Are You Venture Worthy? 200,000 Companies Surveyed
We wanted to provide an update from the
ongoing market analysis of VentureWorthy.com.
VentureWorthy researches companies while
they are in the process of raising capital,
versus other research platforms today which
report only on companies after they have
completed raising capital.
Below are some key findings and notes on the
change in market dynamics over the last 3
- 66% of companies raising capital are at
the Startup stage (a 7% change), 22% are at
the Launched stage (a –6% change), and 10%
are Profitable (a -3% change).
- While looking at the top 5 industries for
companies that are seeking capital. There
was a wide shift in industries, which we
believe demonstrates more variety in the
market, versus the “herd” mentality of two
years ago, where every other company was
competing for the same customers. We also
continue to note the strength of non-
technology companies who are seeking
capital, versus two years ago where everyone
was a dot com. 1) Non-Technology
2) Professional Services, 3) Consumer
E-commerce, 4) Application Service Provider,
and 5) Software
- The average amount of capital a Startup
and Launched company is seeking today is
$100,000 for a Profitable company it is
between $1-3 Million. This is a dramatic
drop from the last time period where the
average company was seeking $1-3 Million,
versus the current $100,000. We believe
this shows another trend where companies are
back to “bootstrapping”, raising much less
capital while proving their business case.
- The average valuation of startup and
launched companies today is under $1 Million,
for Profitable companies the average
valuation is between $3-5 Million. The
valuation for startups have remained
consistent and the valuation for profitable
companies have dropped off to what we
believe is a more reasonable level in this
