32: How Investors’ Support Benefits an Early Stage Startup with Avi Eyal

13/05/2019

Listen on:

This week we’re going back in time to a period of uncertainty for monday.com – January 2014. We still didn’t crack the product-market fit and had very little cash left in the bank.

Many start-ups find themselves in similar situations along the way – conviction in the product is high, early feedback is promising, but the road ahead isn’t clear. In these tough moments, investors’ moral support is crucial for moving forward. What does investor support look like? How do you build it? What influences the investors’ decisions in these early stages? And what could make an investor want to double their investment?

Joining us to answer these questions is Avi Eyal, a Founding Partner at Entrée Capital. Avi invested in monday.com at the Seed round, alongside with Genesis. In this episode, he shares the thought processes of an investor that needs to make pivotal decisions quickly, all while relying on little data and taking big leaps of faith.
