Looking for Capital?

We want entrepreneurs succeed. And as such, we are more than happy to give you as many tips as you need to prepare your story. As serial entrepreneurs, we never understood why VCs are so secretive – to better understand your “Real You”? Give me a break. Se here is what we focus on:

What we are looking for when interviewing for funding:

  1. TEAM TEAM TEAM
    There is nothing more important than an amazingly smart, agile, mindful and intelligent team
    Great teams find solutions to any problems, weak teams can’t even succeed with the greatest product
    We are looking for founders teams who complement each other, especially in the sections of technology, marketing and finance. We won’t invest in solo founders.
    We are looking for carefully selected top notch teams of employees and even temps
    If your team is weak – we maybe able to help you fix that.
  2. SOLUTION
    We still have millions of challenges in our world. Lack of purified water in some areas, poverty in others, traffic congestion, lack of education, digitization, handling the rise of AI, energy shortages, transportation and logistics issues  and on it goes for hours. Teams who try to solve any one of those kinds of issues are what we hope to see. Bold ideas even if it looks ridiculous are really welcome here. You have seen our philosophy: No idea is too bold, no solution to crazy, we won’t turn you down because you are out of your mind.
  3. VISION
    Let us know, where do you want to take it. What will you do in 5 and in ten years? Nobody knows? You are absolutely right. But we can make educated prediction when we look around, when we understand that in 10 years from now, there will be no nothing mainstream which has not been developed already today. Let us know what your prediction is and how you got there.
  4. BUSINESS MODEL
    History has told us the best companies had the best business models, not necessarily the best product. Some people even say the best product never won. We are very interested to hear about why you constructed the business model you have, how it is received in the market and if you see a disruptive element in your business model.
  5. GO TO MARKET & TRACTION
    Now this is another utmost critical point – almost as critical as your team composition. Billions are invested in innovation creation, in the process of invention, ideation, and patents. Yet a catastrophic amount of those ideas never made it to market. We need to know how you will make a difference by getting your solution into the hands of hundreds of thousands of users. Tell us how you generated traction and what you will do to grow your traction every single day.
  6. CAPITAL NEEDS
    Of course you will need capital to do what it takes to bring your company all the way to the top. Share with us how you will spend they capital you are raising and in what time frame. Try to estimate consecutive rounds and when you think you can do an IPO. If you have a slide that says EXIT STRATEGY, remove it. It would end the conversation. If you are not have the balls and the energy to g all the way to the top, we won’t be the right partner.
  7. PLAN GOING FROM THERE
    Assuming you completed your round how would you see us help you beyond just capital? What else would be critical to your success that we maybe able to contribute. We are prepared to get you in global markets through our network, raise more capital through our peers and get you all the way to the top because that is all we can imagine to do.
  8. FINANCIAL – HOW TO GOT HERE
    We are rarely looking back – but we learn from the past and so we want to understand how much revenue you made so far with what. We want to get your current financial early on.

Oh – sorry – the product. Yes tell us a bit, but you and we know your product will look rather different in 2 years from now.
