Based on the findings of our investor sentiment survey, it is evident that investors are highly optimistic about a recovery in the pace of startup funding in the second half of 2023. According to the survey, 64% of respondents anticipate a recovery in H2 2023, while 36% hold a contrasting view. It is worth noting that historical data suggests a modest increase over H1 2023 for H2 2023, but it is unlikely to be a game-changer. In the current economic environment, startups should prioritise the development of sustainable, long-term businesses that can withstand the challenges at hand. It is important to highlight that investors have become more cautious and now emphasise financial efficiency, moving away from the traditional "growth at all costs" mindset.
