An open discussion between startup founder and venture capitalist who chose to invest:
Venture funding is one of many ways available to an entrepreneur to finance a growing company. Once the entrepreneur has turned heads in the venture community, selecting the right VC is as important as having the right idea at the right time. Selecting the right VC can be the turning point that shapes a startup's future success.
At the same time, before the "VC hunt", it is very important to understand the process of how venture capitalists choose or screen their investments, what they are looking for, and how they think. What does it mean for them "the attractiveness of the opportunity"? How is the market size, the strategy, the technology, customer adoption, competition, the management team, and the deal terms are considered. How do VCs valuate their risks?
