Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
So how do you know when to pull the trigger and invest in a startup?
After applying the investment thesis, check for the following:
There’s a strong team with integrity, industry knowledge, and business experience.
They have product validation and market validation - the product works and people will pay for it.
They have the prospects for high growth and are demonstrating it at some level now.
Their business is scalable.
They are building a business that other companies will want to buy - eventually.
The potential return is large, so the investor can reach a 44% IRR or better.
Finally, you can help the startup in some way such as finding other investors, providing domain knowledge, or making other meaningful connections for the startup.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
