Scoring our founders was exactly as I hoped it would be. Founders I intuitively feel are great scored well. I also really like how Koble’s algorithm can determine the optimum co-founding team configuration.

FAQ

Koble is private, by default.

No one can see any information about the startups in your deal pipeline who you send to Koble.

At Koble, we are very much data-focused. For us, data is at the very core of our product. To score a startup we need to receive the qualitative and quantitative information about a startup. We use this information to provide you with data-driven insights to augment your investment analysis.

Therefore, we take the respect and protection of your data privacy and security very seriously.

No.

We’ve built algorithms from the ground up that can score and grade a startup and benchmark it against thousands of others. We evaluate team, market, competition, traction and go-to-market, product, business model, timing and financial viability.

We make all these scores clearly visible and auditable to you in clear and detailed reports. So you can efficiently triage deal flow on a like-for-like basis.

Koble ranks the startup into an overall percentile. We also give individual rankings against team, market, competition, traction and go-to-market, product, business model, timing and financial viability. As we know different investors prioritise different elements when assessing an opportunity.

We know different investors place different levels of importance of elements of a startup. For example, some may only consider post revenue, whereas others don’t place importance on early monetisation.

As they say, if everyone thought the same then we wouldn’t have horse races. So we’re working hard to build functionality so you can configure how your scores are generated. We'll let you know when it's ready!

We don’t tell you whether or not to invest in a startup. That’s your job. You’re the expert.

We help you triage dealflow. So you can put your analyst to work more efficiently and de-risk missing the next Facebook.

We agree - there is a lot of complexity and variations to consider. We firmly believe there will be a generational shift in how data is used to make early stage investment decisions. We compare our work to the first actuarial or public market investment algorithms.

History shows us that data takes over all walks of life. It wasn't that long ago that investments in public markets were informed by which journalist you could take out for lunch, and multi million dollar ad campaigns were decided by a small group of "Mad Men". Even every major football team now has an entire function dedicated to step by step player analysis.

Reports are emailed to you and also held within your Koble portal.

If you disagree with the content and ranking in our report we encourage you to discuss this with us.
