Funding round

A funding round is an investment, where a business or similar organization raises money to fund operations, expansion, an acquisition, or some other business purpose.

Types of rounds

Rounds are often described according to the nature of investors, the size of investment, and the stage of the enterprise.

  • Pre-seed and Seed rounds (also called "friends and family" rounds) are used to launch an enterprise
  • Angel rounds are early investments by angel investors.
  • Venture rounds are large investments led by venture capital firms. These are often denoted by the series of stock sold, e.g. "A round," "B round" and so on. The name of the round suggests the stage in the company's growth.
  • A mezzanine round is late stage private funding, meant to carry a company over until a public offering or major merger or acquisition
