Raising Money for a Business Startup – How to Pick a Startup Business

In order to raise money for a startup business, we need to select a business.

According to the SBA, there are approximately 28 Million Small U.S. Businesses.  That is a large field!

In order to narrow down the field, we created a checklist.  This is our wish list…

– Scalable

– Profitable

– Produce cash flow relatively quickly

– Helps another one of our portfolio companies

– Interesting and/or fun business

– Strong likelihood of success

– Can we add value

– Compatibility with their team – matches our core values

– We like the business

– Defendable IP

– Our vested interest
