What Typical Investors Look For:

According to MicroVentures webpage, investors look for:

  1. A unique or new idea. If it’s not new, they want to see an innovative spin on old technology.
  2. Market traction, which could be in Alpha or Beta customers, partnerships, revenue, or other metrics that define success. They’re not just looking for good ideas—they want ideas + execution.
  3. A solid team with experience in their industry.

In other words, our investors look for three things: Good Ideas, Market Traction, and a Good Team.

Therefore, SW gApps is soliciting other talented team members at this time and is preparing to remain relevant in the Software marketplace by leveraging recent Google technologies of Actions on Google, Progressive Web Apps, App Maker, and Add-ons for both product offering and custom development services.
