36|86 uses a proven tool, the VIRAL Pathfinder, to match startups with VCs looking for dealflow in a specific stage and sector.

The VIRAL (Venture Investment-Readiness and Awareness Levels) Pathway is a framework developed by our friends at Village Capital, a Washington, D.C.-based VC, to help entrepreneurs and investors use the same language to find common ground and mutual opportunity.

For 36|86, we’ve turned this framework into a fun interactive quiz to help startups discover how ready they really are for investment, using the same yardstick as investors.

To begin, startups answer questions like “are you more like Steve Jobs selling Apple II out of his garage or Steve Jobs when he launched the iPhone,” and you’ll get a number that corresponds to the growth phase of your company, from idea to exit. These questions are designed to get to the core of your team’s experience, product or service value proposition, target market size and business model, among other categories.

Did we mention this works? As Ross Baird, CEO of Village Capital, explained, 92% of startups who have used VIRAL said the framework made them better prepared for investment.

The VIRAL Pathfinder quiz uses the same language and measurements as VCs to determine where you are in your path and how the right investor can help move your business forward. No need to swipe right.

Once you’re in Nashville for 36|86, we’ll create networking opportunities with investors, based on your VIRAL number. Since investors take the quiz, too, you’re guaranteed to have no-fuss matchmaking.
