Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso — your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
I’m often asked what venture capital looks for.
VCs look for emerging tech markets with strong growth projections.
These sectors include blockchain, AI, Data Analytics, and other strong growth areas.
They do this partly because there’s usually strong deal flow and it’s easy to explain to limited partners.
VCs also look for platform-based businesses, rather than solo products.
They look for recurring revenue
Network effect components
Very large markets
Strong teams and
A scalable business model
Also, traction in your business and exits of other companies in the sector drive interest as well.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
Let’s go start up something today.
