Investor Connect Podcast

Diligencing the Exit

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In diligencing the startup’s exit strategy, check the following:

  • Do they have a list of potential buyers?
  • What companies are on the list?
  • What milestones must be met to qualify for a buyout?
  • What price is the going rate for buyouts in this sector?
  • Will the acquirer be buying the team?
  • Will they be buying the technology?
  • Will they be buying a specific product, or will they be buying the entire business?

The further down this list you go, the bigger the buyout factor.

It’s important to understand the exit upfront as it will inform the founders on decisions around funding, hiring, filing patents, and more.


Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.

On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Gregory Dewerpe, Founder at A/O Proptech.

Headquartered in London, England, A/O Proptech is Europe’s largest proptech VC firm. They are stage agnostic, investing permanent capital to support entrepreneurs and companies from Series A to later-stage growth and they enable founders to create, iterate and scale disruptive products and platforms by leveraging their unique access to large RE owners and managers, corporates, governments, and industry stakeholders. 

A/O Proptech’s mission is to transform real estate into a more digital, efficient, and accessible asset class by applying innovative technologies and business models.

Their vision is to improve the quality of life, accelerate sustainable living, and enable the decarbonization of the largest asset class in the world.

Greg is a long-standing prominent voice promoting the acceleration of positive transformation in the real estate industry. Having worked with and invested heavily in the sector (directly and indirectly), Greg founded A/O after running his own specialist real estate investment and advisory firm, AMD Capital, on the back of a deep understanding of the industry’s shortcomings as well as the realisation that the built world can be one of the most powerful vectors for change. 

Previously, Greg worked in investment banking at Credit Suisse and Citigroup, where he originated and structured over $30bn of new investments globally. Gregory holds an MSc in Business and Finance from HEC Lausanne, and has attended the London School of Economics and Harvard Business School’s executive education program.

Greg shares how he sees the real estate investing industry evolving and what he thinks will be the biggest change in the next 12-24 months. He discusses his investment thesis and some companies that fit the thesis.
