Startup selection and curation
Founders to fill the form and upload their current slidepacks/URL.
'T' minus 8 weeks
First round of interviews with startups selected.
'T' minus 4 weeks
Due diligence, coaching, tailoring slidepack.
- Select up to 7 founders and get them ready for pitching on the 'demo day';
- and Coach the founders to polish or tailor the presentation.
'T' minus 2 weeks
Finalise and distribute list of startups which would present at the 'demo day'.
'T' minus 2 days
Final versions of the slidepacks/executive summaries to be distributed among the participating members.
Finalising investments — Process and timelines
We estimate that it would take about 5 weeks (from the date of the 'demo day') to close the deal(s).
The 'deal sponsor' (i.e. a member who volunteers to lead the investment process) arranges follow-up diligence discussions with the relevant founder(s).
The deal sponsor completes due diligence, circulates a brief due diligence presentation or report in order to solicit further interest from the members.
Deal sponsor considers interest from other members and negotiates deal terms.
Deal closes and funds are wired to the startup.
