Only 22% of startups reach Series B.
Only 15% of startups reach Series C.
Only 8% of startups reach Series D.
As for the success rate, only 9% of pre-seed companies reach an acquisition.
Only 12% of Series A companies reach an acquisition.

The most any startup can reach an acquisition is 16%.
The failure rate is near exponential.
It’s a hit business. You have a hit or you most likely will lose your investment.
