You’re ready to build your product, but you need help getting there. Pre-seed funding is an early funding round where investors will provide startups capital to develop their product in return for equity in the company.
During this stage of a startup, founders rely on partners' help and dip into their own reserves to get started.
Because so many early-stage startups are looking for financial backing, the number of companies that actually receive pre-seed funding is relatively low. Investors may consider thousands of startups and only invest in a few.
