Not yet VC ready

It appears you’ve already accomplished a significant amount of work, but you’re still in the early stages of the investment journey. You may need to refine your strategy, investment materials, investor lists, or perhaps all of these areas. Don’t be discouraged – you’ve already completed the most challenging part of the process, and a low score doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t secure funding.

Consider the following next steps:

  • Invest your time into speaking to potential customers and investors, get some feedback and validation
  • Consider raising initial capital from friends & family to reach the first milestones (many successful businesses have done this)
  • Keep in mind this assessment was built with VCs in mind – but there are multiple other ways to get the business funded, and not all businesses are meant to be VC-funded
  • Read more insights on our blog that can help to prep for the VC raise
  • Join the waitlist for our Fundraising Co-Pilot, which we will be launching later in 2024

If you have questions about the score (or think we are totally wrong!) – share your results on social media, tag Waveup, and we will provide more background on how you got the score above.
