500 Startups is a venture capital firm that has invested in a number of companies, including some high-profile startups like Twilio and Canva.
I'm curious to know how much equity 500 Startups takes in its companies. Does it vary depending on the stage of the company? Does it take a larger stake in companies that it perceives to be higher-risk?
I'm also curious to know how 500 Startups' equity stake compares to other venture capital firms.
