Let's be honest, more often than not when a startup makes headlines, it is because they raised a VC round.
Sure, it does deserve some celebration. But VC funding is a means to an end, not the end itself, isn't it? Moreover, it is not a make or break for your startup. Rather it is just one of the many growth levers.
In the report, we look at some stats:
- Only 1% of startups actually get funded
- On average, startups spend about 6 months to get funding
Also, we breakdown the VC model and realise that its economics requires startups to make a 100x return. So, the question ask yourself - what is your motivation behind starting up?
