Investors look primarily at your SDGs, team, scalability, exit scenarios and feasibility within a certain time frame.
An investor wants to gain insights, be involved in decisions or actively collaborate. Founders should deal with it at an early stage in order to get a feeling of what such a cooperation can look like in practice.
Indicators for a suitable investor are the previous investments, investor backgrounds, industry focus, the duration of the investment or fund terms. In addition, it is helpful to exchange with other start-ups supported by these investors.
Investors want to see that the founders are fully comitted to their idea, as a start-up cannot be run on the side. The inner attitude of the founders is therefore crucial for success.
Investors are sometimes notoriously impatient. So don't forget that with this form of financing you are committed to growth that can push the founders and the team to their personal limits.
Don't write mass emails. This shows that you as a founder do not seriously deal with potential investors. Present yourself with your fully completed findervest profile. This makes it much easier for the investor who fits to you.
Venture Capitalists (VC), Business Angels, Founding Angels and Micro Investors who are aligned on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
VC investors are professional investors who invest in companies with high growth potential in exchange for an equity stake. Because investments are often associated with a high level of risk, it is called venture capital.
Angel investors often support start-ups at a very early stage of development. Often even before the foundation. Most of these angels are experienced entrepreneurs themselves who, in addition to a financial contribution, offer their know-how and access to their network.
Micro ventures or mini investments are mostly made by interested private individuals, occasional investors or professional investors.
