Are investors being more sensitive to valuations?

Is the valuation bubble bursting and being reset?

If you haven't felt it yet, you will. Investors are pushing back on high startup valuations. When it comes to early-stage startup, raising capital valuations have been steadily increasing the past few years. Investors, angels and micro VCs had to go with the flow.

Well, it is no longer the case. Early-stage investment is highly risky. Data shows that most companies, with perfect execution, exit under $100M and investors are looking for a minimum of 10X returns. Hence, valuations must be reset, at the very least, to be under $10M for investors to be willing to take such risk.

Pismo Ventures’ Startup Symposium provides startups with the opportunity to test investors risk tolerance. Their new proprietary assessment, in partnership with Startup EcoSystem™, can help you determine if you are ready or not and guide you through the process.

The upcoming symposium is for B2X (not life science) startup companies.
