Getting the right fit

Stephen McKeown, Chief Executive Officer of Analytics Engines

20140221-Analytics-Engines-007“Any startup has a journey to go on, first customers, crystallising your business model, growth.

But as much as your team will have to go on that journey, so too will your investors. Getting that understanding right has to happen for success to follow.

A good investor can offer good advice, but also knows when the team just needs to get on with it. It’s not a one size fits all approach. You need an investor who can back their investment at the crucial times in the development of the company and will have the capacity to do so.

The good times are always good developing an early stage company but it is when bridging the setbacks that you know that you got it right.”
