Dilution

Generally speaking, as subsequent financing rounds occur, existing investors will own proportionally less of the company than they did previously since additional equity is generally issued as part of a new financing round. Dilution is not necessarily a bad thing _ since new stock can be issued at a higher price, you may own a smaller piece of a larger company, which means the value of your investment is actually higher than it was previously.
