How much equity do startups sell in Series A?

The amount of equity a company needs to relinquish while raising a Series A round varies considerably by industry. 

Startups require different amounts of capital to get started and some sectors hold more value for investors than others, both of which can influence the percent of equity a company needs to sell to get started. 

For example, according to data from Carta, an equity management firm, the median biotech startup sells just over 31% of company equity during Series A—nearly twice as much as the median fintech company.
