There are five elements every company looking to raise venture capital or go for an IPO should have, said Itay Falb, a partner at KPMG Somekh Chaikin in Israel. Falb spoke Thursday at Calcalist’s third annual Mind the Tech conference in New York.
The first element, according to Falb, is generating a profit-oriented business model; the second is implementing financial and IT systems early on; third, the company needs to consider the tax policies in the country or countries where it is looking to do business; fourth, the company should consider its cap table—putting in order the percentages of its ownership, equity dilution and value, and investors; finally, a company looking to raise money should establish a strong financial team.
