As they say, spring showers (of money) bring May flowers. Seed funding is a welcome sight for startups as big deals slow down to a trickle. The last few years of the ‘unicorn era’ have made VCs recognize they eat too much. Many VCs are now shifting their focus to seed funding; growing something new, operating lean, and hoping to cash in on the green.
