Hi Rod, Hi All,
I have just joined - happy to be here. Being an entrepreneur myself and having successfully raised round one capital i've actually been on the other side of the table. What I appreciate in Rod's global value chain is that it incorporates an extremely important factor that is so often glossed over and that is the core competencies and drive of the team. Evaluating an idea quantitatively is fine but without a team behind it to execute the proposed model - its just a few lines on a page.. You're probably all thinking "that goes without saying" but i think it's probably one of the most important factors for a VC to look for in any project.
Kees van der Heijden coined a term the 'business idea' back in 96 to which I expanded and completed research back in 2000. I have attached an article which explains my approach. It incorporated +ve & -ve driving forces, both internal & external which if articulated, add greater rigor in assessing your client's CVP, competencies, CA, & overall commercial uniqueness.
Paul, thanks for the document. Can you upload it again - unfortunately I cannot open it.
Hope this works
for some reason I still get a page that looks like this:

It it of use to you? DavidBy the way I had to focus on the BM itself and exclude environment and execution to that aim. However I agree that's important and I know of research that focusses specifically on that.

This link will take you to the results of a study with a venture capital investment fund on how to evaluate business models.
