How to Interview an Investor

As a pre-MBA or recent graduate, securing your dream job is not an simple task. After you’ve submitted your resume and passed the initial screenings, you will be asked numerous questions about your background as well as your work experience and capabilities. The investor is the one who decides whether or not to invest in your idea. This is an extremely important interview. Preparing for these interviews can aid you in completing your interview and obtain the funding you need to help make your dream of becoming an entrepreneur reality.

What size do you see the Market for Your Product?

This question is a means an investor can determine how much potential there is for your company. They’ll be looking to determine how large the market is for your products and services and how you plan to tap into it. Be realistic and ambitious in your projections.

What do you think are the primary threats and challenges facing your company?

While no business is without its risks, investors will be interested to learn what you are planning to do to avoid them. A well-planned plan for the company’s future will demonstrate your confidence in the ability to expand and make the business successful.

Do some research on the investor before your interview. This will provide a greater insight into their passions and the kinds of companies they have invested in, and how they work with entrepreneurs. You can also search for interviews that they’ve recorded either online or in print where they discuss their investing principles and the characteristics they’re looking for in a company.
