If you're a founder of a startup you should read this survey from First Round. The survey included responses from over 500 founders who commented on everything from engineer salaries to office meal programs and everything in between.
Most think it won’t get easier to raise funding. We asked the 500+ founders who took our survey whether they think it's going to get easier or harder to raise capital in the next 12 months. The results were overwhelming. Of those founders with a point of view: 95% of Series Seed, 97% of Series A, and a whopping 99% of late-stage founders say it's going to remain the same or get harder. Given that 80% of these founders also said they raised exactly what they wanted or more in their last round of funding, it sounds like folks are expecting a rapid shift in the funding environment.
