Abstract

Marston Venture Management operated as the venture capital arm of a leading European business school and managed a growing portfolio of seed and pre-seed investments. Four new proposals were now being evaluated: (1) ProCom; (2) Oxiden; (3) Darian Holdings; and (4) Glencoren, each operating in different sectors and each at different stages of their product and business development. Charles Poulton, Marston's newest Investment Executive, had been asked for his view of which of these four businesses represented the most promising entrepreneurial opportunity. He knew that rival venture capitals had been approached - Marston would need to act quickly if it wanted to get involved. It was up to Poulton to decide which one to prioritise.
