At Mattermark we’re all about answering questions with data, arming investors, founders, sales, marketing, biz dev, M&A — any dealmaker, with the information they need to intelligently move forward with a transaction.
For founders, ranking investors can help answer extremely important questions:
I’ve tackled some of these questions with four unique analyses… but we still have a long way to go to collect all the data needed — especially when it comes to partner attribution and actual fund performance data. As Jonathan Weber of The Information explains in his post last week (paywall), historically the VC industry has been extremely opaque.
There are other questions we could answer but choose not to focus on, like which investors have made the most investments or deployed the most capital. While these are interesting questions from a macro perspective, I don’t believe they actually help founders make the decisions listed above.
