When I’m considering investing in or getting involved with a company, there are several key factors I want to see. One of the most important is a solid founding team.
Now, we’ve already talked about how important it is to not just bet on the jockey… but to bet on the right jockey for your horse. In other words, a startup’s founder may not be the best person suited to lead the company.
However, it goes far beyond that. In fact, there’s one characteristic that I always seek out in every founder I consider working with…
I want to see that they’re action oriented – that they’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done.
But as a potential investor, how can you tell which founders have this kind of drive… and which founders will likely buckle under the pressure?
As you’ll see in the video above, it takes more than just a gut feeling.
In fact, there are four specific factors I always look for in every founder and their team before investing even a penny of my own money.
Check out my video above to learn exactly what these factors are, and exactly how to pinpoint the most action-oriented founders who are worth your while… and your dollar.
Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back soon with another update.
