Angel investor in 30+ startups. Partner and Founder K5 Ventures. President, Tech Coast Angels.
Hands on expertise on product specification, goto market, pricing, customer acquisition, pitch preparation and fundraising.
I help with an overall view of product strategy, whether it is in a startup or a growing company. Encompasses product roadmap, market fit, pricing, customer acquisition, setting up traction and revenue milestones.
Help founders pitch their startup by focusing on the essential parameters and foundations that investors care about. Have helped many startups get funded, and as an investor, I am regularly involved and up-to-date on what is being funded and why.
I have helped raise more than $100 million for various startups I have been working with or involved as advisor. Once a few ingredients are in place, I can be very insightful, building pitch decks and working through deal terms and structure, and of course identifying investors
Whether a company is in earlier stages of product/market fit or in revenue and growing, the constant validation of the business model and how it is relevant is critical.
How to build robust business model is an art and a science. Many early stage companies have difficulty building out their core business models while focusing on product and customer acquisition. Establishing metrics that can show how the business is progressing is key
I am experienced at helping companies think through their business model and develop metrics within it that can be tracked and easily explained to all stakeholders, including investors.
You certainly can:
1- check other similar questions related to your idea
2- ask experts how to plan your customer segmentation and validation
3-look for experts that can help you understand the data you have gathered via research and/or customer validation.
These are obvious suggestions but you want to leverage experience and expertise when it comes to validation. Do make sure though to have done your homework and enough research beforehand. You don't want to be ready for a pivot right after a call.
Good luck and contact if needed.
