Investing In Startup Companies – for Corporates

DESCRIPTION

Investing in startup and early-stage companies as a chosen strategy to quickly and/or alternatively get new products or services or to launch R&D projects, without setting up an internal team might be some of the arguments for looking at these companies for investment. However, it is not without challenges to investing in startup companies, so how do you best address these challenges before investing is part of what this workshop is about. Also, this workshop is focused on how to become more comfortable with investing in startups, avoiding the “janitor” role, and defining the most important telltale indicators on a startup company’s potential.

SPECIFIC ISSUES AND KNOWLEDGE NEEDED TO MAKE DECISIONS

  • Discussion on the existing startup evaluation models
  • How to screen the market for truly relevant startups
  • What are the telltale indicators – also based on the industry?
  • How much or how little should be invested in startups – degree of financial exposure?
  • How much should you control and monitor the startup
  • Avoiding the “janitor” role
  • Communicating and motivating the founders after the investment
