A Times of India article quotes Venture Intelligence data on Early stage investments in 2016:
According to data analytics firm Venture Intelligence, there were 107 funding deals this year, almost at par with last year's figure of 117 deals, for investments within $1 million. The top deals in this category were raised by Bengaluru-based self-publishing platform Pratilipi which raised $925,000 in seed funding from Nexus Venture Partners,and others, this June. The trend changed as the deal size increased. For instance, funding rounds between $1 million and $10 million saw a drop from 205 deals last year to 170 deals this year. The big ticket funding rounds of more than $10 million saw only 56 funding rounds this year, compared to last year's 93.
