Great post! And very helpful to hardware founders out there who often have a hard time finding which VC to talk to.
For accelerators I understand that sheer deal volume would make them outweigh “normal VCs”, also generally the main value prop of accelerators is not $ but moving the needle on product or business.
It would be nice to get SOSV listed as it does legit follow-on rounds at seed and series A — it’s been acknowledged as the world’s third most active seed fund recently by Crunchbase and Pitchdeck and since most deals are either Hardware (HAX) or Life Sciences (Indie.Bio) it’s likely well ranked in activity in those sectors. We can share data there.
