Founders prefer cash to VCs to deploy capital, DocSend data shows

Today’s venture capital market feels strange because it is not uniform. While some companies are still able to pick up mega rounds, achieve unicorn status, and even raise a lot of new capital in sectors that have seen their exit in the public markets struggle, other startups aren’t having the same luck.

After several years of capital flowing freely and the entire venture capital ecosystem and start-up market aligning with bigger, faster rounds at new, higher prices, we are in a more mixed environment today. This has made reporting venture capital totals in the second quarter a bit tricky; Yes, for example, the totals of fintech companies are falling, but they remain above the 2020 level. Is that bad or good?

To better understand where the venture market stands today, we pulled in a new dataset, this time from DocSend (former unicorn Dropbox bought the company in 2021). DocSend is best known as a software service that helps founders create and share their pitch decks with investors. As a result, it has a wealth of data on both founder and investor activity. The aggregated behavior from both sides of the investment table when it comes to seed funding is incredibly helpful and paints a picture of a diverging venture market, but not as fast as we expected. There is good news to be found.

(If you’re building a pitch deck — or wondering what one looks like — our pitch deck teardown series should be your problem!)

The difference between founders and investors that we will discuss below is not good news in rough terms. However, when we compare the data to the doom and gloom we’ve heard from some founders, the information is almost encouraging. Not great, but not terrible either. Let’s talk about it.
