Most early stage companies in Hong Kong are run by first-time founders.
Investing in these first-time founders is risky and failure rates for early stage investments in Hong Kong are higher than more mature markets like Silicon Valley which means more due diligence is required.
However, with so many deals to analyse it can be hard to spend enough time with each investment target.
At Kanshuu we are serial entrepreneurs ourselves. We utilise our broad experience set to identify the key success factors in your investment targets, whether technological or otherwise, as well as the most common reasons for early stage company failure:
- Founder’s execution risk
- Lack of market problem validation
- Lack of product/market fit
