The Risks in the Deal
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In diligencing a startup, focus on the key risks. Here’s a short list to review:
The team -- do they have the skills and will they remain committed to the company?
The market -- will the market continue to grow?
The competition -- will there be new competitors that come on the scene we did not count on?
The technology -- will the technology landscape change, obsoleting the company’s tech?
The funding -- will the company be able to continue to raise funding?
The intellectual property -- will your IP adequately protect your position in the market?
The regulatory environment -- will new regulations come up that negatively impact the company?
This often comes up in the life sciences space in which FDA regulations must be achieved.
Consider each of these risks in a potential investment.
