Startup Success Rates

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

The early-stage failure rate of startups is quite high.

Out of 100 startups, only 40% go to the next level at Series A.

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.

Only 14% of Series B 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.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
