How VCs Evaluate Ventures

Post placeholder image

HBS has a good paper discussing the framerworks VCs use to evaluate venture opportunities. Investors from Kleiner Perkins, Menlo Ventures, Trinity Ventures and Alta Partners answer questions such as:

  • How Do You Evaluate Potential Venture Opportunities?
  • How Do You Evaluate the Venture’s Prospective Business Model?
  • What Due Diligence Do You Conduct?
  • What Is the Process through Which Funding Decisions Are Made?
  • What Financial Analyses Do You Perform?
  • What Role Does Risk Play in Your Evaluation?
  • How Do You Think about a Potential Exit Route?

The paper costs $6.95, but is well worth it if you are raising capital from VCs.
