A seed level startup is a company or organization in its earliest stages of development. These startups are often characterized by their lack of significant funding, limited staff, and small customer base. Many seed level startups are founded by entrepreneurs who are looking to solve a problem or fill a need in the market. These startups typically have a limited amount of resources and are often bootstrapped, meaning they are self-funded. Seed level startups often have a shorter timeline to achieve profitability or become “unicorns” (startups that have achieved a billion-dollar valuation).
