76 Percent Of Startups Acquired In 2012 Had No VC FundingFebruary 1, 2013 1:16 pm
We had spotted quite a few stats on VC funding recently, including the top VC funded domains. We had also spotted a not so great stat on the success percentage of VC funded startups. But what we spotted today was definitely a surprise – that 76 percent of startups acquired last year had NO VC funding (Source)
How do we digest this stat? Well, maybe the size of the startups getting acquired is not ‘VC’able. That is one explanation. The other explanation could be that the definition of VC is changing as well.
