Did you know less than 1% of startups get VC funding? In the venture model, VCs are looking for companies that have a big market potential and a chance to a big exit. At the end of the day, they want 5-10X of their investment. The truth is, the majority of small tech businesses don't fit the venture model. And, many founders don't want to give up control of their company. They may not want an exit.
