As reported by Pitchbook, the median pre-money valuation financings in 3Q 2013 fell across the board. The exceptions were Series Seed and Series C, both of which increased to new record highs. Valuatons have been trending higher for the last several years, but it had historically been most pronounced in later stage rounds (Series D or later). However, as we discussed several weeks ago, seed valuations are now skyrocketing, as well as Series C.

As you can see above, the deal volume and capital invested has been relatively stable since mid-2012 after a volatile period from 2011 through first half of 2012.
