The savviest startup investors know that the difference between being mildly successful and being wildly successful comes down to understanding risk. Because when you’re investing in companies with a limited operating history, some risks are worth taking. Others are not.

Not all risks are created equal either. Funding risk is one of the most commonly discussed risks in startup investing. But it’s also one of the most misunderstood. That’s why Andy Gordon and Vin Narayanan devoted this episode of First Stage Investor‘s Startup Insider to discussing funding risk.


In this episode, Andy and Vin explain what funding risk is, just how concerned investors should be about it and how they should factor funding risk into their investment decisions.

Thanks for watching!
