Investor Connect Podcast

Benefits of a Platform-Based Approach

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

A platform-based approach to your business brings many benefits 

Platforms make it easier to use a recurring revenue model. 

Investors appreciate the value of this revenue model.

It brings predictability to the forecast and makes it somewhat easier to manage the business and raise funding.

With three metrics, cost of acquisition, churn rate, and growth rate you know how well you are doing. 

There are other benefits to a platform-based approach.

By focusing your development on one platform the product gets better every day increasing your reach to new customers and keeping existing ones.

It also reduces your cost because you are continually adding to your base platform and not spending resources creating new products from scratch.

It helps you focus your team as everyone works on the same platform,  reducing distractions.

All development results are available to all customers so there’s no resource spent on porting features to other products.

Platforms bring efficiency and revenue gains compared to the individual product approach.

Consider focusing your product development on a platform.

 

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.

On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Pedro Sorrentino, Founder & Managing Partner at Atman Capital.

Located in San Francisco, Miami, and NYC, Atman Capital is an early-stage startup, investing in technology and technology-enabled startups in the US and Latam. They invest in the following themes: B2B software, Commerce, Consumer, and Fintech. At Atman, they partner with their customers for life. They try to offer a life-long product that improves over time from work done via Atman Bequest and the Atman Egregore. 

Atman Capital is specialized in scarce structured opportunities not available at traditional asset managers. Divided into tailored pods, founders vibe with each other and work together to build the best version of themselves, personally and professionally.

Pedro started his career in Venture as an associate at FCVC. This remarkable firm seeded category-defining companies such as Coinbase, Instacart, Gitlab, Flexport, Shippo, Webflow, RapidAPI, Bigfinite, Aircall, and several others. Later, he co-founded ONEVC, where he led investments in Rappi, Pipefy, Kovi, CodeCov, Immi, RocketChat, Maximus, EmCasa, HeyDoctor (acquired by $GDRX), and Apozy.

Pedro has an MS Degree from Colorado University. During his time at Colorado University, he founded two startups. The first was Recomind.net, which he later sold to an e-commerce conglomerate in Brazil called Buscape. The second was Slumdog Productions, a profitable events company that connected startups and investors.

Pedro talks about the VC industry, the ethos of his company, the connection between VC and AI, and much more.
