Silicon Valley Institute for Regional Studies

Data is from Crunchbase and includes the entire city-defined Silicon Valley region, San Francisco, and California. The analysis includes disclosed financing data for Angel Deals (may include small VCs or family funds or individuals, or may just be noted as an Angel round by the company itself), and seed stage investments that included at least one Angel investor. Angel Deals are typically pre-seed and are not necessarily tied to equity. 2016 and 2017 data were extracted in January, 2018. Investment amounts have been inflation-adjusted and are reported in 2017 dollars using the Bay Area consumer price index for all urban consumers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for Silicon Valley and San Francisco data, 2017 estimate based on January-August, and the California consumer price index for all urban consumers from the California Department of Finance May Revision Forecast (April 2017) for California data.

Only includes disclosed financing data for all deals that were designated specifically as Angel funding rounds and seed stage investments that included at least one Angel investor.
