How to Invest in Business
If you’re already in the habit of saving and investing regularly, the next way to accelerate your net worth is by having your own business. Businesses don’t have to be hugely complicated and don’t always required large amounts of cash up front. The number one thing you’ll need, at least in the beginning, is time. And time is a hugely important thing to think about before choosing a business direction. Ask yourself how much time you’re prepared to give to your business, both at the beginning when you’re setting it up and on a day to day basis to make it a success. If you already lead a busy life and aren’t prepared to sacrifice your other commitments, the best option would be to invest as a silent partner in someone else’s early stage business or use one of the many platforms like Crowdcube.com to find a start-up which offers good potential. The problem with investing in someone else’s business though, is that you’re not in control and you’ll only ever receive a small percentage of the profits that a business makes. If it turns out your business partners are more Del and Rodney than Jobs and Wozniak, you could find yourself relying on the lottery to become a millionaire. A much better option is to have your own business and an easy way to start that is through platforms likes eBay, Amazon or even Etsy. Dropshipping companies have made becoming an online retailer easier than ever. They offer a wide range of stock for you to sell and they manage the shipping and returns of any items. All you have to do is research which items you want to sell, decide how much you’re going to mark them up and load them into your online store. Unlike a traditional shop, there’s no big upfront costs for storage space or for the stock itself so you can be up and running with a minimal amount of investment in no time at all. The top performing eBay shop in the UK last year pulled in monthly sales of nearly one and a half million pounds. That’s just shy of eighteen million pounds in one year alone without even having to change out of your pyjamas. But if the idea of spending your days uploading stock photos on to eBay in your nightwear doesn’t appeal to you and you have a bit more to invest up front, there are other options. One of these is to buy the rights to sell a product from one country in another. Let’s say you’re on holiday in the US and you come across a particularly good product or an emerging trend that you think there’s a market for elsewhere. Do your research and see if it’s possible to buy the selling rights to the UK or wherever you think you can make it work as a viable business. Keep in mind though, a product being successful in one country doesn’t guarantee its success in another. Don’t let your holiday mindset cloud your judgement. The last thing you want is to wake up the day after your holiday with a bedroom full of Uncle Sam figurines. If you’re not lucky enough to come across a “killer” product on your travels – you can always look at international franchise opportunities on the web. I spoke to a guy recently who acquired the UK rights to an American basement waterproofing product and he’s already turning over more than £2 million at high margins. And all because he sat on the committee of his local golf club and was asked to find a solution to the damp leaking into their basement! Buying the rights to sell a product in another country might not guarantee its success but it does provide you with a strong grounding to launch your business with a support network from the parent company to help it grow. But if you don’t want to set up a business from scratch, even with someone else’s product, you can always buy an existing business. Distressed businesses, where the owners have either lost interest or don’t have the creativity or mindset to make it work, can be relatively inexpensive. Typically, owners of distressed business will be desperate to offload them and that puts you in a winning position when it comes to agreeing a purchase price. This is a more advanced strategy but it’s how I started with what is now the Elite Investor Club. Strong sales and marketing skills are the most important asset when it comes to turning a business around and if you want to truly scale your business, purchasing multiple businesses with similar or complimentary lines and centralising the back office and overheads is the way to go. Investing in business of any type requires real commitment. It’s not just your money you’ll be putting on the table, but time, talent and energy. It’s not for everyone, but if you’ve got what it takes there’s no better route to real wealth that I know of. If you think you can remain a wage slave and achieve life changing financial success, be very careful out there.

Want to invest in startups with a sound business model: Kunal Kapoor
Bollywood actor Kunal Kapoor is no stranger to startups. Ketto, the crowdfunding platform he founded in 2012 with Varun Sheth and Zaheer Adenwala, this month won the Wharton India Startup Competition, getting $30,000 as prize money in the bargain. And now, Kapoor wants to turn investor. “I’m looking to invest in a couple of startups,” Kapoor tells Techcircle.in. His criteria is simple: Startups that have a solid business model. “When it comes to movies, I do only a few films in which I believe. Similarly, I would like to invest only in startups that I really believe in — companies that are looking to build a solid business and have a solid revenue model as opposed to ones that are just looking to increase their valuation and cash out,” he said. Meanwhile, Ketto is planning to raise another round of funding. “We are looking to raise another round of funding. We have only scratched the surface now,” says Kapoor. “Worldwide also, the crowdfunding industry is growing and a lot of that growth is led by Asia. I think Ketto is best placed to lead that growth. We are looking to expand throughout the country and Asia and, of course, we are looking for funding for that,” he added. In July 2015, Ketto Online Ventures Pvt Ltd, which runs Ketto, raised Rs 4.4 crore ($700,000) in a fresh angel investment round led by one of its existing investors, Pradyumna Dalmia, co-founder of Calcutta Angels, and Sudhir Rao, deal champion of The Chennai Angels and co-founder of IndusAge Partners. In 2013, it had raised Rs 77 lakh in angel funding from Club ah!, a network of investors and part of ah! Ventures, and not-for-profit angel network Calcutta Angels. Ketto, which helps non-government organisations and individuals raise funds for social and creative causes, had enabled Indian luger Shiva Keshavan’s participation in the 2014 Winter Olympics, besides raising funds in the aftermath of several natural disasters. “One of the big campaigns we did when we launched was a fund-raising drive to send Shiva Keshavan to the Winter Olympics. We have helped athletics go to Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games besides helping people during disasters. We have helped raise funds in the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake, and during the recent Chennai floods and the Kashmir floods last year,” says Sheth, who quit financial services firm ICAP, to start Ketto with Kapoor and Adenwala, a former Directi Group executive.

Sanjay Mehta on investment preferences and startup ideas he won’t fund
Sanjay Mehta, a serial entrepreneur turned investor, gets nearly 200 startup investment proposals every month. The early stage investor has backed about 40 startups, both in his personal capacity and through various angel networks. “Startup investments allows investors to move the needle and make a meaningful contribution to the venture, unlike other assets classes (equities, gold and others) where you have to wait and watch how the market reacts,” Mehta told Techcircle.in. Going forward, Mehta says he will explore investments in early-stage ventures that specialise in big data, marketing automation, productivity enhancement, location services and quick services restaurants besides medical devices. Mehta lists marketplaces, e-commerce platforms and home services ventures’ among the 15 startup ideas he would refrain from funding. Mehta’s portfolio includes names such as Zippr Smart Address, AllizHealth, Prettysecrets.com, and Poncho (Box8.in) besides others. He is a member of Indian Angel Network, Mumbai Angels, Venture Nursery, B2B1K Ventures and CIO Angel Network. As an entrepreneur, his most recent venture was MAIA Intelligence. Last year, its business was recently sold to publicly-listed Datamatics Global Services. Mehta last invested in Bangalore-based Green Enabled IT Solutions Pvt Ltd, which operates IT reverse logistics startup Blubirch. For more logon to vccircle.com/vcc-tv

Startup Valuation - How Are Startups Worth Billions?
You’ll learn about Startup Valuation in this lesson, and see how a traditional methodology such as the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) analysis applies to early-stage tech startups with no revenue. http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" Table of Contents: 2:59 A DCF Analysis for Piped Piper 9:01 What’s Required for a Startup DCF/Valuation to Work 12:35 Recap and Summary How Are Startups Worth Billions of Dollars? “I don’t understand how tech startups can be worth billions of dollars – many of them aren’t even making money yet!” “How can an unprofitable company that isn’t even generating revenue possibly be worth so much? Doesn’t this violate all the principles of valuation?” We get questions like the ones above all the time. The short answer is NO, startup valuation doesn’t violate all the principles. You can still use standard methodologies such as the DCF, but you have to use radically different assumptions that make the analysis less grounded in reality. For the numbers to work, the startup has to start making A LOT of money very quickly in the NEAR FUTURE. If it takes 10-15 years to generate revenue, it will be almost impossible for the numbers to work; but if it happens in the next 2-3 years, it might be plausible. As an example, we look at Pied Piper in this lesson, the fictional company from the HBO show “Silicon Valley.” They make money with a file compression and storage app, and they’re aiming to get hundreds of millions of users and then get a tiny percentage of them using their paid services. So if they currently generate no revenue and have just received $100 million in funding at a $1 billion valuation, is that crazy? A DCF for Pied Piper We assume massive app download growth in the early years, with the company reaching ~500 million annual downloads and ~150 million paid users by the end of Year 10. Revenue goes from 0 to nearly $2 billion over that time frame. The company goes from negative Operating Income to nearly $500 million (25% margin) and almost $300 million in Free Cash Flow. We use a 100x EBITDA multiple to calculate the Terminal Value (arguably fair for a $2 billion company growing at nearly 40% per year). These assumptions are highly speculative, and so we also have to use a much higher Discount Rate: 50%, compared with the standard 8-12% figures you see for mature companies. As a result of all this, far more value comes from the Present Value of the Terminal Value: 99% here, vs. 50-70% for normal companies (and ideally less than that!). The whole valuation is dependent on a huge number of assumptions that are impossible to know in advance: Will billions of people download the app? Will ~5% of users convert to paying customers? Will the company be able to monetize in only 2-3 years’ time? These assumptions might turn out to be true, but there’s a very high chance they might not be – which explains the 50% Discount Rate. Startup Valuation Myths So the DCF does “work” for startups; it’s just not that useful because of all the required assumptions and the inability to guesstimate the numbers for a pre-revenue company. For a valuation to make sense, the company has to start generating money *very quickly* – if it takes ten years for that to happen, the numbers will be even harder to justify. And since the majority of the implied value comes from the Terminal Value, the Terminal Multiple and Terminal Growth Rate are incredibly important. They matter more than long-term profit margins because almost no value comes from the Present Value of Free Cash Flows.

Startup Valuation made simple by Serious Funding: The VC Method
Hello, You have a great startup but you also want a great startup valuation. You have to understand how VCs work when they value companies. Let’s start with their first startup valuation method which they modestly called the VC method . 1. The startup Valuation VC Method The VC method helps you understand how VCs value the money they are about to put in your startup. Basically let’s say that one VC imagines that he should at least double the value of its investment every year (yeah you read me right…that means +100% each year). As he knows that your startup will probably not be sold in one year time, the VC imagines how much money he will make in 3 years (when you will sell your startup to Google…). To do that, he takes your financial projections (or his financial projections if he estimates that your figures are grossly overestimated) and he multiplies your year-3 figures by a selected multiple. He calls that the EXIT value. Example Your year 3 turnover is estimated at USD 100 m (by the way, well done and please allow me to invest…). The VC will imagine that at this time he will be able to sell your startup for 10 times the turnover to Google (in his dreams if actually thinks about 50 times but today he decided to be reasonable). He then values your startup (In year 3) at a whopping USD 1 billion. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW !!!!!!!!!!! Hum, well, that’s in 3 year time… And remember he wants to double its initial investment every year. That’s where the infamous discount rate gets on stage. The VC will then do a backward valuation and says : “If year 3 valuation is USD 1bn, that means that year 2 valuation should be USD 500m, year 1 startup valuation should be USD 250m and year 0 valuation should then be USD 125m once I have put my money” So if we are on year 0, you ask for a USD 25m to the VC he will then tell you : “OK buddy, I will give you USD 25m in exchange for 20% of your company (25/125)”. Simple, no ? (and the good news is that you still have 80% of the billion (well in 3 years…)) 3 concepts to resume it: The Exit value and the exit multiple: what the VC thinks the company will be valued when he will sell it (generally a multiple of something like turnover, EBITDA, EBT etc…) The discount rate: the rate of growth the VC is expecting on his investment (generally varies from 20% to 100% depending on maturity of company, quality of management, competition etc.) The postmoney valuation : your present startup valuation including the money of the investor. I am now sure that you master the startup valuation VC method. However, if you do not want to bother, please visit seriousfunding.be and they will do the work for you. Have a nice funding and see you later for alternative valuation methods (that will allow you to value no-revenues startups). Bye

Due to popular demand, I’ve decided to finally tackle the billion dollar beast. And while it’s not easy to have a conversation about startup equity without putting the faint of heart to sleep, it’s territory that simply can’t be overlooked. Because for any growth-oriented entrepreneur entertaining the idea of handing out equity in their company, the math absolutely matters… And one small misstep can be the difference between accelerated growth or the speed pass to startup hell. So if you’ve ever wondered what a healthy equity breakdown looks like for all key stakeholders (founders, advisors, investors and team members)... … then give this new video a quick spin. As you can see, used appropriately, equity can be an amazing way to incentivize team members and attract key advisors and investors. Like I did with Uber’s Travis Kalanick But if you don’t enter the conversation with clear knowledge of the right benchmarks to shoot for… … then you’re setting yourself up to either give too much away or lose talent and investors to other startups playing a much sharper numbers game. So get your numbers right. Make the right offers. And then step up to the plate and use equity for the growth accelerant it is. To splitting the pie… (and watching it grow), – Dan Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too: https://youtu.be/hWA1b8owinc ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

Angel Investors are the experienced entrepreneurs who themselves has been through the same phase from which you are going through and the ones who understands what it takes to create a billion dollar company out of an idea. 👉It is true that “What business makes great is the great idea” But business require funds to make it big, A guidance from a more experienced person can increase the probability of your business success as well. 👉An angel could be: - a succesfful entrpreneur - princiapal/partner at a VC firm - executive, cxos at companies in your sector - other rich/susscessful people you know 👉Angel investors (not venture capital firms) are the most likely candidates to get your businesses from a piece of paper to a proof-of-concept. These angel investors typically come in four distinct groups: 👉Individual Angel Investors- As for finding angel investors directly, this is the hardest route, by far. First, because they prefer to stay anonymous. And, second, because they don't know you at all. Sometimes rich individuals have built formal family investment offices, with professional managers screening deals for them. But,if they can afford a family office, they prefer to invest $5MM+ in more typical venture investments, not $500K for a startup. Preferably, you need to find an individual that understands your industry and business model and can bring real value to the table. If they have first hand experience in your space, and they think they can help you accelerate your efforts, it is easier for them to get over the investment hurdle. So, identify those individuals, and try to figure out someone they know, who can credibly make an introduction for you. As an example, if you think you have the next great video gaming technology, I would research what similar video game technologies have recently been sold (meaning the founder just got very cash rich), and reach out to that founder to tap into their expertise as an advisor, board member or investor. Notice, I didn't lead with investor. You need to establish credibility with this individual before jumping into the investment question. And, if he doesn't want to invest, he may know others in the industry that would, so ask him for references. Venture capital firms are also aware of key angels in their market, so reach out to them for guidance. Angel List is a particularly good resource that makes finding angels for your region/industry easier than ever, so check them out as a good place to start. But, again, look for credible relationships to help open the door for you, preferably to investor is your home market (as most angels tend to bias local investments). 👉Angel Investor Networks This category, is my favorite category: networks aggregating angel investors. Like the family offices, investors set aside funds for angel investments, screened by a professional team that sources deals for the network. So, the individual angel gets to keep their anonimity and have the comfort of a team of smart managers doing due diligence on investment targets, on their behalf. So, instead of one angel investing $1MM by themself, 100 angels aggregate $100MM and invest as a group in the deals they like the best, individually or collectively. And, on the flipside, it is much easier for you to raise your full amount needed, with one phone call, instead of calling the numerous investors individually. ------------------------------------------ 👉हमसे फेसबुक में जुडें --https://m.facebook.com/PandeyVital/?ref=bookmarks ------------------------------------------------ | LIKE | SUBSCRIBE | SHARE | -------------------------------------------- Background music Credit- NirvanaVEVO by Chris Zabriskie is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://chriszabriskie.com/uvp/ Artist: http://chriszabriskie.com/

How can I invest in startups?
There are several avenues to building an early stage portfolio. One is to invest with a fund manager, who will select the investments for you. These managers provide the service of selecting and vetting the companies in your portfolio, and in exchange they typically take a 2% annual management fee, as well as 20% of any gains realized on your portfolio. Another alternative is to invest yourself through a community of vetted investors such as 1000 Angels where you get access to direct investments. 1000 Angels investors are able to choose their own investments, curated from a selection of high-growth, high-return-potential startups. Members are able to invest in the companies directly, so they do not pay any management fees or carried interest on the investments. Members also have the freedom to choose how much they would like to invest in each company and when they would like to invest. Fund investors are required to invest whenever the manager makes a decision and a capital call, providing much less freedom to adapt your investments to your current views on the market and financial situation.

Can you generate real revenues without having anything built? The answer is yes, and I personally believe that it’s the only way to do it. A couple weeks ago I was in San Francisco hosting my Sales Pipeline Intensive event for my SaaS Academy clients, and one of the speakers John (founder of five9.com, $1.2B saas company) echoed a similar sentiment... It was funny because we hadn’t connected prior to his talk. So I did some research on his latest company JetBridge.com, and it mentioned all the different areas they were innovating sales using AI/Machine Learning, and when he comes up, he just smiled and said “oh, all that’s bullshit” ???? It was all made up. :) Well, in his defense, at this point they did have a product in the outbound calling space that did have revenues and customers, but the rest was just positioning... .. to allow them to get customers and learn fast. And that’s what I want to teach you today as you continue on your journey building a software company (or any business for that matter). You don’t need to have it built before you sell it. And even better, if you don’t, I’ll show you a way you can get your future customers to finance its development... Watch this week’s video to learn the exact same structure that one of my coaching clients Ryan used to generate $200K for his first prototype that he pre-sold. When you build innovation there’s a few things you need to understand... one of the first is you can’t sell it to big, old, slow moving companies. You need to find innovative and early adopting companies... ... so I share a framework to make this easy called the Technology Adoption Curve. Also, once you have the idea, most founders will build it first then show it to customers. But what I recommend instead is to build a Clickable Prototype, design a Customer Advisory Board and then co-create it with them. Finally, if you want to ensure you get real commitment from your customers, then you’ll need to get them to throw down with some money. True “Customer Validation” doesn’t occur until there’s some kind of financial commitment made... ... without it, it’s just a bunch of nice people grin [email protected]*ng you. It’s the kiss of death for a startup founder. Have you ever tested an idea for your startup? What creative ways - like my buddy John - did you use to test your idea? Leave a comment below and let me know. I share a few others in my video from my previous startups Flowtown & Clarity as well. Can’t wait to read yours. Till next week. Dan “sell before you build” Martell Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too: https://youtu.be/wlouEWnEFVQ ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

How to fund a startup: The 5 phases of funding a startup plus the top 5 finance tips for startups
How to fund a startup: The 5 phases of funding a startup plus the top 5 finance tips for startups In today’s business, good ideas are not enough for success. You will need investment in order to grow your business. It is important to understand the different phases for raising funding for your start-up. There are 5 phases as follows: Phase 1 - Seed funding and angel investors – This usually comes from the entrepreneur, family, and even crowd funding. This money allows you to solidify a team and establish a solid business plan. Phase 2 – Round 1 of funding Series A funding – Initial VC funding usually looking to invest and not get a return for 10 years. Phase 3 – Round 2 of funding Series B funding – provided the business is doing well then you may receive another round of funding. At this stage in the VC lifecycle the VC is looking at the portfolio of investments and weeding out the poor performing ones and putting money into the ones that are successful. It is also possible to get additional C, D funding rounds etc depending on the progress of the business. Phase 4 – Expansion By now your start-up will be 3-5 years old and hopefully running at a profit. Funding in this stage will be either subordinated debt or preferred equity. This is your “growth” money and helps to push your business into the next phase. Phase 5 – IPO or Sale By now your start-up is 5-10 years old and the venture capitalists are ready to get their return when you sell or go public with an IPO (Initial public offering). VC firms can enjoy up to 700% return on investment when their companies go public. Top 5 Finance Tips for Start-ups 1. Get a good accountant. 2. Set up company and limit liabilities 3. Cash is king and the life line of every start-up. You need to be very aware of when cash is going out and coming in. 4. Make sure you try and find subsidies available to help your start-up. 5. Revenue – understand where the money comes from and try and find recurring sources of revenue. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIypuA7lS-FsVG6cMlNCK2w?sub_confirmation=1 Check out some of our other videos Compensation claims - how long should it take https://youtu.be/NuxfrgSTg78 LLC vs S Corp https://youtu.be/4xNCnf9hitw Minizing tax https://youtu.be/ybSnFb6rx6Y Kickstarter secrets ep 1 https://youtu.be/2EG78JNZ7nA
