Series A and B Financing

Series A financing is defined as the first round for a new business venture after seed capital. Generally, this is the first time that company ownership is offered to external investors. Series A financing may be provided in the form of preferred stock and may offer anti-dilution provisions in the event that further financing through preferred or common stock occurs in the future.

The Series B round will generally take place when the company has accomplished certain milestones in developing its business.
