Guy Turner, of Hyde Park Venture Partners, recently visited FirstPathway Partners' project, the Global Water Center, to discuss matters pertaining to startups. More specifically, Turner addressed how startups, like those within the Water Center, can raise capital and work with entrepreneurs.
“Turner said that as an investor, he’s considering three core factors while reviewing a startup for possible investment:
- Does the company have a management team with experience in the space they’re entering?
- Is there a big market for the goods or services they provide?
- Is there evidence that the company is growing, the product fits the market and that customers are buying into its vision?
“We love those types of opportunities, but we’re also very broad investors,” he said. “We look for opportunities in a lot of different verticals.”
