Startup Insider: How to Build an Investment Thesis

Wherever you are on your investing journey, it’s important to have guiding principles. Once you understand your own interests and strengths as a startup investor, you can start to build an investment thesis to guide your decision making. 

An investment thesis is an argument for a particular investment strategy that’s backed by research and analysis. It gives you a framework to work within so you’re not making investing decisions at random. It can also help you analyze previous investment decisions — and whether those decisions were good or bad.

In this episode of Startup Insider, Vin Narayanan and Allison Brickell discuss the benefits of an investment thesis, what factors investors should consider when crafting one, how many they should have and more.
