More FAQs to Come
At what stage does COLLAB invest?
In general we look at a combination of the following metrics to start our evaluation.

Product: Even if it is a pieced-together Minimum Viable Product (MVP) we’ll happily take a look. Our model requires some proof so we don’t invest if the capital will be spent on your MVP. If you have questions or need resources to get your MVP launched connect with Collab Studio here.

Revenue: As mentioned in the Product criteria, we need some evidence that customers will pay full price for your product. A free, deeply discounted, or pre-revenue concept is probably too early for us. At the low end we will take a look at companies generating around $2k in monthly revenue and invest in companies up to about $1m in annual revenue.

Path to Customer: Our model works best if there is a pathway to revenue, so we like to see at least some evidence of acquiring customers outside of your immediate network (friends, family, colleagues).

Please note that like most savvy investors, we will occasionally invest outside of these parameters so please don’t consider these as absolute. We strive to be helpful and still want to hear about your company.

What is the typical investment size?
We invest between $150k – $1M.
Do you invest outside of Atlanta
Yes! Currently, we are able to invest in the US and US Territories.
Does my business need to be a C-Corp, LLC, etc?
We do not have a strong preference for one particular business structure. Our model works well with a C-Corp or LLC.
I'm seeking investment, how can I share my business with COLLAB?

We are always evaluating companies for our deal flow.
