Startup Boards -- Startup Investor Skills -- Managing the Portfolio
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Startup investors need to hone their skills in order to succeed over the long run.
Key skills include:
In managing a portfolio, you need to provide support to the startup at some level.
It’s best to invest in businesses that you can help, so this should be part of your investing criteria.
You need to track the companies in your portfolio and keep up to date with them at least once a quarter.
At some point, you may need to help the startup generate an exit by making introductions to companies who could acquire the startup.
A potential buyer will want to see the startup’s organization align with its own structure.
The investor can help the startup align with the acquirer.
This process becomes the growth strategy of the startup.
