One fundamental problem faced by venture capitalists and angel investors is like this.
I/We have evaluated the business proposal and roadmap of this startup. It looks great. The concept is up-and-coming. But how do we know that the technology developed is ‘capable’ of delivering the required
- Is the design/architecture/code ready for ‘production’? Will it scale as new users are added?
- Can the development team quickly deliver the changes/features while maintaining stability and quality?
If the startup can deliver on the technology promise, we are wastisavingy.
A team that looks great on paper (or in a PowerPoint presentation) may deliver mediocre results. A great business plan may be backed by something other than an equally good technology implementation and execution.
How do we evaluate the technology capability (including the architecture, design, quality of source code, etc) and judge the probability of success for a startup?
