Investors Focus on Management Teams

I read this on Inc.com’s website. I thought it was interesting. Ashton Kutcher says he invests in management teams. Go figure! That’s what I repeatedly tell people investors seek. I devote a page to that in many of my presentations. A great management team can take a mediocre idea and build a really good company. A mediocre manager team can kill a great idea and a great company. Here’s the excerpt from “Would Ashton Kutcher Invest in You” by Nicole Carter (to read the rest of her comments on other topics, click on the link.)

“Would Ashton invest in you? Ashton Kutcher took the stage at TechCrunch Disrupt this morning. Interviewer Charlie Rose asked him how he decides which companies to invest in. Kutcher, the actor-and-media-company entrepreneur who’s invested in Hipmunk, Blekko, Path, and others, said he doesn’t care at all about market potential (“I’ve become immune to is people talking about market cap,” he says). Rather, he’s looking for a strong team working extremely hard to fill a need. (My bolding.) A good indication of future success, he says, is when founders are working hard to keep servers from crashing at the start.”
