Before A, I did join a start up company right after the series B funding. Left after 2 years of work, exercised the stock options. Recently the company got series D funding, and apparently doing quite well. The company is not even close to unicorn thing and doing b2b.

How many series D funded startup usually exit either being acquired or through IPO? How long it might take if ever happens?

    Cool dude. My ex got engaged after I broke up with her. Does that count as an exit?

    You should probably have some friends there who can speak to the companyโ€™s situation better than randoms on blind. But series D indicates that investors believe in the company pretty strongly so itโ€™s a great sign.

    VCs have a rule. If company cant reach more than 500M in EV, it will be positioned for Sale. Otherwise, IPO. Series D is a mezzanine round, less VC and more PE shops participate. Itโ€™s less common.

    Your EX sounds great. Do you plan to get him/her back together?
