The Solution To Your Funding Dilemmas

Dear Reader, this week we've brought a solution to your funding dilemmas!

The one thing we've been reading in the news for the greater half of this year is all the ruckus about a recession and the funding winter. I came across this cartoon and I knew nothing could be more apt to depict the scenario.

Media is notorious for blowing situations out of proportion. That doesn't mean things are looking bleak for early-stage startups too.


That is why this week in the Favcy Review section, we're clearing the air of all rumours, as we decode why early stage investors need to pay no heed to this "funding winter". Grab your picnic basket and get ready to pick-up fresh early-stage deals for your portfolio and consider it an onset of spring.

In other news, I'm delighted to inform you that 100% allocation has been taken in MercuryEdRead about it below.

In the Angel Bytes section we are explaining the specifics of TAM, SAM and SOM.

Lastly, in the Future@Favcy section we've got open positions here at Favcy in case you're looking to join our boat.

Do share your feedback on this effort. You can mail us at

Cheers 🍻

Is the sky the limit? Deconstructing TAM, SAM & SOM

By Ninie Verma, Content Associate, 1stCheque by Favcy

  • Pitches have a tendency to showcase the Total Addressable Market. The sky then, seems to be the limit for the product.

  • But that is obviously not how large the prospective company's consumer-base is going to be. That is why, in this edition of Angel Bytes we explain everything about TAM, SAM and SOM so that you can make informed decisions when assessing a startup's market-fit!
