General Overview

Company Demographics

Although proven in their idea they are high risk as idea is vetted but long term execution is still up in the air. Generally these startups have a lot of cash but have zero revenue. They are rushing like crazy to hit the metrics imposed on them. In general they have low value so equity should be reserved. Common issues arise when startups dilute to heavily and waterdown their stock options for future growth. This to them typically seems like something 'to worry about later' but for long term success this is paramount.
