 2020

We looked at 120 US Series A rounds from our portfolio over the past 18 months to see whether or not preemptive offers were generally more or less dilutive than process driven rounds. On average, founders taking preemptive offers are taking ~1.4% more dilution for less money.Sep 19, 2019
