Annual Recurring Revenue

Detailed Description

Total Funding refers to the overall amount of capital that a company or project has raised from various sources, such as investors, venture capitalists, grants, loans, or other forms of financing. It represents the cumulative sum of funds acquired throughout the company’s or project’s lifespan.

How To Calculate

To calculate it, one must add up all the funds the business has raised from different sources. For example, if a startup starts with a seed funding round of $10M, followed by $20M Series A funding and $40M Series B funding, then the total funding amounts to $70M.

The benchmark can vary across businesses and industries. However, 5-20% CAGR is seen as not strong for small businesses. 20 – 50% is considered good, and anything above 50% is considered great for a business and showcases its upward trajectory.
