About Funding Fridays
A observe on information. I am utilizing information from Crunchbase. This information has quite a few limitations comparable to: (1) The information is self reported. (2) When the information is reported, not each area is required. So, there are corporations that report the quantity raised, however not the valuation or vice versa. All I’m doing is taking that information as it’s, and calculating averages. I’d love excellent information, however sadly, I am doing the very best with what we have got. Whereas the information is imperfect, I hope it is extremely beneficial for founders to know the overall state of the market at present and the way it’s altering over time. I hope it helps you.
