According to Fundable, 57% of startups take out loans, and 38% are launched thanks to friends and family money. Don’t have savings or relatives who could invest in your idea? That’s not a reason to give up on the business launch — 2021 is considered to be the most fortunate year for startups raising venture capital. 

CB Insights data shows global funding rose 157%. One of the explanations for that boom is the lively IPO market.
