What Investors Look For: 3 Simple Rules For Raising Money

Both those words, “great” and “idea” are horribly subjective. To be honest, they’re closer to the indiscernible world of art, where a beautifully realistic painting could be worth $25 and a stick figure could be worth $2.5M.Entrepreneurship is far more about giving people something they need, or something they didn’t know they wanted. It’s about solving a very clear problem. Not a problem you think exists, or a problem you...

How Seed Funding Has Exploded In The Past 10 Years

How Seed Funding Has Exploded In The Past 10 Years

Seed-stage funding to startups has exploded in the past decade and become an asset class of its own. If that wasn’t obvious already, consider that in just the past few months, three of Silicon Valley’s largest and best-known venture firms—Andreessen Horowitz, Greylock and Khosla Ventures—all announced large new dedicated seed funds. To visualize this dramatic change in the venture ecosystem and understand how much seed investment grew in the past 10 years, we decided to look at the number of U.S. startups that were funded over various five-year time frames and at different stages. ...

Lab-Grown Meat Is Coming And Has Billions In VC Backing. But Will Consumers Bite?

Lab-Grown Meat Is Coming And Has Billions In VC Backing. But Will Consumers Bite?

Many people don’t forget the day they found out their chicken nuggets came from a bird, not unlike one they may have seen in cartoons or in the local petting zoo.

‘Cash Is King’ As VC Spigot Slows

A year ago, startup founders often found themselves fought over by venture investors eager to grab a piece of any promising young company with fast growth potential. Investors competed in an increasingly heated environment in which they were often under pressure to close outsized deals in a matter of days. All told, venture capitalists spent a record $643 billion in 2021, almost double what they had the year before. But times are changing. Global venture investment in the first quarter of 2022 dipped 13 percent quarter-over-quarter, marking the first time in a year of funding records when...
