Tech startup investment: 6 Green Flags Investors Look for in a Tech Startup

Starting any new business is a challenging and intense experience. The risks are often high, and there is no promise of success or rewards for all your hard work. The failure rate for a new business is ~90%.

There are many reasons why start-ups can fail:

  • Money running out,
  • Picking the wrong market,
  • Lack of research,
  • Partnering with the wrong management team,
  • And many more…

That being the case, in tech start-ups, entrepreneurs are often experts in their field. This can reduce the risk of failure by knowing your product, understanding the barriers to entry, and intuitively identifying with your markets.
