Abstract:This research aims to show an overview and the biggest pain points between the perception of investor readiness by entrepreneurs and the perception of investor readiness of these start-ups by investors. This research divides investor readiness into four dimensions of readiness namely, technology readiness, market readiness, management readiness, and financial readiness. By combining these four dimensions a complete view of investor readiness is given. In order to obtain a clear overview of the perceptions of start-ups and investors similarities and contradictions have been identified. Data is retrieved by conducting interviews, including a questionnaire, with several entrepreneurs and an investor who knows these all these entrepreneurs and their start-ups very well. By using this overview investors and especially entrepreneurs get insights in each other’s way of thinking and attitudes, which could lead to more understanding for each other. This could increase the fruitfulness of the cooperation between the two parties.
