It was great to speak to @JohannaCampion, Venture Partner at @ukaeroaccel, earlier this month and hear her insights as an investor, board member and mentor. We've pulled together our key takeaways for early-stage #founders here:
Q: How can #startups best work with #corporates?
A: Avoid any bad surprises by mapping the decision making/procurement/onboarding process for each client project to understand exactly how to get to a signed contract, how to go live and when payment will actually arrive
Q: From your most successful #investments, what does a good founding #team look like?
A: A good founding team has strong relevant skills for what they are planning to build and a clear understanding of any key skill gaps in the team and how they will plug them
