Abstract: This research study is a quantitative study that aims at investigating criteria of venture capital for considering investment in start-ups in Thailand. There are four main methodologies that include 1) literature review, 2) content validation – expert interview to examine context consistence, 3) empirical study through observation and in-depth interview with six samples: venture capital investing in start-ups at seed stage, early stage, and later stage, two companies each, and 4) analysis, synthesis, and conclusion through content analysis. The research findings show that there are fourteen criteria with seven dimensions the venture capitals consider for their investment in start-ups, which are 1) market, 2) product or service, 3) business, 4) people, 5) financial, 5) risk and 6) government. These findings are as guidelines for self-preparation of the Start-ups toward fundraising capacity, including business development for sustainable competition.
