How we beat the odds and achieve our dreams after the valley of death


The valley of death is a common term in entrepreneurship and venture capital; it refers to the challenge of progressing from the idea and launch phase to a more stable growth phase despite a negative cash flow. This is the phase in which most entrepreneurial dreams fall apart; statistics show that around 90% of companies fail here. Based on experience and research, here at JNE we have developed a method for taking our portfolio companies through this phase successfully.
