answering this question:
What does an investor
really want?

on his investment
in 4-5 yrs
*
$4M
Angel : 20%Founders: 80%
Company Valua=on: $5M
$1M
*The expected growth rate & =me varies from early stage investor to growth stage investor, but you get the point
Image
$4M
Angel : 20%Founders: 80%
Company Valua=on: $5M
$1M
But, for his share
to grow 10x...
Angel : 20%

Series C
Company Valua=on
...your business valuation has to grow 40x
$1M
$10M
As the angel dilutes from 20% to 5%, for his share’s value to be 10x,
the company’s valuaCon has to grow 40x
10x
’
Through the process of
Pitching…
investor wants to figure out the
Probability
of 40x valuaCon
40x?

the probability
of 40x valuation
in his head...
