According to Gosia Karas, Investment Director at SoftBank Group International, the time that passes between investment rounds is getting shorter and shorter.
“Rounds are getting more compressed these days,” she says in the first part of “Evaluating a Growth Stage Company”, at SoftBank Group Operator School, season two.
“What we’ve seen would have taken many many years before and (…) situations when you would raise a certain round and then raise the next one, say two years later… it’s all getting compressed,” says Karas.
Growth is no longer as strictly defined as it used to.
Karas also speaks about:
- Growth-stage deal flow processes
- Timeline of a deal and due diligence process
- How Growth Stage VCs differ from Early Stage ones.
