Pre-seed — $250K to $500K

This funding sets up the business and launches the customer discovery and product development process.

Seed — $500K to $1M

This funding starts the MVP product build and takes it to the market.

Seed+ — $500K to $750K

This funding is to complete the standard product and launch it into the market.

Series A — $1M to $5M

This funding sets up the company for rapid growth.

Series B — $3M to $15M

This funding sets up the company to scale the business.

Series C — $5M to $20M

This funding sets up the company to expand into new markets and geographies.

IPO — $25M to $100M+

This funding takes the company public and establishes it as an ongoing business.

Using the standard fundraise amounts simplifies the fundraise process and will be more familiar to investors.
