The phase where founders use personal assets and operating revenues to found and build a company. Valuation is both art and science, the science is the easy part, the art is more subjective.
The pre-money valuation is the value put on the company before raising capital. The post-money valuation is the value of the company after it has raised capital. For eg. If Company X raised $1 million at a pre-money valuation of $3 million. It’s Post-money valuation would be $ 4 million (3+1).
This is the initial funding used to start a business, usually one that has not yet started to produce revenues. Seed funding often comes from the assets of the founders and their friends and families but may also come from other sources, such as seed accelerator programs, angel investors, micro VC’s and private equity funds.
This is the startup’s first round of substantial funding. Early-stage funding is usually provided by venture capital firms and generally consists of two parts Series A financing and Series B financing.
