Supporting Your Capital Raise Jouney
The # 1 reason why startups fail is because they cannot raise capital fast enough, according to a CB Insights study published in July 2021. This insight prompted us to analyze the capital raising journeys of our LaunchPad alumni compared to other startups nationwide who raised at least $1M Series A in 2021. Here’s what we discovered:
Our LaunchPad alumni raised capital 25% than their peers, which means they can achieve their milestones, commercialization and revenue faster.
Our LaunchPad alumni retain 3% more equity than their peers and maintain this advantage through future rounds.
This validates that our LaunchPad alumni are uniquely equipped through the Octane Ecosystem and have a distinct advantage when raising capital.
Past performance is not an indicator of future results.
