The Stake of the Founder

We've analysed founder stakes across different stages of company growth, from those that have yet to secure equity funding to those that have raised £100m+.

Equity ownership is a good incentive for startup founders to stay with companies throughout their growth journeys. But some degree of dilution is always inevitable when raising equity investment, as founders swap shares for funding. 

And so, the further along a company’s growth journey, the more diluted a founder’s equity stake typically is. Whilst the influx of capital helps to accelerate startups’ growth, this process also reduces founder control.
