Connecting venture builders with venture capital and private equity

April 11, 2022

This whitepaper is about the investor and venture builder perspective on the acquisition process, specifically on finding an acquirer/target. It is based on a study performed by Christian Bentvelsen in cooperation with Entweder. This study contains 5 in-depth interviews with venture builder founders/CEOs as well as an online survey filled in by 56 Dutch private equity (PE) or venture capital (VC) respondents. This study finds that having a good network influences the likelihood of acquisitions tremendously and is crucial in finding a suitable buyer for ventures.

It also substantiated the neutral stance of PE and VC towards venture builders caused by the lack of track record, worries about the cap table, and perceived lack of focus of venture builders. Furthermore, the study found that VC investors put more value on innovation, growth potential, and ownership structure than PE investors. Based on these findings, a 5-step approach to finding a suitable buyer is proposed.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
