I think VC is as much about gut feel as it is about rigorous investment criteria. In fact, many very successful VCs will tell you that they've turned down investments in some of the world’s greatest companies. Is this proof that VC investing is much as an art as a science?
1. Team – Do they have the gravitas to grow the company from £1m to £100m revenue?
2. Revenue/Traction – Are they able to effectively monetize or will they constantly need follow-on capital?
3. Scalability – Could this investment realise 50x-100x?
4. Competition – How do they stack up? Will the company be wiped out or are they able to grow acquisitively?
5. Exit Opportunities – How will I get my investors’ money out?
What is your VC investment go, no-go advice?
