How to interview an investor

It’s important to be prepared to answer any questions an investor from a venture capitalist might ask you about your past experience. You should be ready to answer any questions regarding your experience in the industry and the deals you’ve made in the past (how you added value). You should be prepared to address general investment-related questions like how to calculate a cap table or the key metrics and ratios of an industry and, in addition, specific VC questions about market sizing and guestimates.

The most important thing to keep in mind when getting ready for an interview with an investor is that investors are looking for someone who is interested in early stage startups. Bring an abundance of enthusiasm to the interview and pay attention to what gets you excited about seed-stage companies. This will distinguish you from other candidates and show the interviewer that you’re a great fit for their business.

It is also crucial to be aware of the risks specific to the industry when you invest in a start-up. For instance it is important to be aware of the typical exit strategy for an angel or seed investment, and the different control mechanisms that investors have available, including drag-along rights and veto rights. It is also essential to be aware of the common timelines and the steps in the process of closing a VC investment so that you can discuss how your experience is incorporated into the timeframe.
