What to Look For When Investing in Companies

November 26th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am a serial investor. To date, via the fund I manage, we have invested in 11 different Internet businesses. These investments range from a hundred $100k right through to $2m. We have been lucky, the investment of $6m has grown to be worth north of $20m in just over 2 years.

We invest in Internet businesses that are generally in the classifieds or editorial segments, are in their early stages (but not at pure start up phase) and are in emerging countries.

Some when we invest, what do we look for?
