We all know starting a business or new offering is hard. But starting it just before, or during a global pandemic and navigating it without a historical reference for guidance, is even harder. Fortunately, there is a tax credit solution for those who started a new product, service, or business after February 15, 2020, to help alleviate the financial burden associated with lost revenue or shutdowns due to COVID-19. Eligible startups may qualify for tax credits as part of the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) Startup Recovery provision.

Startup studios are gaining steam across the angel investing landscape. With numbers like they are reporting, it’s easy to understand why. As the Global Startup Studio Network (GSSN) researched last year, the early signs of studio data are just the beginning for the growing expectations. Eighty-four percent of startups coming out of studios go on to raise a seed round. Of those startups that make it to the seed round, 72% advance from seed to Series A, compared to only 42% of traditional startups.
