In a turnaround from last year’s depressed market, which we chronicled here and here, Crunchbase reports things are looking up:

“…nearly 2,200 U.S. and Canadian companies secured angel or seed rounds in Q3 of 2018. That’s down a couple percent from the prior quarter and up about 15 percent from year-ago levels.

“Total investment in seed-stage companies, meanwhile, is projected at around $1.4 billion, also down a bit from the prior quarter and up from year-ago levels.”
