. If followup is needed, we'll contact the founders and set up a meeting. If both sides are interested in proceeding, we'll conduct a short assessment and diligence process and offer founders the opportunity to present a more formal pitch.
We review startups in two ways. The first is similar to many seed investors. We look at the founding team, the market opportunity, the competitors, and the go-to-market strategy. Our outlook tends to be longer term than most institutional capital, as we don't have LPs or a fixed time window for return of capital. We are content to hold a business demonstrating favorable returns on equity forever.
Separately we assess the technical requirements. We need to scope the level of effort necessary to complete the project and ascertain whether we have the technical expertise and background to make an optimal partner for the founders.
