This page will focus on strategic issues related to starting a company and being an entrepreneur.

What do VCs look for in evaluating a business idea/plan;

Visionary Founder: If an entrepreneur truly has vision, he or she will lead a start-up to a compelling market.

Huge Potential Market: “Potential” market is key here. We are not looking for a complex analysis of big, existing markets, as we realize that existing companies can serve them if they are this obvious. But the potential for a huge outcome must be present, even if the path is uncertain and likely to change.

Unfair Advantage: What is the most defensible element to your business? It can be a technology advantage, a business model advantage, or a network effect, but it must be real.

Low Capital Requirements: In our view, the most sustainable technology companies (such as Microsoft, eBay, Google, Cisco, Yahoo, and many others) paradoxically consume very little capital on their way to immense profits.
