The Challenges Investor Face Investing in Startups
Based on our experience working with investors, we have learnt they often experience the following challenges:
1. Getting early stage access to startups.
2. Lack of evidence of a startups search finding a desirable, feasible and viable business.
3. Lack of true transparency about startups progress.
4. Lack of alignment on startups readiness for investment.
A startup accelerator can help with some of these challenges. A traditional startup accelerator is typically a fixed-term, cohort-based program, that includes mentoring and education, which finishes in a pitch event or demo day.
