Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Investors in the startup space have a certain expectation for returns. 

Startups raising funding should keep in mind these expectations and only approach them if you have a deal that is in the game for it. 

Venture investors including angels, venture capitalists, and limited partners, typically look for a 20-30 percent internal rate of return (IRR) over a 5-year time horizon. 

This can also be expressed as a“two and a half to four times” the original money invested.

If it takes longer than five years, then investors will look for a 5-10X ROI to maintain a 20-30 percent IRR.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
