What do growth investors look for?1 min read
On the latest episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, we take you back to the SaaStock18 stage for a panel discussion on what growth investors look for. Jos White, General Partner at Notion Capital, moderates the panel featuring Nicola McClafferty, Investment Director at Draper Esprit, Michael Brown, General Partner at Battery Ventures, and Tom Mendoza, Venture Investor at EQT Ventures.
Growth investors like Jos, Nicola, Michael, and Tom look through a different lens for Series B/C rounds as compared to earlier stage venture investors. How they make decisions and what they see as the key drivers of a high-quality growth round tends to be different at this stage where they expect millions in ARR, a solid product-market fit and an international outlook.
They share views on:
- Growth round readiness and what needs to be in place to even start thinking about Series B
- Their own key considerations, including metrics and parameters
- How investors make sure Series B funds will be spend the right way
Bringing investors like Jos, Nicola, Michael and Tom and hundreds more to share their insights as well as meet excellent SaaS companies at SaaStock is one of our favorite things. To make sure you can soak up their actionable advice during conference sessions as well as sit down for many potential funding chats with the myriad of investors from around the world, you really want to bring a co-founder or exec along.
