Finding Quality Deals

Finding Quality Deals

July 12, 2021 by investor

As a startup investor, you will find there are many deals to consider.

In fact, there are too many startups to diligence and pursue.

You want to build quality deal flow channels that meet your criteria and screen out the noise.

Quality sources often have experienced entrepreneurs working on their second and third businesses.

While accelerators, incubators, and universities provide an important function in the startup community, the vast majority of startups from these programs are not ready for investment.  

In most cases, they need at least a year before they are ready for investors.

Emerging tech hubs are good sources for quality startups with minimal noise. 

Online funding portals are becoming the go-to place to find startups.

In your network, you’ll find some investors have developed relationships with professional groups that provide quality startups. 

Set up relationships with these sources to maintain your deal flow.
