Abstract

Building science and technology-based organizations requires a reliable and steady stream of funding across the life cycle of the company. Along with building a good team, building a network of reliable and high value partners is essential. The financial community itself, however goes through periods of “ups and downs” and synchronizing financial strategy with reality can be challenging. Therefore, it is necessary to build and maintain a good understanding of the realities of the “state of the financial community” for access to capital and for exits such as M&A and IPOs. In this paper we provide a brief overview of the “state of the market” in 2018.
