Metrics to Raise a Series A



A common question in the startup world is: “what are the ideal metrics to raise a Series A?” EquityZen has a good post from last year on just this topic: The Metrics Required for Raising a Series A Round. Here are the key metrics to raise a Series A for each type of startup from the post:

·  Ecommerce – $12 million annual run rate
·  Consumer App – 50,000 daily active users with 25% month-over-month growth
·  SaaS – $1 million annual run rate and 100% year-over-year revenue growth
·  Marketplace – $12 million gross market volume with 20% month-over-month growth

The next time an entrepreneur says they’re going to raise a Series A, ask if they have the appropriate metrics based on their type of business.
