I'm wondering how do these companies make enough $$$ to stay in business?

You borrow 50M in funding from venture capitol groups[^]. You promise them X in return if you are successful. You have Y years to make a return on the investment.

Looks like they are in the third round of funding[^].

Most startups fail. Some of my friends did the same thing, after 3 years they ran out of money and were hired at F---Book as developers. About 22% of startups fail in the first year, 30% in the second year, and about 50% around the fifth year.
