Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Deal flow is critical to successful startup investing.
Here are some key points to consider:
Deal flow gives you experience with founders, valuations, exits, and many other aspects of the startup process.
It teaches you a great deal about the market, current technology, and the startup ecosystem.
Deal flow gives you practice on how to analyze a pitch, what questions to ask, and what you should take away from each pitch.
Look for quality over quantity. The better the deal flow, the better your investment outcome.
Set up deal flow sources accordingly.
Start with those in your network to gain access to their deals and offer to return the favor.
Seek out quality accelerator programs to find more resources.
Consider joining an angel network for deal flow, as you can share the feedback with others.
Join online portals with deal flow so you can learn the current state of valuations, technologies, and sectors.
Reach out to venture capital, family offices, and other investors to join as a syndicate partner in their deals.
The greater number of deals you review will give you more choices as well as educate you about the market.
