Making a Marketplace: A Checklist for Online Disruption

Download to read offline

On November 13, 2012, Bill Gurley, a partner at Benchmark Capital, posted a remarkable essay on his blog. In it, he described the, “10 factors to consider when evaluating digital marketplaces.” Given the tremendous value marketplaces are known to create and how hard they are to get right, we found this essay to be a goldmine of insight. We wanted to digest Bill’s post into a more memorable format.
The result is this brief checklist we hope will help take some of the luck out of evaluating marketplace businesses. As Bill wrote, “It is unlikely that you will find a marketplace opportunity that would score ten out of ten with respect to this list.” But according to Bill, the odds of success improve the more of these characteristics the business exhibits.
