Our Investment Due Diligence Checklist

A pitch can tell you a lot about a startup. But due diligence can tell you its secrets. These are some of the things we look at when doing due diligence.

🔎 The Product

Does the product even exist?

Review their materials and source code.

Do they have IP rights or any form of protection?

🔎 The Financials

Are there unnecessary expenses?

Are the projections realistic?

Look at their burn rate.

🔎 The Legalities

Are there any legal disputes?

Look at contractual obligations.

Look at compliance and regulations.

🔎 The Cap Table

Look at the terms of previous funding rounds.

Are there any anti-dilution provisions?

What vesting schedules are in place?

🔎 The Team

How do they plan to scale the team?

Look at their advisory board.

Look at their hiring plans.
