On Globalization & Venture Capital

A Sobering (and humbling) Reminder…

Courtesy Fred Wilson, this chart and the data below (via Mark Suster)…

…using the math I laid out yesterday (roughly 1,000 startups funded each year by VCs), this means that on average between 1% and 3% of venture funded startups get to an IPO.

To recap, 1-3% get to an IPO and 5-10% get to an M&A exit over $100mm. So 85-95% of all venture backed startups will either fail or exit below $100mm.
