The second is just crazy, both passion and capability around whatever the product or service is. And a lot of people say I'm just looking for a passionate founder that can figure out anything. I think that's BS. You need passion and capability. Then they don't have to be the one that's the expert, but they better have it on their team or have a plan to get it, because if I'm going to invest and not own and operate the company, it's their job to bring that capability along with the passion.
And then I would say third, it's got to be something that is special. And it doesn't have to be a new product but maybe its delivery mechanism is different, or maybe the route to market for the service is different. There needs to be some uniqueness and differentiator, otherwise, you're not like one in a million, you're one of a million.
So I look for those three things. I will interrupt if I feel a sense of lack of authenticity, or if I don't feel that their message is clear. If I start to get a little muddy and I'm actually confused at what your business does, I'll interrupt right away. One, I don't want someone to waste their time. Two, I don't want to waste my time.
