Before you invest in a business or company, it is vital to assess your risks so that you can forecast your rewards. Knowing the company can help guide you in determining its financial potential and looking at whether or not it remains a good investment for you. Let’s look at five things an investor expects from a company they are invested in:
Is the company that you have invested in offering a unique or innovative idea? You need to know what the company or its platform offers as a marketable commodity. Investors will not make any returns if the stock market is already awash with the same type of products that your company also has.
Does your investment help solve a problem and/or is there market potential for your investment product? This is called the “competitive edge.” No, your investment does not necessarily need to have invented the first whatever. But it does need to show why your product or service is different than other competitor’s ideas and how it will yield good returns on the market.
2. What are the risks?
Every business or company that is being invested in has a positive spin that attracts investors and gives them a good return for their money. This is not always the case. As an investor, you must be a realist and research the risks associated with your marketable investment.
You need to research the financial health of any company you are investing in. Study its financial reports, annual reports, etc. You need to understand its potential revenue growth. Also, inquire as to the company’s debt. In summary, examine the bottom line. All this information helps investors see the long-term future of the company.
A business or company must inform its investors of the truth. Companies must be practical but also inform investors of the potential risks to the company. This is part of the business reports that investors must receive to help recognize and identify the advantages of investing in the business. After all, an investor and company’s interrelationship must be based on honesty and transparency.
Investors need to look at the company’s team and how they work. Is the management team as invested in the growth of the company just like you are. Boots on the ground is the term investors need to see when putting money into their future.
Is the company willing to work to overcome financial challenges that they are likely to face in the company’s market growth process? Investors need to know about its history and experience as its business team begins to grow.
As an entrepreneurial investor, your goal is to invest in your company to help create investment value. Investors must know how to diminish their risks to make their investments dependent on milestones. As an investor do you understand if your company is on track to meet its goals.
Investors must know as much about their company investment as does its daily management team. Your business investment changes regularly. Know what your investment’s competitive challenges may be. As a venture capitalist, you should look for companies that have the potential for a high return on your investments and with an exit strategy.
5. Exit Strategy
Every investor wants to know about exit strategies. The objective of the exit strategy is to limit your losses. Investors who are investing in a business need to know that it will have a positive return in a relatively short period of time, for example, five to seven years.
Is your company operating under the premise of actively developing its products, its innovations, its partnerships, and its network outcome, especially in mergers and acquisitions? All these factors will help expedite an exit strategy in the future.
To secure an effective exit strategy, investors must plan for every contingency. Remember that the ownership sale of a company’s principals is a smart standard exit strategy. Even experienced investors are seeking a long-term investment with an understanding that they are going to garner a positive return.
