Investment Strategy Criteria

A key component of identifying and evaluating venture opportunities is developing and maintaining an in-depth understanding of the investment environment in the segments we are interested in. Because many of FSV’s investments originate in some way from FSI’s consulting business, investment professionals have a deep knowledge of a company’s markets, customer needs and economics, likely adoption rates and management team. FSV leverages this combined knowledge and experience-base as it assesses potential investments.

FSV’s criteria for evaluating investment opportunities include the following:

  • Clearly defined market need that provides an attractive return on investment to its customer base
  • Attractive market segments with large market potential
  • Innovative products protected by intellectual property or other defensible barriers to competition
  • Probability that the company will be able to achieve and maintain a leadership position among competitors
  • Sustainable business model with a clear road to profitability
  • Experience and talent of the company’s management team
  • Current and potential valuation which provides for an attractive return
  • Identified exit strategies
  • Strong co-investors with common goals and objectives for the investment

FSV invests as a lead investor and as a co-investor, collaborating and investing with other leading venture capital firms. In addition, FSV selectively undertakes deal origination, seeking co-investors for its originated deals. Above all, FSV seeks to build strong syndicates to work with and support portfolio companies.
