Episode 4: FJ Labs’ Investment Thesis
In the third episode, I described how VCs evaluate startups by using a combination of the team, business, deal terms and whether the idea fits with their thesis to decide whether to invest or not. In this episode, I present FJ Labs’ Investment thesis.
I start by covering why we focus on marketplaces, then detail:
- Our current marketplace theses:
- Verticalization of horizontals
- Transition to supply pick marketplaces
- B2B marketplaces
- The Future of Food
- The Future of Work
- The Future of Real Estate
- The Future of Lending
For your reference I am including the slides I used during the episode.
