Early Stage Financing

The term “Early Stage Financing” merges “early” and “stage”. It is about a kind of equity-financed startup funding for young startups. Startup fundings comprise generally smallish sums. The risk of loss is comparatively high as it cannot be foreseen whether the company establishes itself successfully. These fundings are awarded by business angels or venture capitalists who receive a participation as a quid pro quo.
