Last year, we launched State of Startups to capture what it means to be an entrepreneur. We asked the leaders of venture-backed companies about everything from the fundraising environment to their working relationships with their co-founders to their office’s price per square foot. Hundreds of founders responded and more than a million people readthe results.
  This year, we aimed to refresh — and enhance — our in-depth snapshot of founders and startups across the entire tech ecosystem. We asked several of the same questions to track shifting sentiment and trends across years, but also delved into new areas such as how founders pick their lead investor and the perspectives they have on diversity and inclusion.
   At First Round, we continue to learn from founders, whether it’s through theFirst Round Review, our many events or online forums. From August to September 2016, we gathered responses from over 700 founders (from inside and outside the First Round community), who generously shared their observations, opinions and experiences. Here's what they taught us.
         The bubble is deflating.

    We asked 700+ founders to answer one of the most frequently asked questions we receive: are we in a bubble? Last year 73% said we were. While this year the majority still say yes, it’s closer to a coin flip (57%), down 22% from 2015.

    Though the majority of founders say we’re in a bubble, 9 out of 10 founders believe that it’s a good time to be starting a company. All aboard!

     Though the majority of founders say we’re in a bubble, 9 out of 10 founders believe that it’s a good time to be starting a company. All aboard!
                  Nearly 1 in 5 founders say they’re raising a unicorn.

    The unbridled optimism that drives founders is alive and well in tech: 18% of leaders say they’re certain they’ll build a billion dollar company. But that’s not to say there aren’t bumps along the way. The same percentage of leaders (18%) also report having executed a layoff in the last year.

              More founders see an opportunity for exit.

    In 2015, just one in three founders expected the IPO market to improve. This year, the IPO window has opened more; that number has inched higher to 43%. Founders are far more bullish about acquisitions, with 72% predicting increased M&A activity in the year to come.

                  From A to Z, Alphabet emerges as the acquirer of choice.

    We asked founders to write in the name of the one company they'd want to acquire their startup. Out of 150 companies named, Alphabet rose to the top as the most sought-after acquirer.

              Investors will hold the upper hand.

    We asked founders who’d have the advantage when negotiating deals over the next few years: entrepreneurs or investors? For the second year running, founders point to investors as having negotiating power, and their conviction has strengthened: two-thirds of all founders believe investors will hold more sway. Last year, just over half (54%) of respondents felt similarly.

                  Men and women disagree on the cause of tech’s diversity problem.

    We asked founders to pinpoint the main driver behind women and ethnic minorities being underrepresented in tech. While men and women agreed on some factors, they diverged on others. Men are more likely to blame the pipeline into tech; women place greater emphasis on unconscious bias and lack of role models.

              61% of founders say their boards are all-male.

    And it only gets less balanced with time. Among respondents' companies, the boards of later-stage startups are almost three times less likely to have a woman on their board.

                  Founders predict tech will reflect the diversity of the U.S. in 2030.

    On average, respondents believe tech is 14 years away from mirroring the gender and ethnic makeup of the United States. Over one quarter of founders believe parity is more than two decades away.
