A reminder of the pitch-to-investment funnel

I was reading a book about the informational asymmetry in PE and VC investments and came across an example of the pitch-to-investment funnel in a typical (reputed) VC firm. It's nothing new but I thought I'd take the time to build a small infograph to remind entrepreneur wannabes about the odds and the implied efforts they've got to make in getting a reputed VC to invest in them.

So here's the funnel from the pitches a (reputed) VC firm receives per year to the eventual investments.

Note that the funnel geometry is in fact drawn to scale — but it's a log scale.
