Yes. The politically correct answer would be 'Of course not!'

I mean, do they care about it? Not in the sense of it being a 'must-have' but more from using it as yet another data point to embellish their rationale for investing.

In an ideal world, the investors would do all of the below:

  1. Have a thorough understanding of the market, the opportunities and the potential
  2. Think like entrepreneurs and are constantly coming up with ideas and when they see one that aligns it sends fireworks up in their head
  3. Will ask for and analyze detailed metrics and know what the data means to the future prospects of the company
  4. Will talk to the larger team (pool of people beyond the founders) to understand their ability to build a business, sustain it and scale it
