Startup

Terminology 101

Angel Investor

A high net-worth individual with rich experience in a particular domain, who invests in a startup, seed-stage or early-stage company in return for an ownership stake. Angel investors usually invest their own money.

Elevator Pitch

A short speech describing an idea for a business or project crisply and in as few words as possible. The term elevator pitch comes from the idea that the pitch is so brief that you could give it to someone you met in an elevator, during the time it takes to complete the ride.

Bootstrapping

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.

Pre & Post Money Valuation

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).

Seed Funding

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.

Early-Stage Funding

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.
