Tiger Global…

  • Speed: It moves very fast on deals, closing some in just 3 days.
  • Huge war chest: Its massive pile of money is matched by few in venture capital, and the firm is willing to spend.
  • Resources: Tiger Global pays for portfolio companies to access high-priced consultants for advice (e.g., Bain).
  • Pre-emptive offers: Tiger Global approaches startups that aren’t even in fundraising mode and throws big offers.
  • Long-term holders: Since Tiger Global also operates public market hedge funds, it provides price stability for startups because — unlike traditional VCs — it doesn’t have to distribute funds after an IPO.
