Do I Have a Venture Deal?

1.5 min read Do I Have a Venture Deal?

If you are having a hard time deciding if your venture business is worth investing in, or are just not sure how to value your venture, we have a very handy tool to help you secure an investor with confidence.

Well, Do You Have a Venture Deal?

Before using the calculator, consider if you have a deal that’s in the game for venture funding by asking these questions:

  • Is it a high-growth company?
  • Is it scalable?
  • Do you have an experienced team ready to join?
  • Do you have a platform-based business, or is it a single product?
  • Do you have recurring revenue?
  • Do you have virality built into it?
  • Do you have network effects in it?
  • Are you addressing a large market?
  • Do you have a clear competitive advantage?

The more you can answer yes to these questions the more you have a venture business that qualifies for venture funding.

TEN’s Venture Funding Calculator

This can be a lot of information to sort out, so we’ve come up with an easier way: our Venture Funding Calculator. Just answer a short list of questions and automatically get results showing how fundable your company is.

The calculator provides a quantitative score of how investors, like VCs, angels, and family offices, will value your deal based on the team, product, revenue model, value proposition, exit potential, and other characteristics of your startup.

Scoring levels:

  • 90-100: Strong venture interest
  • 80-90: Medium venture interest
  • 50-70: Some venture interest
  • 0-50: No venture interest

The score you receive highlights where you currently stand, and what you can do to improve your score. A score above 50 means your startup has enough merit that investors will give it some consideration. A score above 80 indicates medium interest, while a score over 90 will translate to strong interest from investors.
