The investor wants someone whose
eyes shine with enthusiasm, someone who will do everything in his power to ensure the success of the enterprise, someone who will sink his teeth in and give it everything he’s got.
The investor wants someone who
is knowledgeable in his field, who is familiar with the needs of his target audience, and who knows what solutions have already been put out there.
He wants someone with experience.
And if it was an experience of failure, that’s okay. Investors like to see that a person is not discouraged, that they try again until they succeed.
The investor wants to see
a winning team, a team of people with a special connection between them, a team that has been through obstacles together, a team of individuals that complement one another. If you’re on your own, you should present your ability to create such a team.
