How risky are early stage businesses?

Investing in an early stage business is speculative and risky. After all, the majority of these businesses fail or do not deliver returns to their shareholders. Do not invest more than you are willing to lose.  Even if a business succeeds, your investment could be illiquid for a long time and if the business has follow on rounds and chooses to raise more capital, the equity you hold in that company may become smaller.
