Keys to Fundraising Success – 3 things that investors look for

We asked investors what are the most important things you look for in a founder/startup, and these 3 things kept coming to the top of the list:

  • Is this business scalable?  It works for a certain group of people, but can the business be increased by 1000% or 10,000% and the same economics will work?
  • Does this technology or business model fundamentally change the industry it’s in?  Some refer to this as a Blue Ocean, or creating new markets.
  • Does the business plan incorporate for problems they may face down the road like large competitors, existing Monopolies, regulatory/legal challenges, etc.?

Of course, there are many factors that are looked at including the team, background, market sentiment, and many others.
