Time to Expand

Series funding rounds are a crucial stage in the growth and financing journey of startups. These rounds typically follow the initial seed funding and are aimed at fueling further expansion, scaling operations, and capturing a larger market share. Series funding rounds are named Series A, Series B, Series C, and so on, with each subsequent round denoting a new phase of investment.

During a Startup Series funding round, startups seek funding from institutional investors, venture capital firms, and sometimes private equity investors. The specific stage at which a startup embarks on a Series funding round depends on its growth trajectory, market traction, revenue generation, and overall funding needs.

Series A

At this stage, start-ups have formulated a specific plan for their product or service. It is mostly used for marketing and improving your brand credibility, tapping new markets and helping the business grow.

Series B

Before this stage product is marketed right, and the customers are actually buying the product or service, as decided earlier. Such funding helps a business in paying salaries, hiring more staff, improving the infrastructure and establishing it as a global player.

Series C and beyond

A Startup can receive as many rounds of investment as possible, there is no certain restriction on it. However, during Series C investment, the owners, as well as the investors, are pretty cautious about funding further rounds. The more the investment rounds, the more release of the business’ equity.

Series A and B round are funding rounds for earlier stage companies and range on average between $1M–$30M and Series C rounds and onwards are for later stage and more established companies. These rounds are usually $10M+ and are often much larger. However, some companies can go on to Series D and even Series E rounds of funding as well.

When is your startup ready for pre-seed funding?

There is no single rule for when a business is ready to raise a Series round, however, there are a few indicators that may indicate this is the right decision.

  • You have a valid business model that can quickly be scaled and adapted according to the changing needs of your company
  • You have promising unit economics
  • You’re generating revenue on a smaller scale than what you can manage with the funds you’re asking for
  • You know where your product fits within the current market
  • You’ve started drumming up customers and have a good idea where you need to go in order to reach more of them
  • All of your legal documentation and compliance forms are in order and up-to-date
