Pre-Seed Funding Rose in Q2 2023: Carta Study

As many in the tech space are all-too-painfully aware, funding is generally down from year-ago highs.  Here’s a glimmer of good news: Carta reports that pre-seed funding actually rose in the second quarter of 2023 to $972 million, up 17% from the previous quarter.  Alas, the number of deals continued to drop, falling to 1,608 vs 1,820 the quarter before.
