This is a Chairman's Network Zoom event for all Members/Fellows plus Guests. Invest 1.5 hours to start on a new and trusted relationship with peer group Members.
We always commence with brief introductions- your current and recent Board Roles and a bit about yourself.
The second part is open to discussing any specific subjects, challenges or requirements that the group maybe able to assist you with and/or a subject selected by your Group Host.
The format is to maintain one conversation with questions from the Group or Host.
6th Oct, What do early-stage investors look for in a start-up?
By any measure of an established business, most start-ups are utterly un-investable. Typically unprofitable and offering only unproven promises of future returns, many will fail. So how do you pick those with a greater chance of success? We'll talk through some of the most important considerations, including:
- The team, especially the founders
- The value proposition
- Traction to date, and evidence of "product-market fit"
- Unit economics
- The market: size, competition, and defensibility
- The longer-term vision
After the meeting, feel free to connect and carry on any 1-1 conversations plus any follow up.
