DocSend's Fundraising Playbook

Welcome to DocSend's comprehensive coverage of the fundraising process through reports, webinars and infographics.

About our Fundraising Research

At DocSend we set out to provide answers to many questions surrounding the fundraising process, so in 2020 we launched the DocSend Startup Index. To date, information and trends around early rounds of investment have been mostly anecdotal and the process has been relatively opaque. But now, for the first time, the DocSend Startup Index provides a unique set of data on startups at different stages and demystifies what it means to raise as a startup. 

In 2020 we studied the fundraising process of over 600 startups at the Pre-Seed, Seed and Series A stage. The reports, webinars and infographics below are the product of our analysis of the data to help founders understand which startups were successful in fundraising and why.
