Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
A startup investment goes through a series of stages.
It starts with the pitch presentation in which the startup introduces the deal to the investors.
Then there’s the first follow-up meeting in which the investors dig into the deal to learn the details.
Investors want to think about it and also want to see the startup continue to make progress.
Then comes the Due Diligence phase in which the investors perform a more rigid review of the startup’s documents, team, and market.
If the terms sheet has been established by other investors, then the investors review those documents. If not, the investor must negotiate the terms including valuation.
Investors then check with their network to see who else may want to invest or put it out to other investors for syndication.
Finally, there’s the closing of the round with the signing of documents.
It’s important to keep the momentum going throughout the process both on the investor side and the startup side.
