Business Models Matter

Ann Miura-Ko, Floodgate

FLOODGATE Fund co-founding partner Ann Miura-Ko believes it’s the business model that matters most, rather than the business plan. A well-thought out business model that is data-driven and scenario-focused will be seriously considered. According to Miura-Ko, models do a better job of unearthing assumptions about a company’s users, customers, pricing, demand creation, sales channels, supply chain, and overall logistics – all critical components to building a successful venture.
