Entrepreneurs frequently devote so much time to raising capital that their vision suffers and they lose momentum. The cost of establishing a startup may have declined in recent years, but technology development expenses have increased significantly. Sometimes even the most innovative and well-managed startups lack adequate access to technology talent, capital or networks. Given the extremely low appetite for risk among investors (especially outside the Bay Area), seven in ten startups are either moderately or significantly underfunded.
