"Series A, B Investments"

 

Definition:

Series A investment usually refers to the first investment a startup received from institutional investors after the stage of seed / angel investment.  The startup would have developed a product prototype at this stage, yet it may usually generate limited revenue or zero profit.

Series B investment refers to the second investment received from institutional investors. The startup would usually expand its business or market share, and develop a better business and profit model.

Nevertheless, the definitions of Series A and B investments vary across industries and areas, and may change according to market conditions.
