There are many paths for the growth of newly created companies . Venture Capital may be one of them, but it is only one option among several to consider.
- Multiple studies have found that only a small part of start-up financing is obtained from Venture Capital.
- In particular, a study by Hellman, Manju and Marco (2011) found that less than 1% of start-up financing comes from VCs.
- The Kauffman firm survey – the most comprehensive study of entrepreneurship to date – found that only 4.4% of the funding of the 5,000 companies surveyed came from VC.
- Most capital for start-ups comes from savings, friends, family and loans (Robb and Robinson, 2012). There is no traditional debt market for start-ups.
