Startup Deal Flow
Most venture capital investors have reason to complain about the amount of pitch decks and business plans landing on their desks. The effort that goes into screening the lot is near endless, and the quality is mostly poor. In my support to startups I show them how to provide investors with the right information at the right occasion. This already supports venture capital investors by gaining efficiency in their deal flow. In the end you only need the right investments to apply, the others are obsolete. Although this situation is utopia, there is a lot to gain in most of the deal flow processes we have seen. To support investors, my approach mostly is a mixture of strategic focus, marketing & sales. I help you to attract a high amount of fitting projects, and identify investable ventures quickly.
Selecting startups to invest in is not an easy game. Although it's not like roulette, it's not all in the hard facts and numbers as well. So what is the balance between investing a groundbreaking technology compared to investing in a great team? We think to find the balance it needs a mixture of experience and skills within your team. Based on this we can define a process that allows your team to spend time and effort on the non-obvious topics. The time and effort you have just gained by leaning your deal flow ;)
Now that you have decided to invest in a startup, spin-off or venture, the lengthy part of your journey starts. To gain the value that leverages your return you will have to work with your investments instead of pushing them. You can do this by offering a customized program for your portfolio companies, similar to an accelerator. Another option would be to provide them with tailored support. Since your company is full of investment experts and not experienced entrepreneurs, offering startup support might not be that easy. Together with my partners I offer portfolio support as a service, so let's get together.
