Understanding how businesses are created, funded, grown and ultimately rewarded with sustainability or an exit helps inform the conversations and actions for the coming years, and it is our hope you will read this report and combine it with your special knowledge of your industry, region, role and community as you charge forward into the New Year. Sincerely, Danielle Morrill, CEO & Cofounder of Mattermark Acknowledgements This analysis would not be possible without a team effort.

  4. © 2015 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ● MATTERMARK TRACTION REPORT ● MATTERMARK.COM ● (415) 366-6587 Time Period For this report we compared Q1 2014 and the 2014 calendar year to Q1 2015 in progress. For all “pace” metrics, we have taken the current deal volumes or amounts invested between January 1st and February 15th and assumed the same pace for the remainder of the quarter. Funding Rounds For venture rounds, we only included deals in which the amount of funding raised was disclosed. “Late” stage rounds include all rounds Series D and beyond (traditionally the 4th round of venture funding). “New York” includes the New York metro region (for example Jet is based in New Jersey according to our data set, but was still included in the geographical analysis). Data Sources Mattermark uses a broad range of sources to present the most complete picture possible of the startup ecosystem. In addition to extensive primary source research sourced specifically for this report, Mattermark uses publicly-available data from Crunchbase (www.crunchbase.com), AngelList (www.angel.co), NASDAQ (www.nasdaq.com), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (www.sec.gov), The White House Office of Management & Budget, and source relationships with thousands of investors, community leaders and startup founders.
