Best practices when pursuing early-stage venture funding

According to a 2017 Report by The Startup Genome Project, there are between 6,300 and 7,800 currently active tech startups in NYC, making it the second largest startup ecosystem in the world. However, only 619 of those startups were backed by Venture Capital. This is just one example that highlights the small percentage (about 8.5% in this report) that ever see access to institutional seed funding.
