the 10x Club – how internet startups can be evaluated by VCs

Bill Gurley wrote a detailed blog post about All Revenue is Not Created Equal: The Keys to the 10X Revenue Club  which I stumpled upon, literally using the service. It is a purely financial perspective on Internet startups, but it gives a comprehensive overview of a VCs evaluation scheme. Have a detailed look on the article, just to summarize the 10xClub is all about (according to Bill Gurley):

  1. Sustainable Competitive Advantage
  2. The Presence of Network Effects
  3. Visibility/Predictability Are Highly Valued
  4. Customer Lock-in / High Switching Costs
  5. Gross Margin Levels
  6. Marginal Profitability Calculation
  7. Customer Concentration
  8. Major Partner Dependencies
  9. Organic Demand vs. Heavy Marketing Spend
  10. Growth
