How do Silicon Valley’s top investors identify promising startups? It’s easy to tell a good startup when it has traction, with revenue and user growth increasing exponentially. But how do you tell if a startup has potential in the early stages, when it has hardly any revenue or user growth? In this program, we give investors insights into how to analyze, evaluate and invest in promising startups globally. This includes:
What constitutes a good team?
How do you evaluate the market?
How can you tell if there is a product-market fit?
Why is design thinking so important?
What questions should you ask the founders?
How can you tell if customers truly need the product or service?
Which business models work best and which tend to fail?
How do you tell if a startup has problems? What are the red flags?
What’s the best way to perform due diligence This investor program can be customized so that it’s a single lecture, one-day program, or three-day course, which includes seminars, case studies, analysis, workshops and startup pitch sessions.

WHY CORPORATES NEED US
The world is experiencing an unprecedented number of startups being launched every day and week.
This is fuelled by the radically lowered costs of starting and operating a company.
Many of these startups develop disruptive technology or business models, but many are struggling to scale beyond the first 5-20 people and initial revenue.
They might not have the skills, the funding, or access to the right distribution network.
On the other hand we are seeing that big corporate’s are facing an increased pressure to come up with radical innovation to sustain growth and profit.
However, these companies tend to have problems of coming up with such radical innovation internally and they don’t have the network to find the very early stage companies that could provide this.
The big companies have all the assets and skills to scale things, but first they need to find them.
SFO Ventures wants to solve this problem and bring the two parties together.
