Prarthana, we're looking at team, traction, and market as our primary criteria. We do prefer companies which have a beta or MVP, since that will be easier to take to customers and get feedback. However, if you have an exceptional team or are in a market that is very interesting, then that could balance out lack of a v1 product.
