Zest AI Funding History

Zest AI has raised a total of $100M over the last 13 years Raising this capital resulted in dilution for Douglas Merrill despite non-dilutive funding options like Founderpath. With $100M money raised, Zest AI would have to sell for $1B, for investors to be happy. For any founders and early employees to make money, the company would need to sell for at least $100M assuming no crazy liquidation preferences.

Why are so many SaaS founders taking money from Founderpath.com instead of VC`s?
