How to Interview an Investor

How do you interview a possible investor

It’s important to be prepared to answer any questions venture capitalists may ask you about your past experiences. You must be prepared to answer questions regarding your experiences in the industry and your previous deals (how you contributed value). You should be ready to answer questions regarding general investment questions like how to calculate a cap-table, or the most important industry ratios and metrics.

In preparing for a meeting with an investor, it is important to keep in mind that investors are looking for individuals who have a genuine interest for startups at an early stage. Bring enthusiasm to the interview and concentrate on what makes you excited about seed-stage companies. That will set you apart from other applicants and demonstrate to the interviewer that you’re a good fit for their company.

Additionally, it’s crucial to be familiar with the industry-specific risks associated with investing in a startup for example, the typical exit strategy for a seed or angel investment, as well as the different control mechanisms available to investors such as drag-along rights, veto rights, and board composition rules. It is also essential to be aware of the typical timelines and steps involved in the process for closing an VC investment to be able to discuss how your experience fits into that timeline.
