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 fnd 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.
