Many startups limping along
Yet first-round financing for startups fell last year. Seed round (right before launch) is down 30%.
More established companies did a little better in attracting money.
It's hard to value companies that are not making any money. Art, science, and a lot of supply and demand is how one guru put it.
Ironically the less it costs to get a company off the ground, the less value there is.
People who invest bet on more value down the road--but that could also be zero.
Boy that sounds great, doesn't it? Bubble, anyone?
