I am an entrepreneur who has started two companies (self-funded) and been in the tech space for six years. I don't come from an Ivy and have not worked in investment banking or private equity. I have worked as a Financial Analyst for few years. What I do understand is company's product, willingness for customers to pay, current value and potential future value the product could deliver. I think if there is an opportunity for a product to grow to be 10x, 100x, or 1,000x larger than it is today, and if the business does grow by several orders of magnitude, will it be attractive financially?
