Later-Stage Financing

Later-Stage Financing is a round that occurs once the startup has matured to an extent. Generally speaking, through the A or B round is early-stage financing. Everything after that is later-stage financing. If you were to really break it down, through A would be early, B & C would be mid-stage, and everything after would be later-stage. Later-stage is oftentimes pre-IPO. Contrast with Early-Stage Financing.
