confused between the terms and stuff in funding?
yes, starting up with an idea is easy, but starting up with funding is a bit confusing.
here's a simple stash for you to understand things around funding.
(Do save this fur further reference)
If you are at the ideation stage, you will start with borrowings/loans from your family, friends, and from your savings.
this is called Bootstrapping or Pre-Seed funding. At this stage startups mostly concentrate on building MVP( Minimum Viable Product).
And next comes Seed funding, it's the stage when Angel investors invest in startups by seeing their MVP, vision, and confidence of startup growth.
While this is the starting stage for many startups, it is also a ‘wrapping up’ stage
If the startup fails to utilize the first round and get in some results, it gets difficult for them to move to the second round of funding that is, Series A funding.
After seed funding now you'll get series funding. There'll be A, B, C series mostly and sometimes D&E too.
Once the start-up made some traction and got visibility with its product in the market, it'll eligible for Series A funding. In this round, startups are expected to have ideas about future development and revenue generation.
By series A, startups mostly concentrate to increase revenue and expansion. It can be funded by either Angel Investors or Venture capitalists.
By entering Series B, startups might already figure out their product-market fit and doing great at their business. Now the series B funding for them is all for Expansion, development and concentrates more on team building.
Series C funding is done mostly by successful and good revenue-generating startups. This funding is used for introducing new products, acquiring other startups, and mostly to stand out from their competitors.
After series C, there'll be very few startups going through series D&E, mostly because of failures in development/operating or got new ways to make it bug before going to IPO (Initial Public Offering).
After these series of funding, the biggest thing for any startup/business is raising IPO, by startups switch from private limited to a public limited company and raise the huge amount by distributing shares to the public.
An angel investor is an individual who provides capital for a business/start-up, usually in exchange for convertible debt or ownership equity. Angel investors usually give support to start-ups at the initial moments.
Max investmentcapacity :$25,000 to $100,000.
It is a private equity investor that provides capital to companies with high growth potential in exchange for an equity stake. This could be funding startups/businesses.
Max investment capacity:$1 million and $20 million or more or less.
