Hi! First of, thanks for hel ing out on this task!
Here are the directions/ste s:
1) Download excel and look at the columns and rows I made.
2) The task involves getting info for the com anies on the s readsheet. The columns are all titled a ro riately and all you need to do is fill each cell out with the a ro riate information you get from the internet/research. For the most art, you will be using AngelList.But also info from major tech news sources is great: AngelList (Angel.co), VentureBeat (venturebeat.com), TechCrunch (techcrunch.com), Crunchbase (crunchbase.com), AllThingsD(htt ://allthingsd.com/), BusinessInsider (www.businessinsider.com), Inc (www.inc.com)
3) Please do 2 rows as a trial for the com anies on the 500Startu s Tab on the Excel Sheet . I'll give you feedback and then you can com lete the rest. Doing this within the first day of being hired is im ortant.
Descri tion of Columns which you will need to fill out:
Look at Angel.co first to see if the com any is listed. If so, look to see if they have investors. If not, leave blank. Investors are eo le that have invested in the startu . This info can be found on angel.co. Make sure to get all the investors if they are available.
Look at Angel.co first to see if the com any is listed. If so, look to see if they have advisors. If not, leave blank. Advisors are eo le that advice the startu . Make sure to get all the advisors if they are available. Leave blank if no info is available.
Descri tion of Com any:
Obtain information from angel.co , or ull from o ening sentence in one of tech articles. Sim le yet substantial ex lanation of what the com any does is im ortant here. Nothing more than 4 sentences lease.
Business Model --how does the com any make money How are they thinking of making money.
Traction or Key Metrics--information on how many users they have. Or how many artnershi s do they have. Key info that hel s us understand where they are is im ortant.
Key Quotes from Articles--what are the main takeaways from the article. Something sim le and concrete and succinct.
Please find 2-4 recent articles that talk about the startu and what they have done . Some articles are just a aragra h long so lease avoid these if ossible. For some com anies that are really new you might not find elaborate articles. Still, try to get decent articles. Here's an exam le of a great article written about a startu htt ://techcrunch.com/2012/11/30/backo s-raises-1-5m-to-outsource-your-startu s-back-office-and-eventually-any-back-office/
For this section, most of the information can be found by googling their names. For exam le, if the name is Joe Klein, I would suggest to Google "Joe Klein Facebook + 'name of their startu .' The same for linkedIn and twitter. This yields more accurate searches.
A little side-note, not every com any has 3 founders so just ut as many founders as the com any says it has. In the case that a com any has more than 3, chose the CEO (chief executive officer), CTO (chief technical officer), and then either CMO (chief marketing officer), Biz-Dev, or Head of Product.
