    Awesome analysis! Some people would probably debate on the value they can get out of something like this, but for curiosity driven people like me – it’s fodder!

    Again, some people would dispute the regional bifurcation because well – people in NY are starting different kind of startups than people in the valley. And a handful of large deals can skew averages hugely!

    It’d be interesting to see something like this for pure seed funds though! :-)

    Cheers, and thanks for this amazing post!
