## Notes - A venture backable business is a company whose business model has the potential to generate significant outsized returns. - If a business doesn't potentially cause a big impact in a market worth billions, neither generates enormous annual revenue, then it isn't a venture backable business. - The pillars of a company venture backable are: - **Team**: the team is passionate and deep understand the industry and the customers they're working on. They have a long period of recognizing inefficiencies in the industry they've worked in. - **Market and Vision**: the market should worth billions. Also, the founder's insights about their idea should clarify that they're the ones to solve a critical problem. - **Traction**: the team has to be able to execute the idea. The founders can use milestones to prove traction. For example, milestones might include the initial [product/market fit](/zettel/product-market-fit) as the app's number of downloads. ## References - [Alex Gold.
