Top Ukrainian Startups | Seed Stage

The life of any business, including startups, is typically divided into the following stages:

  1. initial product creation and development;
  2. sales growth and organizational scaling;
  3. maturing as a business and transition to steady growth.

The first stage has many names: the idea stage, the launch stage, the startup or seed stage. We are calling it the Seed Stage and divide the life of a startup into three phases: Seed Stage, Growth Stage, Maturity Stage.

During the Seed Stage, the main task of a startup is to find Product-Market Fit. The startup founders need to have the courage to innovate, take untraditional paths and offer the world what it can't live without. This stage requires a lot of experimentation and creativity. Here, the startup is still working on the definition of the final product, service, or technology, fixes problems identified by first customers and strives for what is called the Product-Market Fit.

A startup requires much more than just a great idea - it needs time, discipline, dedication and capital. Startup funding is commonly divided in what is called Rounds. At the Seed Stage, startups attract investment in several rounds: Friends, Family or Fools (FFF), Angel, Pre-Seed Round, Seed Round.

In the past there were few fundraising options at the Seed Stage. Startups raised money from Friends, Family, or Fools or from Angel investors. However, recently many venture capitalists started investing in yet-to-be proven startups in what are called Pre-Seed and Seed Rounds, despite the higher risk of such investments and unproven business model.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
