Hi there, tech addicts! 👋 We’re back with the third episode of our Venture Talk Podcast.
✨ Our guest is Ondrej Bartos, Partner @ Credo Ventures.
“When we invest, it’s always a combination of factors. What makes me invest? I think it’s fair to say many things have to fall in the right place. We have to like the space the startup is in. We have to believe that the solution to a problem is strong. That the opportunity is big enough, that the founders are great, they are solid executors, they can learn fast, and they listen to guidance. At the same time, we have to like them personally.”, says Ondrej.
